    I say do both. Any education that you can complete in a short amount of time that applies to nursing, will most likely help you now and in the future.

    ~Now-- you may be able to increase you income (while in or awaiting nursing school) with the new qualifications.
    CNA salaries suck when you don't have any specialized skills.
    ~Later-- the phlebotomy will help tons after becoming a nurse.
    Many new nurses aren't skilled in phlebotomy or starting an IV, because you aren't given in depth teaching on that skill in nursing school. Phlebotomy can be intimidating for some at first. So I say learn it now, while there is no pressure.
