There seem to be so many "do's and do not's" when it comes to writing a resume and cover letter so I am wondering if anyone can help me with a straight answer? I am switching careers from a paralegal to a nurse and I just received my ADN 2 weeks ago. I am trying to sell myself to a Magnet hospital, which hires mainly BSN nurses. Because I already have a BS in Criminal Justice I am able to do a bridge program which allows me to "bridge" over from ADN straight to MSN (with a few BSN courses along the way).
In order for me to get the point across to the Magnet hospitals that I am planning on continuing my education to MSN, I want to put it on my cover letter. By doing so I am hoping that they do not automatically write me off as not having enough education for their organization. Is this acceptable?
It's tough trying to get this correct and really sell myself, especially with a career change and trying to get into hospitals that state "Bachelor's preferred" on their job postings. Any help or advice is appreciated!
