I was wondering, if I don't do a nurse externship in university, get a lot of work experience in a hospital, put it on my resume, am I still likely to get a job once I graduate? Or does that put me in jeopardy of not being wanted by any hospital?
I'm a 3rd year (Junior) nursing student getting her BSN. I go to a hospital and work with the nurses for some extra experience but not as an extern and in the state I live (MD), they require you are CNA certified to work in the hospitals. I'm not sure if it's a good idea to do because I only have a year left as a student nurse before I take the NCLEX-RN.
