I graduated an ADN program in May 2010 and went straight into an RN-BSN program to make myself more marketable. Now I have 14 months experience in a SNF and will be graduating the my BSN in May. I am afraid I won't be marketable now because many new grad programs are asking for 1) No prior work as an RN and 2) less than 6 months-1 year of RN licensure.
I'm applying to do the CSU Chico Rural Preceptorship for Summer 2012 to keep my skills fresh, but I'm so discouraged.
Does anybody else have similar sentiments or experience? Any tips? Stories? Advice?
Thanks a bunch,
