Hey people, I still have time before I need to be considering this, but I figured I would inquire sooner, rather than later.
So I will be graduating in 16 months with my ASN (hopefully!). I understand that in todays economy a BSN is more desirable, and any grad nurse with no experience is not top pickin's.
I do have a few things going for me though.
I have been a CNA working in a hospital for over two years. It will be 3.5 years when I graduate.
How much do you think this will help my resume? (and my desirability as a candidate)
I am also volunteering with the Medical Reserve Corps, which is similar to the Red Cross, except on a more localized level.
Do you think that these two items help my resume all that much?
