Seeking advice on listing education in resumeRegister Today!
- by iliketosneeze Aug 23, '12I have a quick question about listing education in my resume. I知 applying for a position as a tech in a nursing skills lab at a college. Listed under requirements the position states RN/BSN. Currently I possess my RN and have completed my ADN.
I知 currently enrolling in an RN to BSN and aim to begin Spring of 2013.
**My question is would it advisable to list BSN under the education section along with the expected date of completion?
Thank you for you time.

- Aug 23, '12 by Ashley, PICU RNIf you have been ACCEPTED into the program, you may list it on your resume:
RN/BSN Program, XYZ University
Expected date of completion: May 2014
If you have not yet applied to the program, or have not yet been accepted than you should not list it on your resume.
I disagree that there is no need to list it. Nurses with BSNs are more desirable to many facilities. Some will consider you for a BSN required position if you are already enrolled in a BSN program.
However, in this specific case it may not help you either way. The position is at a nursing school, and most likely requires a BSN because of the nature of the education you will be providing to nursing students. But it certainly won't hurt to list it.
