I have decided OHN is for me, a perfect married of my BS in Exercise Science and nursing. Problem
: most employers want RN with acute care experience. I am doing the LPN-to-RN, but won't be able to start for another year - Fall 07. Question
: I was wondering if I took the EMT course and volunteered for two years prior to getting my RN if most employers would accept that as my acute care experience?
I know I can get the jobs w/o the acute care experience as I was recently offered an OHN job without the experience. I had to turn it down though, the drive was over an hour, and would be at 0100.
So bummed to have turned it down too. It was with Tyson foods and would have been a wonderful experience. I would have gained so much.
I feel if I get the acute care experience I would be more marketable. What do you guys think?
PS Any suggestions on how to fatten my creditials while I wait to start LPN-to-RN? Certifications, other volunteering, etc. Anything is helpful.
