I wouldn't be too worried because you haven't started the nursing program yet, so you have plenty of time to prepare. Please learn from my mistakes and listen to my advice! First of all, get a job as an aide or tech while your in school, if at all possible, this will be a plus on your resume especially if it's with the hospital that you're applying to. In addition, it will help you to become more familiar with the hospital setting and more comfortable with patient contact. Secondly, pay close attention to what content and clinical areas you like or dislike because this will help you figure out what area of nursing you should persue. And lastly, get your resume together, attend job fairs, and send your resume out early in your senior (last) year!! Nursing can be a very rewarding career, so don't let my experience discourage you! The problem for me was that throughout nursing school everyone kept saying that I would basically be able to pick any job I wanted. However, they failed to mention that the planning process must begin early. I hope this will help you, as you begin to persue a career in Nursing!!
