The most important thing, as with any school is to have a clear picture of how you see yourself as a future provider. Get clinical experience that is as hands on as you can find. If u have an area of interest that you'd like to pursue professionally, get experience there. I worked with a FNP at SF General, but other people had varying experiences. Most importantly(because we all did it) know that it's more impressive to them if u have a clear vision of what you hope to achieve in nursing than if you spend your energy trying to figure out what they want. It's a GIANT step into professionalism. Prepare yourself now. Good luck!
