Hi everyone! So I'm facing a bit of a conflict in terms of work experience before applying to nursing schools
. I currently work as a behavior interventionist with kids with autism and am in the midst of applying to ABSN and ELMSN programs. As much as I love the kids that I work with, lately I've been having doubts about whether or not this experience shows my genuine interest in becoming a nurse practitioner, especially since I've started to see more people go for CNA positions to strengthen their application and gain more experience with patients.
I see how my current job could be related to nursing, but is that enough? Should I pursue something that is more medical and incorporates more "direct patient contact"?

Thanks for the suggestion, @Here.I.Stand! Do you know how I could change it on here? I have actually been looking for awhile now..
