Hi, I currently want to get into a few accelerated nursing programs in the New York area. E.g. Stonybrook, NYU, etc. I recently graduated from a four-year college and have a BA in psychology with a 3.4 overall GPA. I am currently attending my local community college as a non-degree student to complete my nursing pre-reqs. I am doing good in those classes so far. However, I do not have anything good to show on my resume.
The problem is, I don't know where or how to look for them! The only things I currently have to show on my resume are my five part-time retail jobs as a cashier. And I volunteered once awhile back at a hospital. I go on this forum and I see everyone has fulfilling resumes filled with research positions or internships, and I have no idea how to get into any of those things. I've searched online for nursing internships but most of them are for people who are already in nursing school. I've looked for doctors assistant or research, but I never have enough credentials to get any of those positions. I'm so stuck! I hear accelerated nursing programs are extremely competitive, and that even people with 4.0 gpas can't get in. I'm so worried, I'm not sure what to do. Any advice would be great!
