I am currently an undergraduate fulfilling a BS in Natural Science and minoring in nutrition and biology. I plan on applying to a few Direct Entry MSN programs and hope to become some sort of APN someday. I volunteer at a hospital and am an athlete at my school. I am registered to take a CNA course this summer and plan on applying for CNA summer jobs next summer. What else can I do to strengthen my nursing application? What are the direct entry MSN programs looking for in their applicants? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

You seem to be doing the rigth thing thus far. Its always helpful to get to know someone within the field, shadow them & possibly use them as a reference. CNA skills are your best route!!! Good luck
