what else can i do to be a competitive apllicant?

  1. 0 I attend CSUCI planning to apply to their nursing program, I know its a while till i apply, but i was wondering what else i can do to make my self stand out and be a competitive applicant, my schools runs with a point system, [FONT="Calibri"]BesidesGPA, Tease test score, residency, and current student at CI. I am bilingual; Iam almost done with my hours of 240 at st John's Hospital with cope healthsolutions internships. What else am I able to do? You think it would be goodidea to be certified as a CNA? So I can put that on my application? Also i bought two tease book guides to prepare me as well. [FONT="Calibri"]. Ishould be done with my prerequisites in spring. If you have any other suggestions on what i can do? so i can add more on my resume to make me be a little more competitive as an applicant. Thanky you!

    First of all good luck in your endeavor!

    Maybe you were typing on a phone when you sent this message, however I think it is extremely important to have good grammar, sentence structure, and spelling on all applications, resumes, and essays. This will be important for the TEAS exam as well!

    I think being bilingual is a huge bonus!!

    Agree with spelling & grammar. So very important because what you write is the first impression the school gets of you.
    Also, have you tried getting any recommendations? I sent 5 recommendations with every application (3 academic, 1 professional & 1 personal from a family friend who is also a physician). It really impressed the schools I applied to, especially the schools that had not required any recommendations. It showed them I was responsible & took applying seriously (as well as opinions from various people who had interacted with me).
