Next spring I will be applying to the Nursing Schools at UNC and UNC Charlotte. I will have some extra time this summer, and I want to either take a class to become a CNA or go abroad for 4-6 weeks. If I went abroad, I would go on a volunteer medical trip where I could actually be assisting nurses in Asia or Africa. My question is, which would look better on my Nursing School application? Having a CNA 1, or having spent 6 weeks giving medical aid in a developing country?
Btw, having a CNA is not required for either of the programs that I'm applying to.
Thanks!!! -NR :heartbeat
