I am finishing up some prereqs at the moment (AP2, Nutrition, Micro) that will be over with by the end of July. The ABSN program I am interested in starts in July, 2013, and I'm not sure what to do till then. I have already started volunteering at a hospital, and I'm thinking of taking a CNA course. Is the CNA course a good idea? I know I'll make some money for school, but is it worth the time and money, and more importantly will it better my chances of getting in?
Also, I'm thinking of doing an MEPN, because I do want to become a Nurse Practitioner. Is the CNA a good idea for this?
Are there any suggestions for what I should do? Get a job somewhere/do more volunteering, etc?
Thank you so much!
