I have never held an actual full-time job (retail, fast-food, desk job, etc.)? Throughout my life, my parents have always told me to not worry about having to work and just focus on my education. Well, here I am, about to start nursing school without any kind of real-world job experience. The good thing, however, is that I have attempted to get my "foot in the door" by volunteering and going to health events to network with doctors and nurses and even got my CNA license so that I could work while in nursing school. Maybe this could help make up for not having any real work experience? The only experience I have is working my butt off making straight A's...I feel that, even with all that I am trying to do to make up for not working, it still won't be enough because there will be so many applicants looking for RN jobs who already have extensive work histories... Should I just continue what I am doing? What suggestions do you have?
