Do I put that I am getting my DNP on resume?

I have 2 more years until I complete my DNP-PMHNP degree, and I am not currently working. I am now looking to apply for psychiatric clinical RN jobs, as I've realized that the program is not as demanding as I expected. I have 1 year of clinical RN experience (from 2018-2019). My question is, should I put on my resume that I am currently in DNP school? Or should I just leave that out?

Thank you!

No. All that tells them is that the process they are doing right now to find you is going to be repeated the minute you graduate and move on.
