Is this the correct way to list credentials?

I'm a Family NP student. I have a BSN as well.

Would it be listed as

First name, Last name, BSN, RN, FNP-S?

Thank you!

You can't put any credentials that you have not earned behind your name. FNP is a certification bestowed after you passed the board exam, so you can't utilize "FNP" behind the name until you pass the board. You may state that you are a "Family Nurse Practitioner Student" in the body of the resume.

In short, as an NP student, you can only do the following:

Jane Doe, BSN, RN

Once you passed the board, you can use the following link which will show you how to display your credentials.
