I believe so. I have a friend who did an extership while in nursing school and got a job right after college. A friend of hers did not take the externship and had a hard time finding a position. Good luck!!

It couldn't hurt. At the very least, you know the terminology and will do better in school! Where are you living? Here in PA (and also in NY) nurses are so scarce that many hospitals will pay for you to go to nursing school if you sign a contract agreeing to work for the hospital for a few years (usually 3 to 5).
