When applying for nursing school, do they consider your previous healthcare experience?
I am taking my pre-reqs for nursing-RN (just starting), and I work for 2 home health agencies as a CNA. I was wondering if they give priority to people who have had a job in the healthcare industry. I know they go by higher GPAs, but I was wondering if they also consider your healthcare background. Thank you!

They wouldn't give you priority, but all else being equal, your background could be an advantage. Certainly nursing schools consider such issues, but your grades and test scores are just as important. And your healthcare experience won't help if your grades and test scores are not up to snuff.
