I am Union President for our fire department (320 FFs) and am transitioning to nursing, then planning on looking at anesthesia. My overall question is here in FL, nursing unions are very few,not as strong or respected, and most institutions frown at them (probably the same for most unions). When I apply for a job as a nurse I will leave it off the app, but should I include this experience in my vitae/resume when I apply for anesthesia school? Does it even matter or is it a risky gamble. I would like to show the experience and community work we do annually, highlight management experience, and other benefits but don't want to get rejected because of perception either. Any thoughts?
