I worked at the hospital as a tech in nursing school
and got hired as an RN before I graduated. I think this is a common scenario.
Some general tips/advice that I got from an ex manager friend of mine when I was looking for a new job and had my resume reviewed by him...
Become a member of a professional nursing organization
Get ACLS certification
Include your clinical preceptorship/practicum on resume with the number of hours
If you have a BSN, include it after your name at the top of the resume ex Your Name, BSN, RN
Other general resume tips...
Include your nursing clinical rotations on the resume with a description of skills learned
Since you don't have previous RN experience, you don't want a bare bones resume, but you don't want it too be too wordy - it can be longer than one page, but should not be longer than two
Don't need to include references on resume. Many hospitals have a place to put reference contact information on the application
Include any healthcare related volunteer experience
Include any service oriented/job related job experience, but only recent experience for example - experience as a camp counselor if you want to work pediatrics.
Of course include any healthcare experience at all
