Resume Advice

  1. Hello, I am a new licensed LPN II and trying to incorporate experience into my resume. I would like to start out on a med-surg floor. The question is I don't know if this information can help me or hurt me in being hired. I was a Vet-Tech (educated at Mississippi State University's Vet School) for 11 years, and am now a LPN upgrading to RN in the future. I have much hands on experience in surgery for large and small animal, plus in labor and delivery in large and small animal, including assisting my own cows and mares in difficult births on my farm. Also diagnostics, vaccines, IV's, pharmacology, etc. Should I add this information into my resume? Do hospitals/healthcare, frown on employee prospects coming from the Animal Health field. Would love to hear feedback from someone familiar with this area, resumes, human resources. Thank you

    Your experience is your experience no matter what the attitude of the reader of your resume. Personally, I am quite impressed and believe you should emphasize your skills and accomplishments in the animal health field. JMO
