    Here is the format I use:

    Name
    Address
    Telephone Number
    Email (if you have one)

    Professional Summary (Instead of objective)
    Skills, Computer, documentation (Make like a bullet)
    Professional Organizations
    If other jobs in nursing LPN CNA list skills etc.

    Credentials
    New Grad Passed NCLEX (DATE)
    BLS/CPR

    Experience

    Education

    heartbeat:heartbeatPersonally as a recent grad myself I put education high on my list because I had no work experience that related to nursing

    I put the name, address, phone number - centered in a heading

    THEN . . .

    Objective

    Education
    ~ Under education I also listed my internship on a neuro/med/surg floor because that was the type of unit I was applying to.

    GPA

    I didn't have my license when I started applying. . .so I left that out

    Career Experience

    Volunteer / Comm Service

    . . . .Then I centered at the bottom of the page "References Available"

    heartbeat:heartbeatHope this helps
