  1. Hi everyone!,
    I want to include a resume with my applications. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to how to create a resume that would stand out? Are there any websites that I can refer to? Thanks.

    I went to the library and got a book on resumes. There was even a book devoted to NURSING RESUMES. It was a god send. Oh, and I got into the program.. =)
