New USRN, but resume with no experience

  1. 0
    Hello, to make a long story short, I am a US citizen who earned my BSN in the Philippines. I recently passed my NCLEX and now readying myself to find a job.

    I've been told that new grads and new nurses with no work experience in the field can list their clinical rotations under education as a supplement to the lack of work history. Since I studied in the Philippines, all my clinical rotations were in Philippine institutions. My question is, do you think it would be worthwhile for me to include these in my resume?

    You need to be specific that it's your clinical rotation as undergrad. It may cause a confusion. Nonetheless, I think I rather not write it up.

    And a lot of research about resume writing... But still I only have related learning experiences (RLE) and work references/employers that are non nursing related.

    You can summarize the floors/specialties you have experienced under the section of "education" where you list your bachelor degree, but not as "work experience".. because it's not work experience.
