I think that myth of only 1 page is an old saying. It's OK from my understanding to have more as long as it's relevant. I try not to exceed 1.5 pages.
I agree with what others have said. WAYYY too much fluff. Keep it relevant to the medical field. I'd remove the clinical rotations and skills as a student nurse. Incorporate some of the things you have under patient care in your technical skills with your experience and get rid of everything but the Epic charting. I'd remove everything after A&P tutor under additional skills as I think that is relevant being a new nurse. I also think that abbreviations should be limited. I write them out and end with the abbreviation. For example, Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Certified.

LookingAhead, please recognize that I'm not here to give you bad press. Or Columbia. My posts are 100% honest to my experience. You're comfortable with your decision to go, and I'm disappointed with the program, and therefore, my own decision. It's an opinion thing. If you want to be constructive, write a post about your great experiences, and let the prospective applicants use the information as they will! Of course there will be varying opinions on the program, and that's healthy. Let's not try to undo each other's opinions and experiences by clarifying and quoting. Quoting other people's posts in an effort to make them look wrong is just plain obnoxious. We're all in this together, whether or not we're happy with our choice. I'm not getting paid to do PR for Columbia, and I think more information is good when it comes to making such a massive financial commitment. It's information I wish I had as I chose where to go, and that is why I'm posting it here. Do your thang, share what you think needs to be shared, but please, I beg you, stop dissecting my posts.
One of my favorite nursing teachers says everyone will make a certain percentage of mistakes so celebrate the errors you make that don’t cause permanent damage or death!
I've been in nursing school since January and I've seen a wide variety. Yes, some that need a job that has some demand, and others that truely care and want to make a difference for people, others that just want the prestige that comes with the title RN, and everything in between. We're getting into the heavy duty learnin' stuff, and its going to get real tough. Those who aren't cut out for it will hopefully be shown the door soon.
Novo is a student.
Didn't we all know. So easy to tell.
