    When I uploaded this post some things got jumbled together.

    I would remove your objective statement. It takes up unnecessary space, and as a new grad, they know what your objective is. Also, I would remove basic clinical skills such as transfers and bed making. Takes up space, and every nursing student has to learn basic skills. That won't set you apart at all. Was there something outstanding or especially interesting that you learned at one of these placements you could highlight instead?
