This is probably late advice, but good to know for future reference, or new graduates reading this post: bigp and the others are correct in that objective is outdated. What you want to do, and what looks a little more telling about you as an individual, is replacing your "Objective" with a "Professional Summary", where you should state not only your strengths as a RN and employee in general, but also what direction you are interested in taking your career. This can be as broad or as narrow as you see fit. You should keep in mind what previous posters have mentioned, though, meaning if you are too narrow in your career path, it may cost you any opportunities based on your limited interests. On the flip-side, however, ANYTHING paraphrased with language acumen could demonstrate your ambition and make you more likely to get your foot in the door, depending on what a potential employer is looking for.
