Resume help please!

  1. 0 Hi all!

    I'm currently at my very first job as an RN, and unfortunately like many new nurses I'm planning on leaving this one and going on to something I feel is more up my ally, especially since I have experience in it. (Moving from oncology bedside to psych [hopefully at the VA])

    Since I don't have much experience I was hoping y'all could help me edit my updated resume. Should I add a skills list? Thanks in advance!

    p.s. Sorry if the format came out funky.
