resume objective for a CNA/student?

  1. I'm working on my resume for a CNA position, but only plan on working in that capacity 6-8 months until I graduate with my LPN. I'm wondering how to state in my objective that I want to work long-term with this hospital, to let them know that they won't be wasting their money in hiring/orientating me. I thought about something along the lines of "Seeking long-term employment relationship..." But I'm not sure. Objectives are always hard for me. Also, are periods required after each statement on a resume if it's not a complete sentence. I can't find a good source on this and some I see have a period and some don't. Probably doesn't matter as long as you're consistent.
    If there are any professionals who would be willing to look over my resume for me I would really appreciate it. I don't have any CNA experience and haven't worked in 5 years so my resume doesn't seem very exciting towards working in the health field. This is my way of getting my foot in the door as a nurse though.

    I am not a professional resume writer but what I had was something like this:
    OBJECTIVE: I desire to work full time as a CNA.
    SHort, sweet and to the point.
    As far as periods, I used them. I did bullets listing the tasks I performed under my individual past jobs and I put periods in them.
    My computer has a professional resume builder in the Word program so I just set it up that way and then tweaked.
