Clinical experiences do not
count as past employment. I recommend that you do not
list your clinical experiences under the past employment section. (They are not the same! Clinicals are an unpaid
requirement for nursing school
.) I would only include paid
work experience under this section.
If you have held any previous jobs (including those unrelated to nursing/healthcare), I would list those under the past employment section. By including even unrelated past employment, it shows that you are capable of holding a job, are able to work with others, etc.
If there is a section on the application for clinical experiences, I would list clinical experiences there and only there.
If it is the type of application that allows you to add a section and there isn't a section for clinical experiences, add one.
Best of luck!
