Been a nurse for 10 years, resume questions

  1. 0
    So I have been an inpatient RN for 10 years now and getting tired of it, quite frankly. Obviously I am not putting that on my resume! But, I could use some tips please.

    I have worked at the same facility for 10 years, although on different units. How elaborate should I get when listing my responsibilities for each unit? Essentially, an inpatient staff nurse is ultimately responsible for the same things...patient assessment and care, medication administration, etc...do I elaborate on what that care entails? Currently I work with moms and newborns, sometimes I work just with the moms and babies doing couplet care, and sometimes I work in the nursery, and receiving newborns at deliveries...how would you write this on a resume? I feel clueless, its been 6 years since I've thought about my resume or interviewing, so I am sure I am not even forming my questions very well. My last resume just has one unit on it, and reading it now its pretty bland and not very elaborate. How many years back should a resume go? Prior to being a nurse I had quite a bit of retail management experience, just wondering if I should include that. Thanks!

    Ok,please ignore the bolded questions, I wasn't thinking clearly and I now know what to do with that portion. But the other questions I could use input on, thanks!
