    If you could please look at my resume. I really stink at making resumes. Plus right now I do not have the money to invest in resume writing course. I am trying to get everything lined up and ready for when I graduate my RN program. Thanks ahead of time for any help.

    *** Hi, I made a couple of suggestions to your resume, now may I suggest u write a Functional Resume instead, where you focused more on the skills you have ,and what you can provide to ur new Employer,I would leave out the Chilli's experience, (i know u probably don't want gaps in your employment history, but if you wrote a resume, where you would not have to include that info. I think it would benefit you ,I would not input the exact amount of working experience you obtain in each hospital dept(since those hrs are very minimum, I would include the overall hrs of experience 675, and I would mention the different traits you learn in each department. ***Remember the're going to have other resumes out there with more experience than, you... Make yourself stand out, show them what you can bring to the table , they want to know that you are knowledgable at what your doing, I would also, include other computer skills, do you know Microsoft powerpoint,excel,ect. do you speak another language ect., I hope you find my advice useful, BEST Of Luck To you , go get them!!!

    Did a bit of updating. Here is the new resume. It is still 2 pages long not sure if that is good/bad. Also under my clinical hours as a student nurse not sure if I will break it down per hour in a unit or just put total of hours. I have heard from both sides that it is best to do it their way.
