Do you bother putting your BLS certifcation with expiration date on your new grad resume? Is it considered a "given" and requirement in order to have graduated?
I would say no. As you said, its a condition for you to have completed nursing school and will be required to be current with CPR for your nursing license, so any prospective employer will KNOW that you have it.
Yes, it should go on your resume. It's a legitimate certification and almost always a requirement of employment. Putting it on your resume allows the person reviewing it to be sure that your certification is current.
