    Your resume is all jacked up. It did not copy paste correctly so I can't give a reliable opinion. Sorry.

    Your resume looks really good. The only thing I would suggest is possibly including the total amount of clincial hours you had at each site. Is "manikin" the correct way to spell that? I thought it was spelled mannequin. I am trying to finalize my resume. All of my background is IT related and now I'm switching to nursing.
