Hello All! I am new to this site and new to resume writing as well. As it stands my resume is pretty rough. I'm currently working as a server so my nursing experience consists solely of that which I gained from nursing clinicals. This is what my resume looks like so far, but after wading through tons of resume examples online I'm honestly not really sure what it should look like anymore! So...I used A resume building program which threw the formatting off but, here is is:

All advice/constructive criticism welcome! I feel like its lacking, I'm just not sure what it needs (besides the obvious work experience that I don't have). Should I cut out some of my work experience? I was told to pick out what could be relevant to both fields and work with that but it doesn't seem to be working very well. Thanks in advance for your help!
