Help!, I've been contacting those people I know but they're kinda busy at the same time too, and I need to finalize my resume so that all that's left is to make the cover letter. Would you mind helping me in giving feedback about my resume? I am a foreign grad nurse back in 2010 and i just had my license recently in NYstate but i am currently in Texas right now.
In my opinion, it feels too lengthy for me it went up to 2 pages. I just put what i think should be in there, let me know if what should i omit or what.
