How do I list my skills?

  1. 0 I have only had one job post-graduating and am looking to move on. In preparation for this, I've re-vamped my resume. In every different example I looked at, something different was done!

    Could anyone take a look at how I have my skills listed and perhaps offer some suggestions to increase readability? I was also interested in maybe listing a small paragraph overview of my responsibilities, but then highlight a few select "bullet points." If it helps, I'm applying to mostly PICU's and inpatient pediatric facilities, so I'm hoping to gear my resume to those positions.
