I would appreciate any input on whether to include my previous work history on my resume. I am a Dec 2012 grad of an ADN program and am not getting called for any interviews despite applying for 100+ positions. I left my last job in 2003 when I had my children and was able to stay home with them after they were born (twins), returned to school in 2009, and now I have my nursing license. I think the long gap in employment is hurting me and am not sure if I'd be better off leaving it off my resume and applications and just including my education. I have years of experience in healthcare as a surgical technician (7 yrs) and physician scheduling and administrative assistant for VPs in hospital administration (4 yrs). I do feel this experience is relevant to a nursing position, but prospective employers
apparently do not. Also, including this past experience makes my resume 2 pages and I know that it's best to keep it to one page. It's just not possible for me to convey what I've done and keep it to one page.
