    that's my resume. if you have any advice, please feel free to tell me. i have several questions and explaination to do.

    1. please don't mind the font. it doesn't look like this in my real resume.
    2. should i put that i have aa in liberal arts? i think i should take it out and use extra space for more or course's course objectives.
    3. because this is 1 page resume, i didn't put the date or hrs after my clinical rotations. i tried to use little space as much as possible. (hr/nursing manager have a very good idea of how long new grad went through each rotation in nursing school anyway. i didn't even put what i did during those rotations.)
    4. i don't put my gpa because it sucks.
    5. i typed "extra course" because it's not from my nursing school. should i use "extra course" or i should use something else?

    thank you so much for reviewing my resume.
