New Grad resume... Seeking feedback please

  1. Hey all-
    I recently passed the NCLEX, but I'm having trouble with some parts of my resume. I don't know if I should list the hospitals I did my clinical rotations in. I left them out because I went to school in Illinois but I'm moving to Colorado. Also, I'm not sure what to do with the qualifications summary, because as a new grad, I don't have many other skills.

    The tips I read on this forum were very helpful in helping me write this resume, but now I am stuck!! Please critique and don't be afraid to be mean.. I like feedback!

    I have never used a qualification summary on my resume so I can't really comment on that part but I think the rest of it is fine. It's clear and consise.

    There are currently two approaches to to boast skills...more CV style and one that boasts experience. Please let me know if you are still looking for advice and I can send you mine. All the best!

    Thanks! I ended up getting a job offer a month later. In the end, my manager told me it was me dressing in a suit and printing it on nice paper (not computer paper) that really sealed the deal. Hopefully, it will be a while before I'm job hunting again.
