New Grad RN resume help

  1. 0
    Hello I'm just wondering whether my resume is up to snuff. I've currently been using this resume and have been called in for an interview. So I feel like it's okay but I think it can be improved. It's already one page and I really don't want to push into 2 pages. but I don't have a lot of talk about what I did during clinical and when I try to add it it just pushes it way to far. Any feedback is appreciated There's just some general formatting issues with copying and pasting also at the end there it doesn't have a ton of spacing but I'm mainly concerned with content
