    I say focus on the nursing interventions you did, instead of the rotations. When I was a new grad, a HR rep told me I did not have to list that; they already know that you had clinicals, as others have stated.

    For example; if you had a pt who had a TURP, Chest Tube, Wound Vac, C-Section, Skin Graft, etc...Rotation in the ER (pt the hours down)...those are significant for the learning exposure

    I didn't use a cover letter. I used the intro to my résumé to describe me, my goals as a new grad, and filled education and experience.
    Good points. But I disagree about cover letters. A resume describes your experiences. The cover letter is where you market yourself and hopefully makes me want to read your resume. I get a lot of resumes where I have to wade through drivel. A good cover letter may help.

    I have no issue using cover letters; I didn't use one; my résumé alone sold prospective employees in hiring me. I don't do fluff, and drivel. My résumé was built on suggestions from a nurse recruiter; her suggestions and my tweaking helped me become a viable candidate.
