so I have been on the hunt for my first job as a RN. I have a long resume but no experience in anything medically related. I have been employed as Hair Stylist and bartender for the last few years even while in nursing school. I just need feedback as to how I should incorporate the my experience into a decent resume. All comments are appreciated good or bad
