Nursing student resume

  1. Hello all,
    I am a current nursing student and trying to apply for patient care tech positions and wondering what I can do to strengthen my resume in the interim until I graduate from school and then I will tweak as necessary to create my new grad/RN resume.

    Any constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks. I tweaked it a bit and added a cover letter. Also added all my clinical rotations as they say to do for students.

    I have gotten 2 call backs with my tweaking so I guess I did something right.
