    What about listing your skills.. That's what I did when I had no expericence as an Lpn.. I put things down like over 1500 hours in clinicals and listed the Things I did. Ex. Blood draws, foleys, ng tubes, patient care things of that nature

    #1 Hit your space bar harder. Lots of words are run together. FIX!
    #2 I'd put your nursing degree first, other degrees are secondary.
    #3 Other jobs such as office manager - one liners. If they want to know more, they'll ask you in your interview. This resume is for nursing. Keep it to just that.
    #4 Then for each position you apply for, you can taylor your resume to focus on skills that you think will help you in that job. You know, if it's an OB position, then put those skills first and expand upon them. Etc.
