    I would put your employment in reverse chronological order, meaning most recent first.

    Thanks! Do you think it is too scarce or does it pretty much get the point across?

    I would add a little more.. You can use Word and they have templates that actually make it really easy to put together a great looking resume. It looks a little bare with just the job info.. Good Luck!

    Templates are very helpful. You might want to add licenses, certifications/courses, and any volunteer work experience. Take a look at some example nursing resumes. I've seen a lot of good ones out there. Good luck.
