I'm a relatively new nurse. The job market in my area is very difficult to get into. I found a home health nurse job in March. I rolled my ADN degree into BSN and finished in last week.
I'm hoping a BSN will give me a little more leverage in addition to 6 months of home care experience. Here is my resume I'd love feed back.
Also, do I include my ADN degree and my BSN degree? NAME, RN
