RN Resume

  1. I am writing my resume for hospital jobs. I have been working in a rehab facility as a nurse manager for the past 6 months and worked as a LPN for 3 years prior. I am having a hard time with the experience portion of my resume. I am not sure what exactly to write. I know I should probably include the nursing process but having a hard time expressing it on paper. Here is what I have for my nurse manager position...if anyone has any comments that would be great! Thanks

    I think what you have is fine. Like I mentioned in another thread, try to keep the whole resume down to 1 page if you can so depending on what else you're including, you might be able to concentrate those 8 points down to 4 or 5 without loosing any content.
