Post your first position, drop the student clinical rotations. Need to brush up on documenting clinical activities using action verbs in professional language. Do you really just "pass meds" or "Administer and teach patients medication regime and Evaluate side effects for 15 patient LTC Rehab unit..... Evaluate patients pain status and facilitate effective pain management techniques.....Assess patients post-op Rehab care for surgical complications and provide ongoing patient education regarding orthopedic precautions to maintain". I'd include major types ortho surgery your patient population has undergone. This should appeal to a recruiter looking to staff hospital surgical unit. Also list proficiency in wound care.
This should jog your descrption of patient care skills on resume.
