Constructive criticism on my resume, please...?

  1. 0 I always get such great advice on allnurses, I would like to get some constructive criticism on my resume. Obviously I changed a few names to maintain my privacy, but the over all format is the same.

    Is it a good length? Too much worthless info? I appreciate your feedback!!

    i'd suggest a few things. your sentence fragments are fine (though you could cut the number down by half to have greater impact) but they should all match in form-- parallel construction is pleasing to the eye and cognitive parts :d. e.g.,

    • assertive and ethical
    • comfortable
    • skilled
    • confident
    • accomplished
    • consistently demonstrate ((not adjectives! does not match!))
    • familiar with
    • proven ability ((not adjectives! does not match!))


    • assisted (verb)
    • responsible (adjective)
    • acted (verb)
    • certified (adjective)

    and so forth c all the other sections
