I have absolutely no idea what I am doing! This is the first resume that I've ever made and it looks so pathetic and boring! I'm 23 and graduate this Spring with a BSN in nursing and am trying to get my resume together for a job fair tomorrow. I've checked out resume books at the library but none of them seem to focus on new student graduates/entry level or even on healthcare in general. I have it completed it but it looks so "blah." If anyone is willing to look at it and give me some much needed pointers, just post here and I will send it to you as an attachment via email. I appreciate and need all the help I can get. Thanks.:)
All you need is a standard resume. I went to a professional resume writer when I decided to change jobs after 18 years. His comment was "Your a nurse, you've always been a nurse, and people want nurses, don't get crazy with the resume". He was right!! I don't think they even looked at the resume since I was hired on the spot with the resume still in my hand.
A creative resume is more important if you work in a field that isn't as well defined as nursing, or a specific job description.
And yes mine looked boring too (even with 18 years of experience)

With the nursing shortage the way it is it is often a matter or "You're warm, you're breathing, you're upright - you're hired!"

Hi to yo all,
your replys sounds pretty good, I did send several resumees to different hospitals, but may be the problem with me is, that I´m a German. I made my education in Germany 17 years ago and for 10 years ago my 2 year training for an OR tech. Now I have a Greencard and I´m looking for a job as a ORtech and than to apply for the NCLEX in Calfornia. After that ( so God will) I will hold my Lisence as an RN.
If anybody know a Job as a OR Tech and a Hospital that is willing to work with me let me know it.
At last excuse my English it isn´t so pretty and don´t hesitate to correct me. ( it´s the only way to train the language)
Thanks for the replys everyone!:) I was able to change it so that I was finally pleased with it and made several copies for the job fair. The job fair wasn't quite what I expected and there is going to be one at my school next month. Hopefully, that one will be less hectic and more informative.
