My current position in case management is really not a good fit. I’ve been actively applying for positions in hospital settings, but I’ve only been in my current position for about a month. Should I include this job on my resume? Otherwise it looks like I’ve been out of work since May 2018

It's usually not advisable to put down jobs that you have worked at less than a year because it can make you appear "flighty" and "wishy washy". Jobs want to know that they are going to hire someone that will stay for a long period of time. They may look at the fact that you just started a job, but looking for a new one as a bad sign. Personally, I wouldn't & just say that you took the time off of work because of school or personal reasons.

I had no problems having a year long gap in my resume because I went to nursing school & took that time off to concentrate on the program. I graduated in July 2019 and didn't find a job I actually wanted until october 2019; they didn't question the gap between July-October what so ever.

I'm not sure what the reason is for your gap or if you had prior nursing experience before that gap (because I didn't have nursing experience. Just like CNA experience), but this is just my personal experience.
