RN resume with less than 1 year RN experience?

  1. I currently work in a telemetry unit and have been there since january 2007, my first RN job.

    My question is- I have a ton of nurse assistant experience, should i put all that in my resume (i.e. listing my tasks, etc for those jobs)?

    Also, I'd like to try to get into an ICU (I know, it's a long shot considering my experience)... My last semester of nursing school consisted of a precepted experience in a CVICU, which ended last december. Should I list that on my resume as well, or would that come up in the interview?

    thanks, any help would be well appreciated.

    Definitely put that on your resume. It's true, it's valuable and it might get you in the door. Without it you might not get to the interview, so get it in there where it can be seen.

    Yes, definitely include it. They were valuable learning experiences, weren't they?
