I have had a lot of jobs in the six short years I have been a nurse (husband is military, so many moves). I have always used an "objective" and "strengths" bullet on my resume. I think it gives a mini bio of yourself in a sentence or two. I have been on many interviews and have been offered appx 99% of those positions, so I personally favor objectives.
I agree many resumes can sound corny if not worded properly. Some people use WAY too many adjectives. I don't think there is a hard fast rule if an objective is right or wrong. If you do choose to use it, don't overdue it! Good luck.

Brief comment. Seems too wordy. Should emphasize what you'll do and bring to the practice first.
Well thanks Larry!
I usually emphasize what I will bring to the practice in my cover letter, so each cover letter is specific for the job applied. The resume objective is more broad and less personal. Also, my "strengths" bullet in my resume states my positive attributes that will be brought to any company.
Thanks for your constructive criticism.
