I am a new grad ER nurse in Chicago, I just started working in January. My mother had a massive hemorrhagic stroke and I am thinking about moving back home. I would like to know peoples thoughts on including my one month of experience on applications/resumes.

I'm a new grad, so I can't speak from much experience, but I think that you can include the one month experience on your next application. A month's experience is significant when you're a new grad; I've been learning quite a bit with each new week. You have a very valid reason why you had to leave the job in that your mother had a stroke and needs your help. If you are in an interview and an interviewer gives you a hard time about it, I would get out of there and never work for such heartless people. It will look odd on your resume, though. You might want to speak to a professional resume writer about how to best present that. Good luck to you and your mother.
