hi all! i will be graduating in november from an accelerated bsn program. i am trying to rearrange my resume so that it corresponds with my new career path as a registered nurse and need some help! i previously worked as a pharmacy technician for 2 &1/2 years and did a nurse extern program for the duration of my short summer break. i am having a problem with what information i should include in my resume, what information i should omit, and what i should alter. i have read posts saying that you should include clinical experience but i am having a block as to what to put, should i just list the clinicals that i had (ex: med-surg, ob, psych, community health, etc) and the location in which i had them? include a description? if i could get some feedback on this, it would be greatly appreciated!!!!
