1. Put that you can read, write, etc. Spanish FIRST under profile and your Certifications 2nd

2. I wouldn't put the clinical skills section because all new grads have the same clinical skills.

3. Do you have other computer skills you can add such as working with an electronic EMR in clinicals?

4. I like your cover letter. Short and too the point and mentioning that you're getting your ACLS shows initiative.
