Hello! I am planning to apply for jobs very soon; however, I would highly appreciate any questions, comments or concerns regarding my resume.

Smallest font is 10 pt, and it is one page.

Thank you for taking your time to review it!

I don't think that you need to include the typical nursing classes that every new graduate has taken to get their degree. I would keep Capstone in your resume, especially if it is in a specialty that you are applying for. In the eyes of an employer, a Capstone is equivalent to new hire orientation.  Which means that you can be up to speed quicker than someone that has never stepped foot on that unit.

I think the only thing I often recommend to new graduates is to include any experiences with EHRs on your resume. Otherwise, this looks good to me. We do have our students put their specific hours, but I think that's up to you. Hours vary by program so sometimes it's good to show how many you got and where they were done. Good luck on job hunting!
