New grad RN - resume - help please


[h=1]Hi Everyone. I'm revising my resume and I want to include my preceptorship and clinical experiences.

1) Does this format work to include my clinical rotations? I don't want to explain each rotation because it's pretty self-explanatory and repetitive for the descriptions.

2) What should I put for objective? Should I include my work ethic and personality type traits in this part as I've seen some people do on here? Or just keep it basic?

3)It's currently a little over 1 page, I need to trim it down or fix the spacing

Thank you!!!!
