    This is my one page resume. Since I copied and pasted it looks a little off. I did modify some of the names of hospitals and colleges. Wasn't sure if I could name places, so I left them out.
    I have no prior healthcare experience and need some serious help with my resume.
    Should I list the facilities and skills I have completed during school?
    My only work experience is in service industry. I didn't put it on my resume because most online applications ask for it any way.
    I have applied to so many places. LTC, clinics, corrections, hospitals. But I live in the middle of 3 ski mountains and have realized how much people desire to work in a town like this. I grew up in ski towns so I guess I have taken it for granite. Every position I apply for wants experience. Also, I have an ADN. The school I went to is small and only offered the ADN. I have all my prerequisites completed for my BSN but the online program I want to enroll in wants me to be a working RN before I can start classes.
    Does anyone know of a good RN to BSN program I could enroll in without working. There is one I have in mind but classes do not start until spring.
    Please, I welcome ANY recommendations!!!!!
