New graduate resume help

  1. Greetings all, I am coming here as I often do, to seek help from all of you wonderful people. I am in my last semester of my ADN, for an assignment we were tasked to write a resume. I found a great skeleton of a resume which you will see below, and then added my specific information and modified it slightly. My professor who is a former manager for many years did not like this resume, and I have not been able to get much feedback yet because we are on spring break. I would like to get myself applying into jobs ASAP, and was wondering if you guys like or dislike this setup.

    I had an alternative resume that actually included a lot of the work experience which is what my professor suggested I do. What do you all think?

    As always thank you so much for any input.
    During my ADN, I have had clinical training experience in oncology, post-acute, HBNF, long-term care, and renal floors. I was able to work with a preceptor in ICU during my senior semester. Throughout my training I was able to develop the skills below:
