Critique my resume please

  1. Hello,
    I was hoping for feedback on my resume. Resume writing is not one of my strengths. I have 2+ years experience as a float pool nurse in the maternal child division. Where I feel like I struggle in my resume is how to best express this, and not sound redundant. Also, Should I be including a Skills section? I have read some think that many skills sections include fluff, and stuff that it is assumed RNs should be able to perform. thanks in advance! oh, and please forgive the formatting
