    I think it looks great and very professional. However, from what I've heard over and over is that employers do not want to see descriptions of clinical experience; that every nurse manager knows that nursing students have done clinicals and they know what that entails. Unless something stood out from your clinicals, leave them out. Although, I am putting the hospitals where I did my clinicals on my resume, because HR may like to see that I am somewhat familiar with the practices of their hospital. Also, instead of an Objective, I've been hearing to title that section "Professional Summary" and do about three bullet points to highlight your credentials and objective. Good luck! It's brutal out there, I am a new grad too eagerly awaiting call backs from almost every hospital in three states lol
