Lvn resume > PLease HELP!!!

  1. first, I am a new member on here but I been searching around this site for quite some time now and its been very helpful. lots of knowledgeable people here and that makes this forum great! im in a very tough position. I graduate and pass the board june 2011 but due to some legal/disciplinary issues I finally received my license last week, 4years later. its a huge gap with no lvn experience in between so its going to affect me when HR reviews my resume. im building my lvn resume in hope of landing my first lvn job. I lack experience so tring to make up for that with a shiny resume. I didn't add a objective cus im still working on a cover letter which I will post up as soon as I get it done. ALL PROFESSIONALS please help a struggling nurse get started!!! I would greatly appreciate all advice, and if someone can edit it for me. thank you in advance!

    (theres some misspelling, and grammar errors, i'll edit it later)
