pls.critique my resume

  1. Hello everyone,
    I hope someone can critique my resume.
    I don't have an RN experience except my nursing aide job while finishing my BSN,that was 10 years ago.I started a business with family but continue to find nursing job,with no luck,thus years passed by.
    Can this be put as my work experience,even if it's not relevant to a nursing position I am going to apply? In my cover letter,it's the only nursing experience that I can describe too.

    You've forgotten to list your objectives.
    As a graduate nurse, it is doubtful you are established in patient education. I would advise omitting this wording.
    Provide the name of the electronic documentation systems you have worked with.
    Provide your RN license number.
    Provide the expiration dates of BLS/ACLS certificates.
    Under work experience, provide brief details of your duties/responsibilities, who you reported to and who reported to you.
    Under education, provide College Name, Degree Earned, Year Degree was granted.
    Listing GPA's (if good) doesn't hurt.
