Resume Review Please

  1. I'm a relatively new nurse. The job market in my area is very difficult to get into. I found a home health nurse job in March. I rolled my ADN degree into BSN and finished in last week.
    I'm hoping a BSN will give me a little more leverage in addition to 6 months of home care experience. Here is my resume I'd love feed back.

    Also, do I include my ADN degree and my BSN degree?

    I always like to add volunteer work if you have any. Also I would kind of concise your first work experience . They like too look at a resume and skim it quick. Also in your additional information. Write what computer skills you have, and like any soft skills. Soft skills are like team work and communication. Hope this helps!!!
