Hey everyone! I am a new grad in the Bay Area of California. I graduated with my ADN May 2019, and I am currently a BSN student expecting to graduate in December 2020. Finding a job in acute care has been extremely difficult, and I'm not sure how else I can improve my resume! I'd be so appreciative of any advice you all may have!

The issue may not so much be your resume as it is the area. The Bay Area is notorious for a glut of new grads. You may need to consider getting experience in another type of unit than your preference, in an area outside of acute care, or look into relocating.

Yeah in my area (midwest) this resume would land you a ton of interviews at the least and I would wager as long as you interviewed halfway decent it'd land you quite a few job offers. As Rose_queen said, I would look at a different area or specialty.

Your Resume looks good.  And like other posters said it’s the area you’re in I feel your pain as I too graduated into a glut of new grads and I wanted to stay in NYC.  Well 450 applications and resumes later I got my first job as an RN.  It’s a numbers game keep applying and customize your cover letters and for jobs you really want rewrite your resume to fit the job don’t lie just use the right keywords.  Use all of your resources prof contacts, find out who the hospitals nurse recruiter is and get your resume to them, indeed, volunteer, network, LinkedIn, keep applying Don’t give up!   - best of luck!
