After I graduated I moved from MD to WY to work as a nurse, but now I am back in MD and still am finding it difficult to get a job. I would appreciate any input on my resume. I have this resume and then another that does not have a skills section and just one detailed professional summary, but the descriptions under the professional experience becomes much more wordier. Please excuse the poor organization (the skill highlights section is really two columns), it looks better in a word document.
