I will be graduating in May from a major state university with my BSN and am applying to nurse residency programs in the Tampa area. In completing the application for Florida Hospital, there is an optional section in the employee profile for listing "Skills/Qualifications."
I was wondering if anyone could shed some light as to what is appropriate to put in this field as a new nurse graduate? I started to list all of the clinical skills I have learned and/or performed and it was becoming extremely lengthy and tedious (i.e., from bowel care to management of endotracheal tubes and tracheostomy ventilation systems). I am not sure how to whittle the list down, determine what is worth listing, or if I should put "buzz words" that apply to me (i.e., critical thinking skills, etc.)
If anyone has any feedback, I would GREATLY appreciate it. I have been trying to figure this out on Google and not having much luck!!! Here is a screenshot of the section if it helps. I have information to put for everything else, but this one is killing me.
