EducatioN: college degree, year achieved. Boom. I’m not a hiring manager but frankly I wouldn’t care if you ran track and got an award. Irrelevant to patient care in an icu.
Once I had a year or two of RN work, I started weeding out the irrelevant prior work experience. As a new grad I included my two years as a PCT and I included my years at Disney, highlighting my customer service/leadership experience.
When 1 year new grad and applying for icu, I left off the Disney. When I applied for an NP new grad I highlighted my years as RN and roles performed.
The further you move out from graduation the less it matters what you did in high school or college. Unless you have a GPA worth bragging about don’t include it, I never have as it really is a meaningless number. My opinion, I know others will differ greatly.
As far as the 5 year plan. Mention how you want to grow within the company, such as eventual preceptor, charge, committees (which hopefully are truthful). It is OK to mention that eventually you want to look into graduate school once you have additional experience.
