Resume Help for Multiple Roles at the Same Hospital

Hi,

In June I was hired as a PCT at what I'll refer to as "Hospital A". In July I was then hired as a nursing assistant at "Hospital B". My resume currently reads:

Hospital B July 2011 - Present

NA

Hospital A June 2011 - Present

PCT

This month I was offered to become a Telemetry Tech at Hospital A and will be finishing up the training this week.

When I list the new role on my resume I'm assuming I will put in ahead of Hospital B, since it's my most recent experience. I don't know if I should have the two different roles under one heading for Hospital A though... I will also continue as a PCT there btw. Both roles are per diem. Any idea how I should present this?! Normally I follow a chronological format, which would result in:

Hospital A January 2012 - Present

Tele Tech

Hospital B July 2011 - Present

NA

Hospital A June 2011 - Present

PCT

OR should it read with only ONE heading for Hospital A with the two roles? If so, am I moving it up above Hospital B? How should it be written?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!! :)

i would put something along the lines of this. it's not uncommon in all fields to have changed roles but stayed at the same employer.

hospital a january 2012 - present

tele tech jan 2012-present

pct jan 2012- jan 2012

hospital b july 2011 - present

thanks for the advice. i will group it together. i feel i should put it below hospital b though, in order to continue with reverse chrological order.

sj73201 i'm very thankful!! i started applying at hospitals when i was doing my prereqs for nursing school. it wasn't until i completed the first year of my adn program that i got any response! so it took two years and i was very persistent. when my classmates were studying i was on the hunt for a hospital position! it's a lot to juggle with school, but i'm hoping i can get a new grad rn role at one of the facilities after i graduate in may. fingers crossed! :)

i dont think you should do it like that because it may take up too much space from your resume. since you are at that same hospital with different positions, i feel that this is the best way to go about it. i think it looks better as well.

i have a cna position now as well and i graduate this may from my program, i would take a job at my hospital if nothing else were to come up, but its not my first choice. my first choice didnt offer me an interview

a recruiter from a hospital i applied to in december called and told me they wouldnt hire me because i was so close to graduation! i was upset, but i understand. but its a really good hospital here in chicago :(

I would put the higher skilled role first i.e Hospital A and your Tele Tech first. The other way I think draws attention to the lesser role. UNLESS you are applying for a nurse position at hospital B. PM if you like I can look over your actual resume if you want I have time tonight.
