Great experience. My understanding is the objective portion is no longer used.

Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, x3 is incorrect.. no abbreviations allowed.

You spelled St. Francis wrong.

Special Procedurs is spelled wrong.

CLINICAL EXPERIENCE- you should list this as student rotations

Good luck! Let us know how it's going.


Specializes in Trauma ICU.

I always use the objective statement on my resume. If you leave it in, I would recommend adjusting it a bit...more along the lines of "...seeking an entry level RN position in ..." and stating what type of unit/environment you are applying to. You may have to change this if you apply to more than one type of unit.

Best of luck to you, SNGH is an awesome place to work!


Specializes in Stepdown . Telemetry.

This is good, all the sections are there. Now U need some action verbs and a few descriptions of what you actually did...

Some bullets can be date/place only if the role is clear, like AA Nursing, but an explanatory statement for unclear roles, or roles that you did valuable things.

You could elaborate on your navy reserve experiences, or the 2 first aid roles, as these are things that are unique. They spark the readers interest.

For example, you list two first aid experiences, but instead of listing 2 places you can have a single bullet- for example:

First Aid Volunteer: abc foundation and xx clinic, 2016 - conducted patient histories and assisted with diabetes screenings and vital signs for adult patients (or whatever you did).

You want to showcase our strengths. Then if you elaborate a bit, you might have to trim down the extraneous things that dont add much value.

Good start! You have good stuff to work with!

Take off the References Available line. It's no longer considered necessary from what I've read. As a new grad, they'll automatically ask for letters, usually later in the process.
