Hi there! I am a RN with 1 year experience working in Labor and Delivery and Postpartum. I am looking to go elsewhere for PRN work (mainly Postpartum Units and Dr. Offices) and wanted some critique for my resume, as I have not updated it since gaining professional experience.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Especially when it comes to its organization. Thank you!

Have you done any volunteer work? I would include that. What about 2-3 nonfamily references? Maybe add something that makes you unique to nursing.

I do have volunteer work history that I can add as well as references. I just didn't know if it made it too bulky as this is already a full page on Word.
