School Nurse Resume Help


It makes me so excited that the last time I posted my resume I was job seeking as a new grad and here I am over a year later with actual job experience! :cat:

Okay on to the important stuff: I would like a critique of my resume. I am not actively seeking a new job. I love where I am, but I feel like I still need to have an excellent and current resume on standby for whatever may come my way. I feel like it's too wordy, but it's so hard for me to minimize! There's so much I want to say and so little room (and patience of those reading it). I tried to keep it as true to the really formatting as possible. Thank you in advance!
