Would appreciate resume help


  • Specializes in Pediatric Oncology/BMT.

I would love any constructive criticism about my resume!

I'm in a BSN/MSN program and graduate in May. I'm in the process of applying to inpatient RN jobs and am having some trouble editing my resume. I'm not sure if I should leave my NP rotations on the resume, or where I should put them. I'm only applying for RN jobs to build up my experience and skills. I took the NCLEX halfway through my program but have only worked as a camp nurse for one summer, so have very limited experience and thought it would be better to leave more about my clinical rotations. Any advice would be great!
