Would you include this on your resume?

On my resume I have a heading called "student clinical experience". I currently have my medical-surgical and transition experience listed. I am unsure whether I should include my clinical rotations, however. I was in an accelerated BSN program so I had very short rotations. For example: 1 day ICU, 1 day ED, 1 day PEDs, 1 day OR, 1 day mental health, and 4 days OB. I also had clinical with EMS, fire department, and home care (2 days each). Since the time is so short for each I wasn't sure how I could include them on my resume. Thank you for any advice!

Clinical experience is about the same for all new grads, regardless of location or type of program. No need to include it. When I look at resumes, I generally skip this section for the reason I gave.
