Looking for some opinions here. My spouse worked 10-years as a general surgeon in Cuba, but she's not practiced since moving here in 1997. She is very humble and managed quite easily to keep this hidden during her practicum in the Grand River surgical out-patient unit last fall.

So, is it better to exclude this on a CV (or tone it down a bit) in today's nursing climate? How can this be used to her credit?

Keep it simple. Tone it down. Put a couple of years of recent Long term care/ Nursing related employment on your CV. The more you give them, the more you'll be questioned. Give them just what they are asking for. Good luck. :)
