There are many ways to apply for a position today - or just to get your name in front of the people making hiring decisions even if they don't have an immediate opening. Whether you apply online, go to a job fair, network on LinkedIn, or use snail-mail, somewhere along the line you are going to need a resume.
You should have a resume template that includes every detail of all the positions you've held, your school, continuing education, projects, volunteering, goals and accomplishments. From this document you will select the most pertinent items to include on the resumes you distribute to different people. For example, you can highlight your leadership skills if applying for a supervisory position, and highlight your clinical skills for a staff position.
