Prepare your resume carefully and individualize it to each potential employer.

Resume templates are an option, but can be difficult to modify, with pre-formatted columns and text boxes. All resumes include at least the following categories:

Contact Information


Work Experience

From there, you can add categories: Objective Statement/Licensure/Volunteer Experience/Honors/Achievements (pick or create a headline/category that highlights your accomplishments).

Your resume should be consistent in choice of font sizes and weights, be easy to read, concise, and skills focused. Bullet points aid in readability. It’s what the employer will look at when deciding whether or not to see you. note: the formatting to the resume below is limited by Word Press and in Word would have a better appearance

A resume is more than a list of experiences. The purpose of a resume is to land an interview. Try to think like an employer as you construct it.

Keywords are in blue to show how the candidate bridges her/his strengths to the organization’s needs by using keywords from the RN job description. Keywords that may be programmed into scanning software may include words such as interpersonal skills, bilingual, communication skills, adaptable, energetic.

Editorial notes are in red. They show that everything you choose to include on your resume should have a purpose.

A resume for a new grad RN should be one page long.
