Quote from rn2bin08
i'm graduating in may if all goes well and i want to start preparing my resume and looking for potential rn positions. i can't seem to find any guidance regarding what information to include on my resume and would appreciate some advice. does anyone know of any websites or other sources that provide examples? what are you listing on your resume? thanks!
i 'm in the exact same position as you! i've been on countless websites, and none of them are that great. the best i've seen is: vault.com - they actually have sample resumes and cover letters for new grad nurses (type in "sample cover letter: newly graduated nurse", and "newly graduated nurse resume"). they also have a good article regarding the correct format for writing a cover letter - "the basics of a cover letter". you can also try the university of delaware website - www.udel.edu/csc
to find sample nursing resumes. monster.com has a few good articles, including: "7 first-time resume concerns". yahoo! hotjobs has an article titled "killer cover letters". i'm sure there are more out there ....
i'm a career changer with no previous healthcare experience, with the exception of the cna job i've had since july. i think i'm going to include clinicals rotations, prior work experience, education, volunteerism/activities, affiliations, and special skills. what else can you put on an entry level resume??
good luck on your job search
