On a resume for a prospective CNA, should healthcare related abbreviations be used? Following the sticky links in the career advice section leads to conflicting opinion.
Standard practice is never use abbreviations. The example resumes do use abbreviations. Some were, understandably due to my experience level, cryptic.

On the flip side I can't imagine writing out Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillator (CPR & AED).
Where's the line? A former boss would go bonkers if he rec'd an e-mail that contained an acronym he didn't know where the writer just asumed he knew it. So I'm sensitive...
