Resume question

  1. 0
    Do you put "Mary Jones, RN, BSN" at the head of your resume, or just your name, and sign it with your title? Is it overkill to put the letters at the head? I don't have any other special credentials, so I feel it's understood that I am an RN.

    Any thoughts?

    I would. I mean, dang! you worked hard for all those letters! It would seem that the resume title is the right place to toot your own horn a little.

    I put Jane Doe, RN, BSN, CEN at the top of my resume (CEN is national certification certified emergency nurse).

    I list RN, BSN after my name at the header. I don't always apply for "nursing" jobs though (some jobs are looking for any health services degree) so I think it's been helpful.

    It doesn't really matter what letters you use. The important thing is that your header stand out from other resumes, it is always a plus to be able to hand the manager a copy of your resume in person. Good luck.
