Listing agency work on the resume

  1. 1
    It's time for my monthly resume update. In the last month I started working for a nursing agency as a second job (I am still working at my first job).

    I know I would list the agency as my employer.

    However, when describing my duties, should I include the hospitals that I'm sent to by name, or should I just state the type of facilities/units that I'm working at?

    Thank you in advance.

    My resume reflects the type of facilities or specialized units I've worked agency shifts on.

    Well, it's all psych facilities, so if there's any variation it's going to be the specific units I'm on. Would I mention these facilities by name or say something like, "worked on psych ICU and CD units?"

    I list my agency work in two different ways all under the banner of Awesome Agency Inc. The first way is if I'm sent on a long term assignment I describe my specific role at that facility. The second is when I do the same type of nursing but for multiple places. So for you I would put Psych Nurse facilities worked for included and then a description that covers everything you do overall in that role.
