Nursing School Resume....

  1. Hi everyone! I am finishing up all of the materials I need to apply to nursing school, and need a bit of advice. I need to turn in a current resume as part of the application packet, and I am wondering if it is too long. It is a page and a half, and I know that most appreciate resumes that fit on one page, but I really want to highlight my CNA experience as that is a big factor in acceptance to the school. With that said, I am sure I could condense it to one page, but wouldn't want to "take anything away".....

    Anyone??

    One and a half pages is not long. That is how long mine was, and I have applied for jobs that way, as well applying for two ABSN programs, of which I got into. I don't think they are looking at the length of the resume; more about your experience. They want to see what you have been doing. I would not worry about it.

    Mine was three pages and I still got accepted for a MEPN program. So, I think 2 pages is fine. I think generally one page is a guideline for HR depts and not nessceraily Nursing school in general. They want to know that you have been keeping busy and highlighting important experiences relevant to nursing.
