CNA resume, do I include other education

Posted

Specializes in orthopedic; Informatics, diabetes. Has 8 years experience.

I need to have a medical resume. I already work as a CNA in Home Health part time and I am also a Nursing student. I want to try and get some part time work in a hospital setting (weekends/nights) PRN.

Here is my dilemma: I have a Masters degree in Teaching, Bachelors in Biology and an Associates in Criminal Justice. I do not want to lie on my resume, but do I list ALL of that in my education section???? Other than the Biology degree, it is irrelevant to a job as a CNA.

TIA

MN-Nurse, ASN, RN

List them.

If nothing else, it makes for great "Why are you here?" interview banter. I kept my engineering degree on my resume and it always made a great conversation starter for interviews from CNA jobs to RN jobs.
