really quick résumé question...

  1. i've been searching the boards and online and couldn't find a definitive answer... i'm hoping someone here could quickly tell me...

    when i put my name at the top of my résumé, do i need to include my RN designation?

    ie: Kudra Lastname, R.N.

    or is it a moot point, since you're obviously an RN if you're applying for an RN postion...

    thanks in advance...

  2. Poll: do i include the R.N. title or not?

    I don't know the answer, but I always use it because I consider myself a professional and I worked hard for the title.

    I would add the title because that is what you are and you worked hard to get there.

    That's your title (presuming you're so licensed). Absolutely correct to use it.

    If you're applying for a job outside of nursing, then you might prefer to not use it (and instead use another title that you've also earned that's more apropos to the situation).

    Absolutely put RN after your name on a resume.
