nursing credentials question


Has 5 years experience.

Hello! Just wondering if people list their nursing credentials at the top of the resume with their name? Or do you just add them along in your resume? My resume only has my name at the top. Not “Name, BSN, RN, PCCN.” It feels a little obnoxious to add all that but I don’t know if it would make you stand out more.

I think I would customize my resume for each position I applied for.  If your credentials are exactly what the position requires, then definitely display them at the top.

Otherwise, add them on as an aside.
