Need help putting skills down on resume

  1. Hi everyone. I was hoping I could get some help with enhancing my skills on my resume. I work full-time in LTC as an LPN. I have some skills already on my resume but I'm drawing a blank and honestly don't know why I can't think of nursing skills to put on this resume. Please help me!

    Do you speak any other languages? Certificates? Volunteer hours that are medical? Talk about being a loyal employee, fast learner, compassionate nurse. Not sure if I helped but I hope this helps!

    Thanks everyone! I think I was just having a mental block and when I looked over my resume, my skills didn't look very polished.
