Some of the CRNA schools I am applying to are asking for a resume. My question is, what kind of resume are they looking for? Any tips for writing a resume for a CRNA school? Any suggestions would be helpful!

For CRNA school, you use the same kind of resume you would use when applying for any nursing job. It should include education, work experience, license and certification info and maybe even interests/hobbies. You should aim to keep your resume to 1 page. Hope this helps.

Think if you've got considerable experience, education, etc., one page may not do you justice.

But put down your most recent work and educational experiences that are MOST significant to your application. But it must stay ONE page, that is crucial. Of all the others applying the addmissions commitees do not have time to file through numerous pages. That's why it's imparative to highlight the most recent / relavent experience to your application.

Think if you've got considerable experience, education, etc., one page may not do you justice.

LarryG,

I have 10 years critical care experience in multiple hospitals and several different areas. I have attended 3 colleges/universities (4 now), and I have a lot of various certifications. My resume is still 1 page. The more experience you have, the less room you have on your resume for BS.

If need be, you could drop off the hobbies, but that helps people learn a little more about what type of person you are, so I would only remove it if you are really cramped for space.

PreCRNA,

You can also do a Google search and come up with a lot of websites with info about how to put together an effective resume.

It probably isn't the end of the world if you have so much to offer that your resume spills onto another page, but as LRoberts said, most employers/admissions people do not want to wade through pages of CV BS.

Don't believe that's the case.

For sure, keep it significant and relevant. But also make it interesting.

If you do the latter, you'll keep their attention. A must-do on paper and in person.

I say there's no room for BS period.

As to the hobbies... drop them... they're unnecessary... for the time being. If you can connect them to the job, then by all means bring 'em up in the interview.

Key is marketing. Top candidates (for high-caliber positions) are expected to fully demonstrate their qualifications. Can assure you most of those resumes will be two pages. Tender one-page and you'll likely be dismissed.
