Being a new graduate nurse is an exciting experience. You're finally out of school, a degree in hand, and ready to complete the registration process to be able to practice the art and science that is nursing. Or maybe you're already registered as an RPN or RN, but haven't started your job hunt yet because you're missing one tiny little detail: your resume.
Fortunately for you, you've come to the right place. This article will tell you exactly how to write a new grad nurse's resume like the professional you are. Keep reading.
To create an effective new graduate nurse resume, you need to make sure to include these sections:
Once you have filled out all of these sections, a good recommendation when creating your very first nurse resume is to write a "resume base", which will work as a base that you can easily edit and customize for each role you apply to, if you're doing it by hand. This process is known as "targeting" your resume and it is very important, as it helps employers see that you are exactly what they are looking for, especially when you apply to jobs on your own.
This process, even though it is traditional, can be long and time-consuming. There's nothing wrong with doing it this way, but we wouldn't be true to ourselves if we didn't offer you another option - a more innovative and efficient option, we might add.
