Nursing Career Tip:
With a wide range of nursing positions, duties will differ across your career. When it comes time to update your résumé, it's simply not enough to state, "Provided patient care."
You need to get more specific. For example, what type of patients do you care for? Do you start IVs? What medications do you administer? What equipment do you use?
You perform hundreds of duties, so how do you decide which ones to highlight? Do some research on the organization you wish to work for by visiting their website, checking out their latest community news, and reading through their open positions.
Once you've determined the duties of importance, you can list these in your keywords section and incorporate them into your accomplishment statements.
