Transcript of Resume Writing for Nurses

Resumes & Cover Letters
for Nurses

Include information about your employment & internships/externships.

Include your position title, start and end dates, name of organization, and the city and state.

For each position provide a few bullets describing the work you did, skills you gained or accomplishments.

Do not write your job descriptions in paragraph format, list your previous job duties, or copy and paste a description from your previous employer. You want to write, in your own words, what you did or gained.

Use bulleted, action statements to describe your previous experience. Use present tense verbs for current positions and past tense verbs for previous positions.

3 main sections:

Introduction

Body

Closing
Does your cover letter have a strong opening paragraph, communicating your job target and key strengths within the first few lines of text?
Does your cover letter conform to a standard business letter format? (See our cover letter examples.)
Is your cover letter addressed to a specific individual, if the name is available?
Does the body of your cover letter express how you would benefit the employer if you were hired?
Do you avoid starting every sentence with “I” or “my” so you can focus more on the employer’s requirements and not your own?
Do you include examples of your accomplishments so employers can see you have a proven track record?
Is the cover letter succinct, containing just enough information to entice the reader to review your resume?
Is the content unique? Did you avoid copying text from your resume verbatim?
Does your cover letter sound genuine?
Does it reflect your personality and make you seem likeable and approachable?
Did you proofread your cover letter to ensure that it’s free of spelling, grammar, syntax and formatting errors?
Does the writing style and design coordinate with the resume, such as by
using the same font and layout style?
Did you provide an easy way for employers to contact you, such as a direct phone line and email address?
Does your cover letter end with a call to action, confidently requesting an interview?
Did you remember to sign your letter if you’re mailing a hard copy?
