Overview

Even within the nursing field, there are a variety of positions, and this book shows samples of resumes and cover letters that worked for real people. This title will be a valuable resource to nursing professionals who seek clinical nursing or administrative positions. Newly minted nurses and newcomers to the field will learn how to show off their clinical rotations to best advantage.

Nurses often change fields, too, and the book includes resumes of nurses who have successfully transitioned into pharmaceutical sales and other areas. A "bonus" of the book is that it includes samples of paperwork involved in obtaining federal government jobs: there are specialized resumes as well as the "resumix" and KSAs often required for federal positions. This book will show nursing professionals how to maximize their career potential, get federal nursing positions, and change fields if they want to.

A word of advice from Anne McKinney, editor: "As the world gets increasingly specialized, the career-minded need resume books which are specifically targeted to their needs. If you want to enter or advance in the nursing field, you don't need just any resume book. You need an industry-specific book. Every resume and cover letter we put in a Real-Resumes Series book has been tested and proven in the real job market. Your choice of a resume book is one of the most important career decisions you will ever make."

Praise for this book and other books in the Real-Resumes Series:
"It is very specific to the medical industry, teaching a foundation of medical industry resume writing which is easy to tailor and customize to special needs. Cover letters demonstrate how to support the resume with a hard-hitting summary." - The Midwest Book Review
"Distinguished by its highly readable samples." - Library Journal
"These excellent new guides don't just provide the usual coverage on how to write a resume. They provide industry-specific examples, industry-specific tips and cautions, and industry-specific strategies based on real-world resumes. Since many technical types aren't writers, this comes as a special gift; select a winning format, plug in your background specs, and away you go. It's that easy--with Real-Resumes in hand."-- The Midwest Book Review
"This thoughtful resource should come as a welcome and valuable tool." -Small Press

"I wanted to transition from clinical nursing into pharmaceutical sales, and the Real-Resumes Series showed me how to sell my potential as well as my experience." L. Barzos
"If you use a sample to create your resume, make sure you use a superior sample. All resumes in the Real-Resumes books have actually worked in real job campaigns." A. McHenry
"Even when nursing jobs are plentiful, a great resume helps you improve your access to the best jobs, best schedules, best employers, and best salaries." J. Neligan
