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."
