    Product Description:

    Nursing Resume: A Job Guide for nurses is a complete book package to help nurses find a job. This book is short and to the point, and the entire package includes 10 premium resume templates (see inside book for a preview), 10 premium cover letter templates (they match the resume templates), a few basic traditional resume templates, and a sample resignation (or two weeks’ notice) template.

    All templates are in .docx format and are best edited in the Microsoft Word software. If you do not have Microsoft Word, you can usually download a free trial. Google Docs may also work; however, formatting errors may occur if you use other programs other than Microsoft Word.

    These templates must be downloaded online using information at the end of this book.

    Why Do You Need a Custom Resume Template?

    Your resume is the very first step in getting a job. When you begin searching for a job, you’ll ultimately be uploading or submitting resumes to various employers. If you turn in a poorly constructed resume—it could get tossed in the trash.

    You want a resume that will stand out and grab the hiring manager’s attention. That’s why I contracted a graphic designer to create 10 professionally designed resumes—all with nursing/healthcare themes.

    These resumes include all of the major sections. All you have to do is fill in your own information. They are completely customizable, and you can edit the text, add sections, or change them any way you want.

    You also get the 10 beautifully designed cover letters that match the resumes. You also receive a resignation template—for occasions when you need to leave your current job for a better opportunity.

    One resume template alone would be worth the price. However, you’re going to receive all 10 professionally designed resume covers, along with cover letters and this short job guide.

    About the Book

    This book was designed to give you the information you need to strategically find a job. You’ll get information on compiling your resume, tips on how and where to submit your resume, tips when sitting for an interview, tips on leaving your old job, and tips on advancing your career.

    This is not just a book—this is a job tune-up. The guide is short and to the point, and focuses on the information you need to start finding a job immediately.

    The author, S.L. Page, shares her insights into getting a job. She combines her personal experiences along with the advice of nurse managers she’s spoken with through the years.

    What This Book Package Includes:

    • 10 beautifully designed resume templates
    • 10 matching cover letter templates
    • A resignation/two weeks’ notice template
    • The paperback book (to help you find a job).

    Template Requirements

    Templates are in .docx format. It is best to use Microsoft Word to edit them. Google Docs, a free alternative, may work okay—but some minor formatting errors may occur. For absolute best results, we recommend using Microsoft Word to edit the templates.

    Template Licensing Terms

    The templates may be used an unlimited number of times for your own personal use. You may not resell, redistribute, or give away for free any of the templates included with this package.

    • craft a narrative to show potential employers your unique story,

    • stand out throughout the hiring process, and

    • read a hiring manager’s mind!
