    Product Description:
    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 Testimonials from people who have successfully used this book: "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 "When I entered the nursing field, I was unsure about how to show off my clinical rotations for maximum impact. Even though I was fresh out of nursing school, I used Real-Resumes to emphasize my clinical rotations and the cover letter I used helped me get a prestigious fellowship." A. Santos

    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.
