For a nursing resume, emphasis should be placed on skills, certifications, areas of specialization, and experience. Rather than listing your professional skills or experience without context, be sure to quantify it as much as possible (eg “How much?” or “How many?”). Providing quantitative descriptions for your certifications, experience, and skills will help recruiters and HR staff assess your resume as needed, according to the requirements of the job.
