Mistake: Being Too Vague

Using generic nursing industry terms and job seeker catchphrases are not going to get anyone’s attention. Do you know how many times they’ve heard that someone has “great patient communication skills” or “works well in a fast-paced environment”? A lot.

The Solution: Share your top selling points.

Get specific. Where possible, use numbers and success metrics. Don’t just say you’re a great patient communicator — tell them about how your skills helped calm a particularly difficult patient, or how you were the go-to nurse in the pediatric ward for your creativity and friendliness. And by the way, the same goes for your nursing resume!
