Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Resume and CV Tips

According to the famous saying, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” This is true for your resume as well.  Organization, content, and structure are the keys to a successful pediatric nursing resume. 

For pediatric nurse practitioners, a resume not only documents your accomplishments, experiences and skills; it will speak for you when you cannot be there to speak for yourself.  Professionalism, clarity, and well thought out information will communicate these traits about you, and help you get the interview.

Answers to common questions:

Should I have a resume or a CV?  
If you have been a pediatric nurse longer than 5 years we highly recommend a CV to highlight your experience, education, research, publications, grants, honors, and professional development.

Should my resume only be one page?  
No, in the nursing profession most nurses engage in a multitude of areas of professional development that is difficult to showcase on only one page.  It is important to show the hospital environment you work for in terms of acuity, number of beds and patient population.  You will also need enough space to highlight your work experience in terms of accomplishments, procedures, and professional development.  See our sample pediatric nursing resume  

What is the best structure for my PNP resume?
The easiest to read and write, and thus the most common resume format, is chronological. It begins with your most recent PNP experience and works backward through your previous jobs. This format is most widely used by your peers.  Learn more about PNP Resume Structure
