Resume Tips to Help Nursing Assistants Get Noticed

Resume Tips to Help Nursing Assistants Get Noticed

Jennifer LeClaire / Monster Contributing Writer

Include Certifications and Screenings

Not all nursing assistants are certified nursing assistants, who have completed a six- to 12-week program at a community college or medical facility.

If you have this special designation or any other certifications, such as CPR, these are valuable assets to list on a resume. Likewise, if you have any letters of reference, employment awards or other documents that demonstrate exceptional work, attach them to or incorporate the information into your resume.

Also, specify your own health screenings. “You should list on your resume that you are up-to-date on tuberculosis shots and hepatitis B shots, because this is very important to a potential employer,” Sturgill says.
