There really aren't any great, fantastic, stand out at you examples of resumes for nurses out on the internet. At least, none that I can find for free. Sure, you can pay someone to write your resume, but in these penny pinching times, who can afford to do that?
So, you know what I'll do? I share with you, a copy of my *personal info changed* resume with you. I came up with the framework for my resume with the help of several different sample nurses resumes that I found on the web. Here we go........(of course, it looks MUCH better when formatted on Word!)
