Sample Nursing CV
Looking for a sample nursing CV? Like all CVs, a nursing CV should be presented in a clean, concise, easy to read layout. It should create an immediate visual impression to the recruiter, who often will not have more than 10 seconds to flip though the CV. Make your CV stand out.
We present a concise, to the point sample CV for nurses as a template to improve your chances of finding a nursing job in the UK.
A sample nursing CV should start
with a clear career objective (or profile), professional achievements, qualifications, work experience, membership of professional bodies, additional information, and references.
Please do not forget to include curses like ATLS, ILS, ALERT or ALS if you've attended one... this will separate you from the crowd too, during shortlisting!
Are you an overseas nurse, include your IELTS qualification if you have done the test... and possibly your score if you score more than 6.5 overall. Any little information to make you stand out will help.
In terms of format, most nursing CV will take the form of a functional or target CV. It could however be written in chronological format too.
This obviously shows that there is no one single best way of drafting a nursing CV. That is why we have decided to provide two sample nursing CV for reference.
Most nursing CVs and sample nursing CV are laid out in two pages, and will not list definite referees’ details, unless specifically requested.
