If you don't have any training or experience, you cannot actually be hired as a nurse. Nursing is a complex profession that requires (by law) a degree from an accredited nursing school.

Here's how a list of qualifications might look on a professional Nursing Resume (align your qualifications to the left of the page):


(list each school like this, starting with your most recent educational experience)

Name of School

Area(s) of Study

Degree Earned, if any

From-To Dates

Name of Business


Reason for Leaving

Employer Name / Employer Contact info

You can also list important personality traits like punctuality, reliability, alertness, and advanced interpersonal communication skills, for example.
