RN resumes follow standards of their own

A question I am frequently asked by nurses: “Does my resume have to be on one page?” In some occupations, a one-page resume is standard but not in nursing. By the time you list your education, licensure information, certifications, and one or two jobs, you’re already on two pages. A two-page resume is standard for most nursing
employment situations.

And don’t confuse a curriculum vitae or CV with a resume. They are two different animals! A CV is a longer more expanded version of a resume reserved for doctoral degree driven environments such as academia, research, advanced practice and the publishing world.

If you have specific questions about your resume, send them to Dear Donna at for a personalized response.
