Outlining Your LPN Educational Experience On Your Resume
As with many other licensed careers, your level of education and training is imperative when creating your LPN resume. In order to become an LPN, you must undergo a specific level of training and pass a state licensing examination. When you’re constructing your LPN resume, it’s important that you understand the best practices when it comes to outlining this vital information. Failure to do so correctly can lead to a potential job interview passing you by as they aren’t sure whether or not you feature the proper training in order to do the job. Therefore, it’s imperative that you spend time learning how to accurately depict this information on your resume. While it takes a little time to do so, it’s well worth this time investment.
Before you start sending off your resume to a potential employer, take a few minutes to review this list of Do’s and Don’ts.
Do #1 – List Education in Reverse Order
If you have a bachelor’s or master’s degree, you should make sure that you put this degree first – starting with the highest level of degree you’ve accomplished. Typically, if you have a bachelor’s or a master’s degree, you shouldn’t bother detailing that you have a high school diploma or GED. This is assumed as you must have this designation in order to complete an undergraduate or graduate degree. If you have any relevant certifications within the industry you put these directly underneath your associate’s, bachelor’s or master’s degree.
Do #2 – Detail Your GPA and Various Accomplishments
If you’re a recent college graduate, you should put your GPA and various school accomplishments. Regardless of whether or not you’re a recent graduate, you should always include various accomplishments, such as scholarships, academic honors or making the Dean’s List.
Do #3 – Input Your License Number
As an LPN, you must indicate that you have a valid license to perform this job within your state. Therefore, you should put the state you’re licensed in as well as your license number. This way, if the hiring manager is interested in bringing you in for an interview, they can swiftly check the status of your license as you’ve already provided them with the required information. This makes their job must easier.
Don’t #1 – Avoid Embellishing Details
Never exaggerate an award or the level of education you’ve accomplished. If you have a bachelor’s degree, but didn’t finish your master’s degree, don’t put that you’re graduate from a master’s program. Rather, you can state that you began a master’s program and quickly detail the coursework you’ve completed and your expected graduation date – if you’re planning on finishing it.
How to Get Your LPN Resume Noticed By Employers
Did you know that the average hiring manager only spends anywhere from six to 15 seconds looking over your resume. At the most, a hiring manager will spend one minute glancing over your qualifications before making a decision. This raises a significant question – how can an LPN ensure their information is laid out in such a way that their major accomplishments and qualifications are easily gathered by a hiring manager? Well, there is a long a short answer. The short answer: you should tirelessly work on your resume to ensure it’s instantly eye-catching.
When you’re an LPN looking for a new job, there are several universal tips you can follow to ensure your resume is immediately noticed by employers. These include:
Tip #1 – Use a Standard Resume Format
While you may think that going outside of the box and using a unique resume format will help you stand out from a crowd, this can definitely backfire. Because an average hiring manager will look over hundreds of resumes for a single position, a flashy and creative resume will likely get lost in the shuffle as they will have to spend more time searching for pertinent information. As a general rule of thumb, stick to the old-fashioned resume format.
Tip #2 – Highlight Your Accomplishments
While you may not want to shake up the formatting of your resume, you do want to ensure that your move relevant experience that pertains to the job you’re applying for is featured. Within a matter of seconds, a hiring manager will glance over your entire resume. Therefore, you should ensure that your most proud accomplishments – and experience that relates to the position you’re applying for – is readily available at the top of your resume and not buried within a mountain of words.
Tip #3 – Emphasize What’s Important
While you may be proud of your internship at a local company, this could overshadow a much greater element within your resume. Should you have experience working for a well-known hospital or interning with a renowned medical facility, make sure that this information is displayed more prominently than other, lesser-important details. If you only have experience with small medical facilities, then you’ll want to put greater emphases on your actual job title and duties within that position. You can use bold font, but make sure to use that only sparingly to highlight a major accomplishment that will be attractive for the hiring company.
