In order to stand out from the crowd, your resume for nursing assistant position must present facts and figures regarding your professional qualification in a concise, appealing and visually aesthetic manner. Enlisting your work experience, education and skills using convention patterns and headings is going to make your resume bland. Modern resumes have two core sections in addition to conventional ones and these are discussed below:

• Profile/Summary: Profile or performance summary is a statement of the candidate’s competence and it serves as a trailer of what follows in the detailed sections of the resume. Powerful adjectives and industry specific key terms must be incorporated in this section to make it more appealing.

Note: You may use a career objective statement in case you have less or no experience in hand.

• Accomplishments: To make your resume more effective, quantify professional nursing assistance accomplishments so that the employer can see what results you are capable of generating if hired.
