We have said a lot about what a nursing resume is all about. Let us now focus on what it is not. A resume is not a list of tasks that you have copied from a previous job or document that focuses on personal attributes. Neither is it a document with no structure and a lot of irrelevant information that the employer will never be interested in.

It is basically a wisely selected list of your qualifications and accomplishments. Look at the following sample in order to get a better idea how to write a nurse manager resume.
