Every step needed to have a seamless job search with additional resources to make sure you land your dream nursing job.
Starting Your Job Search
The job search process can be daunting for any nurse to navigate – from finding the right job to preparing for an interview, and everything in between.
Begin your job search
There are many things to consider when starting your job search. What you decide to specialize in, if you are a new nurse, and even where you choose to work. Nurses can practice in a plethora of environments, including physicians’ offices, schools, home healthcare services, nursing care facilities, outpatient clinics, and of course hospitals. Here are some additional posts to help guide your search:

Get your resume ready
A great resume can set you apart from candidates. Learn how to create or improve your nursing resume by using our nursing resume guide with templates. Our guide includes: writing the resume objective and summary, showcasing your skills, how to organize your credentials, formatting and more!
Customize your cover letter
Cover letters are your chance to introduce yourself to a potential employer. Learn how to create your own. Our guide covers the steps, includes examples and templates, and even common mistakes when writing cover letters.
Who you work for can make all the difference, so it’s important to look into who your future employers may be as well. U.S News compiles lists of best hospitals in multiple specialties and cities, so it’s easy to take a glance at top ranked hospitals that are award holders.
Another resource you can use is Yelp, as employees and patients will leave reviews there. Patient satisfaction is also one of the best indicators of a great employer.
