Nurse Resume Sample (Full Text Version)

Charlene Bear RN/student CNP

I have 28 years of nursing experience, with 18 years in the surgical ICU, 4 years in the MICU, and 6 years in pre/post anesthesia. I am an observant, critical thinker who cares for my patients and colleagues. My mother taught me that it is important to do a task right the first time so I do not have to do it again. That is what I try to do, and that is what I teach students and new nurses. I believe you can never know everything so you should not act like you do; instead, ask for help or do research on your own. Knowledge is wealth.
