If you have absolutely no knowledge of how to write a resume then maybe this will help you but, gee, I found this very very elementary stuff. Unless you are a nurse with tons of degrees, professional designations, published articles, etc., I can't imagine this helping much. And then if you are such a nurse as I just described, you're not going to have much trouble touting yourself in a clear and concise manner. If you are a plain-vanilla nurse, with lots of hard work to your credit, but no groups of letters behind your name other than RN, this book will be of little help. I was looking for a book that would show me how to incorporate my lengthly business but non-nursing background into my nursing of 6 years to form a cohesive resume. It's not here. The author even says to not put anything on your resume that's not nursing related. This is bad advise in my opinion. If you had another working life before you became a nurse, and there are many of us that didn't come to nursing until our 30's or 40's, then this manual basically says to leave that info out. That's not telling the whole story of who you are or what you've accomplished in your life. This was a waste of money in my opinion. Wish I could get my money back. This book needs an overhaul to reflect real nurses.
