As an Oncology Nurse Resume writer, I’m often asked why it is so important to include your title in your Resume. After all, isn’t the job to see that you’re taking care of patients in a professional manner? I’ll discuss this topic further in this article.
Unfortunately, the Oncology Nurse professional field has no shortage of rude, nasty, snarky, and downright “mean” people who believe that you are not worthy of any kind of respect or dignity. I was told by a well-respected Oncology Nurse that “caring for sick people in a caring manner” is simply not a buzzword. That should tell you something right there.
When you are developing your Oncology Nurse Resumes, try to avoid using any buzzwords like “caring,” “professional,” or “respectful.” Those words don’t come close to conveying the image that you are trying to project.
To accomplish the “right look” for Oncology Nurse Resumes, try to look at the topics in a slightly different way. Remember, you are a nurse that cares for people. You must learn how to have the patient’s interests at heart. You must be professional, courteous, and kind.
When I was an Oncology Nurse, I was instructed to use “your name” when writing my Resume. I know that’s not the most pleasant thing to hear, but I knew that it was necessary. In my professional opinion, it’s necessary because the law requires Oncology Nurses to display their titles on their resumes.
When it comes to the job itself, you may be wondering if you should be showing that you are a doctor, a nurse, or even a patient care physician. The bottom line is that you want to convey the professional image that you want to portray.
Now that we’ve covered that, I must also add that there is an element of legal requirement here. If you are “undisclosed” in your professional career, you will want to make sure that you give up any type of mention of your professional title. The bottom line is that you must present yourself as a nurse.
I’m sure that after reading this article, you are feeling much more confident about your oncology nurse resume. Hopefully, I’ve given you some food for thought.
