In 2018, more than one million Americans were hired by the U.S. government as nurses, according to the American Medical Association.
The average age of nurses is 50, and the average tenure is less than two years.
Many are paid on a sliding scale based on their years of experience.
But a resume is essential to getting a job, particularly for those with less than a high school diploma, according a recent article in the Washington Post.
“I would definitely recommend a resume,” said Jessica L. Stokes, a registered nurse in Brooklyn, New York, who was hired by an insurance company last year and has since been offered a job.
Dr. Leshy K. Brown, a medical assistant at a hospital in the Houston area who was fired in October for having no medical background, also said he’s considering a resume.
He said he can’t find one that is simple and straightforward.
“I don’t have a problem with a resume at all,” said Dr. Brown.
“I can’t even remember a time when I wasn’t looking for a resume.”
Dr Brown is also working on a resume that includes an interview question and a summary of what he did in his previous job.
The answers are posted online and the resume has a list of skills that he’s learned from previous jobs.
The New York Times reported last week that more than 200 nursing and other health care jobs in the United States have gone unfilled in recent years because of the decline in the number of graduates who graduate from high school.
Some employers don’t want to hire people who have no background in their fields.
Lets see if we can find a resume for them!
“If you’re not looking for anything specific, and just want to be hired, there’s no way to find a job,” Dr. Stocks said.
