Writing a good CV

Your curriculum vitae/resume will play a major part in your personal profile that we will submit to our client hospitals on your behalf.  Take this opportunity to tell the hospitals about your education, skills and experience.

Please note the following:

Start with your Title (Ms/Mr etc), full name and contact details.

Do not include your age, religion or personal interests.

 

  • Make sure you include all necessary dates. It is preferable to commence your employment history with your current or most recent employment first.  Remember to describe the size of the hospital, whether it is public or private, the number of beds and the specialities it covers.
  • Under “Additional Courses” please include any study days, staff nurse development days, or other courses you may think are relevant.
  • In “Duties”, please describe the type of patient diagnoses and your main responsibilities on the ward where you work or previously worked. Include any information on how often you took charge and whether you supervised any student nurses.
  • Under Personal Profile please write a short personal paragraph to include why you enjoy nursing and what aspects of nursing most appeals to you, your future aspirations and why you would like to work in the country where you are applying and what you think you will gain from the experience.
