7 years’ experience


Address: 12, High Road, Nottingham NG1 2DY
Phone: 0115 9123 456
LinkedIn: @joeblogsnursing


I am a Registered Adult Nurse with 7 years of experience who is passionate about caring. Having worked for an agency for 4 years, I initially gained a very broad range of experience working in hospital wards, the Community and care homes as needed. My more recent position was in a nursing home, delivering a range of elderly care and supervising a busy team. Leading, organising, training and mentoring a team in my current role has allowed me to further develop my oral and written communication skills together with my leadership and team working skills. I have a caring and compassionate attitude and really do love my work.


Nurse | January 2014 – December 2019

Heathfield House Nursing Home, Ayrshire

  • Providing elderly care, nursing care, dementia care and end of life care.
  • Assessing and planning residents’ care requirements.
  • Supervising junior and support staff.
  • Organising workloads, planning rotas.
  • Ensuring effective communication between day and night shifts.
  • Attending MDT meetings.

I left this position due to relocating to Nottingham.

Bank Nurse | January 2010 – December 2013

  • Working in a variety of hospital wards as needed.
  • Completing written documentation to a very high standard.
  • Communicating efficiently and effectively with care teams and with other health care professionals.
  • Supporting clients within the community with complex health needs.

Although the agency did provide me with a lot of work, I would sometimes go for a week or two without any work so I left the position for a more steady role.

How to customise our nursing CV example

This brief guide explains how to write a nursing CV with the help of our template and example content.

Our Nursing CV example works well for a variety of job positions. Here are our top tips on customising this CV template to get the best use out of it:

Write a summary

You’ll see a very short section under your name for writing a summary (or ‘personal statement’). This really should be ‘you in a few words’. Take care to avoid fluffy vague statements. If you do write ‘proven results’ or something similar, your prospective employer will want to see evidence of this later in the CV. You can add evidence into your work history section underneath the relevant job roles.

Edit or add in sections to suit you

Don’t feel like the sections we have given you are the only sections you can have. Although you must include certain sections – contact info, experience and qualifications for example (as your would-be employers will be looking for them) – you can add additional sections to meet your needs. For example, whilst the sample info has been tailored to an Adult nurse, a Marketing Manager might want to add a results section rather than include results information within individual role details. This can really help bring your best results to your prospective employer’s attention.

Keep the fundamentals

You can completely tailor the CV or Résumé to work for you, but do make sure you include the basics that employers want to see and make sure these are obvious so your employer doesn’t have to go hunting for them. If you make employers jump through hoops, they will simply move on to the next CV.

Stay positive

Never, ever speak badly of previous employers on your CV, in your covering letter or in an interview. Phrase any negatives as a positive. For example, if you want to leave your current role because your employer is making you work 60 hours a week, you could write “I am looking for another position where the hours are roughly 40 a week aside from any necessary overtime so that I can achieve a better work-life balance”.

If there are serious negatives within your current role – for example, your employer is breaking the law – it is better to focus on other positive aspects of a new role during the recruitment process, such as ‘a new challenge’ or ‘increased responsibility’.

Show desirable skills

Start by focusing on the skills mentioned in the job advert and give examples of how you have built/used those (this might be through work, studies or even hobbies).

If the job advert doesn’t offer much detail, review job descriptions for ideas of which skills are most desirable. For example:

Drum up some work experience

If you don’t have much experience to put down on your CV template, why not do some voluntary work? Check out our guide to see how effective voluntary work can be for your career. You can learn new skills, interact with customers, and build upon your existing work experience. Voluntary work is especially important for recent school leavers who are staring at a blank CV.

Write a cover letter

Make sure you write a carefully tailored cover letter to go with your CV. This should pick out the requirements of the job from the job advertisement and demonstrate how you meet those requirements. Find out more on writing a winning cover letter here.

We hope you are successful in your job hunt using our nursing CV example – and we’d love to hear how you got on!
