Congrats on passing! The internet is your friend for helping you write a resume. Use a search engine and find articles on writing a resume for a new LPN. There is a lot of help online for you.

Your experience in long term care is some thing that you need to highlight in your resume.

When finished, it should be 1 page with sections for your career objective, your work history, your education ( post highschool), any awards or honors you have received and contact information.

Look at the key words that are present in the job description you are applying for and make sure those words are in your resume. If they say they are looking for a compassionate caregiver, make sure you list “compassionate giver” in your resume. Etc.

It should be easy to read, not crowded. If you are not good at using a word program such as Word or pages, find a friend who is. Triple check it for spelling and grammar. Have a separate page for references ready to give, should the recruiter ask for them. Make sure you have the permission of the people you use for references.

Print your resume on good paper, not the cheap stuff most of us have in our home printers. No fancy fonts, no colors other than black ink.
Good luck!
