Certified Nursing Assistant Interview Corner: Building the Resume that Lists Clinical Work Perfectly


In order to be a successful CNA candidate, you need a comprehensive resume that sets you apart from the competition. It should show pride in your career and your accomplishments, whether you are fresh out of school and still awaiting your certification or are an experienced veteran.

In one or two pages, you need to summarize your education, experience and qualifications in a way that marks you as a serious profession – and as the right person for the job at hand.

Basics to Include

Your resume is the selling point that will get you in the door when it comes to your next great CNA job. Make it your own, highlighting your unique achievements and capabilities. But for starters, it’s essential to include:

Contact Information

Provide your full name, home address, phone number and email address. Your email address should sound professional. Get a new one if necessary. If you add a number to it, avoid using your birth year.


This should be no longer than one or two concise sentences that describe your career goal and provide a capsulized description of yourself. You might want to say something like, “Experienced, reliable CNA with excellent patient care and documentation skills, seeking a position in geriatric care. Adept at working in a variety of nursing home and rehabilitation settings.”

Skills and Qualifications

A key role of a CNA is to measure and record fundamental patient information. In this section of your resume, you may want to include such qualifications as CPR and first aid certifications, as well as your expertise in patient and environmental safety, vital signs and observation, medical terminology, HIPAA and privacy, communications, and your willingness to adapt and master new technology and standards.


Beginning with your CAN training, list each school you attended, in reverse chronological order. Include certifications and the dates they were awarded. If you have not yet taken your CNA exam or are awaiting the results, simply list “certification in process.”


If you’re a new CNA, list your clinical and extern experience and dates, with a brief description of the specific patient care you provided. If you are more experienced, list your job with dates and a short summary of duties. Include any noteworthy accomplishments, such as “Safety Committee Member” or “CNA of the Month.”
