Nurse (Intensive Care Unit) Resume

There are several important units in a hospital, and they are divided on the basis of the type of treatment that takes place in those units. One of the most important unit of a hospital is ICU (Intensive Care Unit). Those patients, whose medical condition is critical, are admitted in these units. Among the several medical professionals present in a hospital, an ICU Nurse plays an important role in taking care of the patients admitted in the ICU Unit.

The job profile of an ICU Nurse differs from the job profile of the general nurses. They are responsible to continuously monitor the health condition of a patient, and inform the doctor immediately, if the health condition of the patient goes down. It is possible that the condition of the patient would become severe, if not attended properly. Therefore, it can be said that these nurses need to be quick, and able to react in the life threatening situation of a patient. Thus, these nurses differ from the general nurses, as their job profile holds high responsibilities. These nurses are found in different critical units such as Neonatal ICU, cardiac intensive care unit, Pediatric ICU, and Intensive care units.

You might be thinking how to become a Intensive Care Unit Nurse. In order to apply for this position, you should have a nursing degree, and a well prepared intensive care unit resume. Moreover you also need to possess an RN License, in order to join the position of a Nurse. Apart from the degree and qualification, you should also have some essential skills required to fulfill the responsibilities of this job position. You should have wide knowledge of medicine and nursing, must have keen eye to observe the regular health condition of the patient, and good communication skills to communicate effectively and empathetically with the patients as well their caregivers.

A resume also plays an important role when you are applying for the position of an ICU Nurse. You resume should be written effectively, and it would possess all your skills and experiences related to the job profile. You can refer to some samples, and try to craft a resume that serves your purpose.
