Pediatric Nurse Resume Objective Example

Pediatric Nurses focus on nursing care for children and babies. They may work in a doctor’s office alongside a pediatrician or in a hospital or health care organization. Having strong objectives on your resume shows prospective employers how your skills contribute to the team.

What The Pediatric Nurse Resume Objective Should Tell Prospective Employers

A Pediatric Nurse is a specialty that can require a variety of specializations for nurses who work exclusively with newborns or in an emergency room. To work as a nurse, a license is required, and some hospitals or offices may also give preference to candidates with a BSN (Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing). A CPN (Certified Pediatric Nurse) is another valuable certification, although certification requirements vary by state. Be sure to highlight your certifications or credentials in your objectives to make yourself stand out to hiring managers.

Sample Pediatric Nurse Resume Objectives

It’s always a good idea to thoroughly vet the job description and customize your resume to the job you are applying for. Using the name of the hospital or doctor’s office also shows that you are interested in that particular position. Use the examples below and customize them for your resume:

1. Focused and compassionate RN with four years of experience, the last 18 months in a Pediatric NICU, providing treatment to newborns while communicating and comforting parents.

2. Seeking a position as a Pediatric Nurse for ABC Healthcare that will use exceptional communication skills and extensive credentials, including a CPN.
