A Nursing Career Action Plan

After 3 years of difficult courses and clinicals in the Nursing Program, senior year could not have happened any sooner! The key to successfully preparing for life after graduation is to follow the Nursing Career Action Plan.

  1. Develop your Professional Skills
    Use this year to polish your résumé and develop essential skills such as professional writing, interviewing, and networking techniques. Stop by the Center for Career Development for a walk-in résumé critique Mondays to Fridays 10AM-5PM in the Wilbur Cross Building Room 201 for a one-on-one critique with a Career Intern.
  2. Utilize resources found at the Center for Career Development
    Visit the Center for Career Development to find all of our resources and programs available to UConn nursing students. Attend CCD workshops, panels, information sessions, and career fairs to learn more about career opportunities in nursing.
  3. Explore your options
    Whether it’s applying to graduate programs or finding career opportunities in hospitals, meet with a Career Counselor to discuss your options after graduation and develop an action plan to get prepared for your future career or graduate program. If you are interested in learning more about career opportunities, research online to find opportunities in nursing that are right for you. Visit the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s Career Resource Center.
  4. Attend a UConn Nursing Career Fair
    This is the perfect opportunity to network with employers and recruiters from over 20 companies and organizations.
