We want you to showcase all your unique strengths, abilities and training and what makes you a great uPaged nurse! The Skills and Education section of your profile is where you add the skills you’re competent in, and certification if applicable. These are the skills teams leaders will refer to when allocating staff, so you must accurately represent your scope of practice to match you, the right nurse, with the right patients and the right job.
