How to find Nurse Practitioners with Boolean search strings

Nurse Practitioners have advanced skills and knowledge in patient care. Use Boolean logic on Google to find resumes and profiles of these professionals. Modify our search strings examples to create your own commands.


Generic search string to find Nurse Practitioners

Build search according to your needs:

  • -job -jobs -sample -examples, to avoid irrelevant results
  • (intitle:resume OR intitle:cv), to discover candidates’ online resumes or CVs
  • (“nurse practitioner” OR NP), to cover variations of the same job title

Here’s an example of a generic search string that you can further modify to find resumes:

(intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) (“nurse practitioner” OR NP) -job -jobs -sample -examples

When running this command using Google, you will get results that include the words “resume” or “CV” in the page title. Adding variations of titles will provide a larger number of relevant results. And, excluding more terms reduces false positives.


Searching for profiles of Nurse Practitioners

Use Boolean search on Google to discover Nurse Practitioners in their social profiles. Include the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • site:meetup.com “nurse practitioner” “member since”
  • site:allnurses.com “most active topics” (“nurse practitioner” OR NP)
  • site:facebook.com inurl:about “nurse practitioner” -intitle:group -intitle:association

If you get the same type of irrelevant results with each search, use the NOT (“-”) operator to exclude those results. Add more criteria in your search to find profiles that better match your requirements.

When sourcing EU candidates, please refer to guidance on using social media for recruiting and collecting candidate information as per the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR.
