ATTN: Nurse Manager

Dear Sir or Madam:

I am responding to the current job opening for a Registered Nurse on your unit. I would very much like to be a part of your team and I feel that my education and clinical experience would be a good fit for what you are looking for.

I graduated from the Nursing Program at Trident Technical College in April, 2013. This program offers a diverse clinical experience along with high academic standards. I had the opportunity to complete my clinical rotations in a wide variety of places and had exposure to a broad range of medical situations. I have five months experience working in a PACU setting, and fifteen months at an acute transitional care and long term facility. It is from working with the older generation that I developed a love for our older generation and in end of life care.

I believe the following highlights from my resume demonstrate my unique qualifications for the position:

Interpersonal Skills: I am an outstanding communicator noted for my ability to pick up on verbal and nonverbal cues. I am naturally caring and empathetic and have always been driven to help others.
Problem-Solving: I am a quick-thinker with a proven ability to multitask, organize, plan, and manage time properly.
I have recently finished my BSN at USC Upstate, Mary Black School of Nursing. I plan to continue my nursing education in order to pursue my love for geriatrics and end of life care.
I am a fast learner, a hard worker, and I am driven to succeed in the nursing field. I am detail oriented and have strong decision-making abilities. I am also a highly dependable and honest team player.

I have attached my resume for your consideration, and would appreciate the opportunity to schedule a meeting with you to discuss the position and the value I could add to your company.

Sincerely yours,

My personal philosophy for nursing is centered on compassionate and educated care. I believe each patient is unique, important, and deserving of compassion in their care. I believe their families are important to the patient’s health, and should be included in their care. I believe I have an obligation to continue to learn and grow as a nurse in order to give the best care possible. Balancing work with family, personal, and spiritual needs is important to me. Taking care of myself physically by eating healthy and exercising is a way I show by example that good health takes positive action. I went into nursing because of a love for helping and teaching people, and for how the body works.
