    Letter Of Recommendation

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for fellow student Danielle Styles, who is passionately looking into a volunteer position at Sierra Providence Eastside Hospital. Danielle is the living proof that any challenge could be overcome as she is gifted with knowledge and citizenship qualities, and always is looking for new ways to thrive and learn in every possible chance that is given to her.

    Danielle is a hard working girl, and has proven to have critical thinking skills as she had the ability to maintain high grades under tremendous amounts of pressure throughout the year with no problem. She always looks for new ways to grow and develop in a more mature level in the Health & Sciences area by taking the time to put in practice the advice and observing techniques that professionals have given her. I have experienced the immense kindness and patience she has with myself as well as everyone around, which is a great quality of a successful nurse.

    Completely and utterly sure that Danielle is one hundred percent capable of any position given to her. Taking her in would benefit the program. She is committed and ready to pursue this life-long experience if given the chance. For more information feel free to contact me via email or telephone.

    Salutations Yvonne,

    I am applying for a position in the Nursing program in response to our meeting in the career center office at San Diego State University (SDSU).

    As I mentioned before, I am pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. The courses I am taking (Advanced Practice Nursing: Clinical Topics and Professional Issues - Pediatric NP and Nursing for Child Health Practicum) involve real projects that allow me to obtain a real working experience as well as learn how the new equipment work. Secondly, the working experience that I have gathered from my Pediatric NP and Nursing for Child Health practicum class, has allowed me to obtain an invaluable knowledge of how the schedule for pediatric nurses goes. During the class I was chosen to be the team leader. This position came along with great challenges and responsibilities including managing work tasks, team communication, weekly & final reports, final case presentations and the dismissal of a patient. I have noticed that Nursing role is an important role in the patient's health and stay at the hospital. I believe I am a good candidate for your program and this internship position will be a perfect opportunity for me to establish myself in an exciting career and future with your medical center. I would like the opportunity for an interview so that I can further express my interest in your medical center.
