As soon as a nurse finishes her education or as a student, she need to gain some hands-on experience as a Nursing Intern, a position where she will have to work her way up to the standards of real time nursing. Nursing interns are responsible for assessing patients as they are brought into a hospital and document findings apart from managing other nursing functions.

A nursing intern who has just passed out from training school and is looking for a job will need to ensure that she puts in skills that are relevant to her job specifically when writing a cover letter. Let us see how this might be done.

Mr. Russell Clegg
Nursing Manager
Family Health Hospital
67 Valley Road
Mayfield, KY 67911


Dear Mr. Clegg:

I recently passed out of the Kentucky Nursing School and have heard that there is an opportunity for a Nursing Intern at Family Health Hospital. I am submitting this letter and resume as an application for this position. My goal is to obtain a position where I can employ my training in nursing practices in order to assist doctors with managing their patients in a professional manner.

As indicated in my resume, I have special interest in diabetes care and have had some exposure to it during my rotation at the Good Samaritan Clinic. During nursing training, I have developed expertise in the nursing profession relating to quality patient care and obtained extensive knowledge of creating and implementing individualized patient care plans. I am presently in the process of acquiring certification in CPR and would at some point like to be certified as a Heartsaver AED. My enclosed resume will provide you with complete details of my education, certification, qualifications and skills.

I am very excited at the prospect of joining Family Health Hospital as a nursing intern. I would welcome the opportunity to meet you in person so we can discuss the possibility of my working at this position in detail. I will contact you next week to follow-up and can be reached at (008) 888-8888 if you need any further information from me. Thank you for taking out the time and reviewing my application.
