General Overview

Working primarily under the supervision of registered nurses and doctors, Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) provide direct patient care. They assess patients’ condition, create medical plans and ensure proper implementation of plans in order to address patients’ medical needs.

Depending on which state you are working in, you may be required to perform different duties. For instance, in some states, an LPN can perform as many duties as a registered nurse; this may include administering intravenous medications; in other states, she may be limited to handling just bedside care for patients.

If you have just given an interview for an LPN’s position, you may want to improve your employment chances by writing a thank you note to the interviewer. Here is how you can do this.

Nursing Manager
Peak Healthcare Services

Dear Mr. Hackman:

Thank you for taking out the time to interview me for the position of a Licensed Practical Nurse yesterday. The valuable information that you provided me with during the interview has gone a long way in making me appreciate Peak Healthcare Services’ plans for the future and my prospective role in it.

As a certified licensed practical nurse with five years of experience in surgery, I am confident that you will find my skills pertinent to the healthcare values that you explained to me during the interview. My prime interest lies in providing support for Peak Healthcare Services’ newly established surgical unit which I am confident will benefit much from my surgical background.

Furthermore, I deem myself a strong candidate for this position primarily because I am able work in different departments. In a supervisory role, I have proven myself to work cohesively to promote and support the work of certified nursing assistants and provide them with mentorship that they require at this stage of their career.

With my compassionate nature, I believe that I am an exceptional match for this LPN position. I anticipate that I would be given another opportunity to discuss my suitability during the second interview. Please call me at (777) 777-7777 if you require any more information from me.
