Hospice nurses provide patients with compassionate care rather than curing them. If you are a hospice nurse looking for a job in this arena, you may need to understand that your job is more demanding than a regular nurse’s.

The ability to handle difficult situations while providing exceptional medical care is something that you will need to prove as a hospice nurse.

As a cover letter and resume for hospice nurse position is mandatory for every job application, you need to know how to write an effective cover letter. See the sample below to get a better idea.

Dear Mr. Jenkins:

I saw your advertisement on your website for the vacant position of a Hospice Nurse at Family Health Hospital. As a high-energy nurse with over five years’ experience working in hospice setting, I am sure I can prove to be an asset to your facility.

For some people working in a hospice is depressing work – for me, it is a pure hope as this role provides an individual with unlimited opportunities to help people lead dignified lives. I possess exceptional assessment skills that assist me in assessing patients’ conditions and formulating appropriate care plans. Additionally, I have the ability to provide trusted, compassionate and spiritual care to patients in order to make their lives happy and free of pain as much as possible.

I am looking forward to meeting with you in person in order to discuss this Hospice Nurse position in detail. I’ll call your office next week to arrange a mutually comfortable time to meet. If you need any additional information, please call me at (122) 001-1221.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
