Senior Administrator
Sharp Memorial Hospital

San Diego, CA 24877


Dear Dr. Smith:

Per your advertisement in the California Republic, I am writing to state my keen interest in the New Grad RN program at Sharp Memorial Hospital. I will be graduating in nursing from Ryerson University this month and believe my educational background and work experiences will be extremely beneficial to your facility. As your hospital has been designated as the Best Hospital of the city, this speaks a lot regarding the quality of patient care you offer.

As noted on my resume, I obtained excellent skills in patient evaluation during my education and nursing internship. I have a demonstrated ability to provide patient care that focuses on all facets of a person’s physical, emotional, physical, spiritual, and psychosocial condition. My experience as a student nurse intern has given me the confidence and skills to care for multicultural patients efficiently. Besides, I feel comfortable in working together with other healthcare professionals.

I am enthusiastic regarding this position because I understand that good patient care requires a solid foundation in nursing practice, prioritization and good communication skills. These capabilities, coupled with my sympathy, staying power, and patient support expertise, are what I can offer at Sharp Memorial Hospital as a new graduate RN.

My application can only tell you a little about my enthusiasm. I would be grateful for an opportunity to meet with you at the time of your convenience to further discuss my background, qualifications, and interests. I will follow-up with you in the week of February 20. In the interim, I can be reached at (009) 877-8999 or via email at jonna @ email . com.

Thank you for your time and consideration; I anticipate hearing from you shortly.
