Nurses are an integral part of any healthcare setting as they assist both patients and doctors in their respective needs. Apart from managing care plans and providing direct patient care, nurses are a sign of comfort for patients as they depict hope. The loss of a nurse from an establishment is quite a loss as healthcare facilities usually become comfortable with working with routine nurses.

A nurse leaving one organization to join another usually needs a recommendation letter in order to assist with the hiring process in the next facility. Let us see how one is written.

To Whom It May Concern

It is a pleasure to recommend Helen Green to ABC Clinic for the position of Registered Nurse. I have been supervising Helen for almost seven years at Sava Senior Care Clinic and found her an extremely dedicated nursing professional. Apart from being an absolute joy to work with, her work is detail-oriented and meticulous as she enjoys taking challenges.

Helen possess a profound expertise in a clinical setting; able to handle a high volume of work which is eminent in clinical practices. She is well organized and is fully capable of providing direct patient care on a multitude of diseases. Over the years that she has worked with us, she demonstrated excellent knowledge and competence in advanced practice nursing and has on a number of occasions collaborated with interdisciplinary teams to ensure smooth working of the facility.

Helen is well equipped to take charge of a big healthcare facility. Her compassionate nature, strong attention to detail and excellent patient care skills would be very beneficial for your organization. I strongly suggest making Helen a member of your healthcare team at ABC Clinic. While we all are cheerless to see her leave our clinic, we all wish her the very best of luck in all her future endeavors.
