Dear Ms. Doe:

Your hospital’s recent advertisement for an operating room staff nurse piqued my interest. After reading your job description and requirements about the position, I am certain that I would be an exceptional addition to your medical team. Along with my BS degree in Nursing, 1 year experience as a registered nurse and license to practice in the State of New Jersey, I have the ability to provide high quality patient care and contribute to your bottom line.

During my tenure as an operating room staff nurse at St. Louis Hospital, I was responsible for the preoperative care of pediatric and adult surgical patients. I have developed strong skills in delivering compassionate care to patients through the use of the nursing procedure as reflected in standards of clinical practice. In addition, I have a demonstrated competency to assist doctors in simple surgical and endoscopic surgical procedures.

My enclosed resume highlights my nursing expertise and special accomplishments. As an enthusiastic candidate, I will like to discuss the position of Operating Room Staff Nurse in detail. I will contact you next week for follow up. In the interim, I can be reached at [Your Contact #]. Thank you for your time and consideration.
