An ideal cover letter for an RPN position in Canada must not be long than a single page and it must serve the following purpose:

• Convey your interest in the position and some knowledge regarding the policies that govern the hiring organization

• Demonstrate your potential and strengths in the field

• Showcase your relevant experience enlisting your core competencies developed through hands on practice

• Highlight your current, valid and applicable certifications in the field of nursing

The manner in which you begin and end your cover letter is what helps in setting you apart. Do not settle for a simple starting like I saw your ad in… or I wish to apply for..

To make your letter stand out, own the profession and begin with an expression of ownership.
