Dear Mr. Hannibal:

As a patient focused and energetic LPN, I would like to be considered for a potential nursing position with Nashville Healthcare which I know to be a leader in providing healthcare services in Rio Rancho. With nine years’ progressive nursing experience, I am confident that I will be a positive addition to your healthcare staff.

As you will note on my enclosed resume, I have demonstrated competencies in assessment, treatment and care for the new born to the geriatric patients. I have had the opportunity to work on different levels of nursing during my long career. Moreover, I have current BLS and ACLS certification and possess both long term acute and rehabilitation experience which makes me a good contender for various nursing positions. Furthermore, I have the capability to assess the need for spiritual care and moral support since I have worked in a hospice as well.

I am very interested in meeting with you to further discuss my credentials and the corresponding benefits that I could offer to your hospital. My resume is enclosed with this letter which will provide you with comprehensive information about my skills, experience and education.

Thank you in anticipation of your kind consideration.


Sincerely yours,
