Sample Letter of Recommendation for a Staff Nurse


February 24, 2016

To Whom It May Concern

I am writing to recommend Gerry Martin who has worked as Staff Nurse at Indiana State Hospital for 3 years. When she was hired as a student nurse in 2012, she proved herself as an efficient and methodical individual who was able to remain calm and active throughout duty hours.

Gerry effectively provided direct patient care by administering medication, providing health education, assisting with diagnostic tests and ensuring that patients are comfortable at all time. She is competent at recording patients’ vitals and observing changes in conditions.

Her greatest asset is her responsible attitude along with her ability to work under pressure in cases of emergencies. During the time that Gerry spent at our hospital, she has been mostly assigned to the cases that require critical care as her emotional and physical prowess is a force to reckon with. She can independently devise patient care plans in accordance to patients’ medical assessments and able to implement them appropriately. During her service, Gerry had been chosen to work in many community outreach programs owing to her dependability and hard work.

I am confident that Gerry will be an asset to any healthcare facility she works with. She has the stamina, knowledge and expertise to continue to grow and become even more effective as a Staff Nurse.
