Dear Dr. Cartrip:

I am very excited at the prospect of working for The St. Andrews Village as a Nurse Aide. I have been following the hospital’s reputation and progress for a long time now and was contended to see this job opening. My attached resume will give you an idea of how my experience can prove to be an asset to your hospital.

My experience as a nursing assistant is very broad – to say the least; I have worked in the comparable capacities for over eight years and known for performing the following duties with diligence:

– Attending to patients’ needs pertaining to grooming and mobility
– Changing beds and ensuring general hygiene conditions
– Checking patients’ vitals and reporting results to the nursing staff
– Carrying out physical and diagnostic tests
– Good knowledge of infection control procedures

I look forward to putting my skills and capabilities to a dynamic and growing healthcare setting like St Andrews Village and would welcome the opportunity to meet with you in order to discuss my qualifications further. I will call you by the end of this week to follow up on my job application. Also, I may be reached at (000) 000-9999 in case any further information is required.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
