Dear Mr. Doe:

I am responding to your job advertisement for the position of Nursing Assistant at Samaritan Medical Center, as posted on your website. I have several years of experience in the nursing assistance field and currently seeking an opportunity to leverage my skills to contribute to the well-being of the residents.

My several years’ hands-on experience has helped me develop lots of capabilities in personal care and hygiene. I am highly skilled in escorting patients to and from appointments, taking vital signs and reporting any change to the registered nurse and helping the doctor with physical and diagnostic examinations. Besides, I have in-depth knowledge of safety and infection control practices and have a profound ability to use computer systems. My attached resume contains more details of my talents, work history and individual tasks which I performed at my previous jobs.

As a compassionate and experienced nursing assistant, I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you regarding my qualifications and your requirements in more detail. I will contact you during the first week of November to set up a time of interview. Alternately, I can be reached at the above mentioned phone number or e-mail address.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to meeting with you soon.
