A cover letter is a very important part of your job application for a graduate LPN. You need to do a lot of research before writing a cover letter for an LPN resume.
Go through the popular LPN cover letter formats, view some samples, and visit job requirements issued by various healthcare organizations for the LPN position.
Consider what skills, competencies, and traits you possess that most candidates do not. Use these particular skills as your marketing tool.
Although it is a fact that a cover letter’s purpose is to obtain an interview, however, you need to ask for a meeting explicitly in your cover letter.
Employers receive many straightforward cover letters ending with a call for action. To compete with these, you also need to be explicit in stating that you need an interview.
