You need to do a lot of research before writing a cover letter for LPN resume. Go through the popular 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 exclusive skills as your marketing tool.
Although it is an established fact that a cover letter’s purpose is to obtain an interview, however you need to ask for interview explicitly in your cover letter. Employers receive many straight forward 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.
