When creating a cover letter for practical nurse resume, communicate your enthusiasm, expertise level and aptitude to carry out complex medical procedures under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or a general practitioner.
All practical nurse cover letters are supposed to give details regarding what you can bring to the job.
Do not mention what you are expecting from the employer because it may demote your candidacy. You may discuss your expectations later in the interview.

Dear Mr. Doe:
After reading your job posting for a Licensed Practical Nurse in detail, I decided to write to you because your job description closely complements my career goals, experience, and skills.
I have a successful track record of assisting doctors and registered nurses in specialized medical and minor surgical procedures. Taking vital signs, managing prescribed medications, calculating dosages and performing emergency procedures are my areas of expertise. Besides nursing duties, I am able to conduct patient and family teaching, answer and forward telephone calls and schedule medical appointments.
My ability to develop good relationships with patients and a genuine interest in the well being of those under my care would allow me to make a significant contribution to the well-being of your patients. My enclosed resume details my specific qualifications and skills that are required by Houston Rehabilitation Center.
As an experienced Practical Nurse, I’d like to speak with you to discuss this in detail. Please call me at (000) 999-9009 to set up an interview at the time of your convenience. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
