Mr. Derrick Felix
HR Manager
C.T Hospital
82 Rolex Sq
Augusta, GA 35001


Dear Mr. Felix:

Do you seek a highly experienced and professionally trained nurse midwife who is dedicated to the profession and remains up to date in knowledge of latest GYNN/OB practices?

If so, you will definitely be interested in my qualifications. I bring a track record of providing patients with high quality antepartum, interpartum and postpartum care.

Serving as a nurse midwife for the past 5+ years, I attained expertise in caring for mothers and newborns and consulting appropriately with senior staff in case of any complication. Working in the busy OB/GYN department has polished my skills of task prioritization, recordkeeping and handling of emergency cases. I believe the C.T hospital could utilize my skills in gynecological services and extensive knowledge of state issued guidelines governing the practice of midwifery.

I would like to meet with you in order to gain a deeper insight into your needs and to establish ways in which my profile complements your job description. I intend to make a follow-up call after a few days to answer any queries you may have regarding my qualifications and to set up a convenient interview date and time. If you need to speak earlier, please feel free to call me at (008) 333-2222.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
