Feeling complacent after giving a nursing interview is probably not the best thing to do.
Even if the interview went well and you feel that your chances of employment are high, you cannot just leave it at that.
A follow-up email can double your chances of the job.
Let’s face it; you may not be the only one who aced the interview.
You may have good competition just waiting to pounce on the slightest opportunity, so it is up to you to do something extra.
A follow-up email will make sure that a prospective employer is given an eyeful of your candidature once again.
It will also provide you with an opportunity to reiterate both your interest in the job and your ability to perform outlined duties.
Below is an example of a follow-up email written by a person who has recently appeared for an interview for the nurse position. Take a look!

Email Subject: Registered Nurse Interview Follow Up
Dear Ms. Pollock:
Thank you for interviewing me for the position of Registered Nurse at Family Health Hospital. The possibility of joining the hospital is even more exciting now that I have had insightful information about the various aspects of the system that it runs on and I would consider it the opportunity of a lifetime to work here.
During the interview, you mentioned that your new pediatrics wing would be functional soon. I am very excited at the prospect of working in this new wing as I believe that I have the necessary experience with children that will help me work well here. As a dedicated nursing professional with 8+ years of experience to my name, I am well equipped to start a new wing by my knowledge and ability to perform hard work both in trauma and general healthcare.
You provided me with a clear picture of this position, and I am now more than ever confident that my background as a nursing professional is well-aligned with your requirements. This meeting has reinforced my enthusiasm for this job, and I am now looking forward to having a one-on-one with you at the second interview.
Please feel free to call me at (000) 478-8297 if you need further information from me that may help augment my candidature for this position.
Thank you for your consideration.
Helen Berber, RN
