Your cover letter for a pediatric nurse resume tells the employer about your key skills and highlights the aspects of your nursing experience that make you a good contender for pediatric nurse position. Your Pediatric Nurse cover letter can clarify things that your resume can’t.

If you are an entry level candidate or have large gaps in your jobs or changing your career, a covering letter can successfully explain situation and convince the hiring manager to call you for an interview.

It is very important to make a short yet brief cover letter. Your letter must never go beyond a single page, and it’s best practice to make three paragraphs and keep it well under a full page.
