Nurses do not always work at hospitals and clinics. The need for nurses in an academic setting is quite high due to many emergencies that can arise in a campus full of little children and young adults.

School nurses are responsible for administering medication to students who may be suffering from a disease. They may also work for the well being of children who do not have any health issues but are prone to diseases simply because they are in an environment where many different types of children thrive.

Dear Mr. Wilson:

As an extremely committed and experienced Registered Nurse with over 7 years’ successful track record in pediatric nursing, I wish to leverage my expertise as a School Nurse at Waterbury High School.

I have been involved in many programs that promoted and protected health status of school going children. I have the knowledge of observing children for both developmental issues and health patterns and able to identify most abnormal health issues in the preliminary assessment. Throughout my professional career, I actively took part in several campus activities which facilitated the elimination of health related obstacles that might affected child’s performance in school.

My enthusiasm for health services administration along with the ability to manage complex students health issues  will help me manage the health services provision at your school. I may be contacted at (000) 148-7502 to provide any further information you may need.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
