Dear Mr. Hannibal:
As a patient service-focused and energetic Registered Nurse, I would like to be considered for a potential nursing position with Nashville Healthcare. With 9+ years of progressively responsible nursing experience, I am confident that I will be a positive addition to your healthcare staff.
As you will note on my enclosed resume, I have demonstrated competencies in assessment, treatment, and care for the newborn to the geriatric patients. I have had the opportunity to work on different levels of nursing during my long career. Moreover, I have current BLS and ACLS certification and possess both long-term acute and rehabilitation experience which makes me a good contender for various nursing positions. Furthermore, I can assess the need for spiritual care and moral support since I have worked in a hospice as well.
I am very interested in meeting with you to further discuss my credentials and the corresponding benefits that I could offer to your hospital. My resume is enclosed with this letter which will provide you with comprehensive information about my skills, experience, and education.
Thank you for your kind consideration.
