Dear Ms. Lee:
Please accept this letter and attached resume as an application for Registered Nurse position in Emergency Services Unit of St. Peter’s Royal Hospital. I am a dedicated and experienced nurse with current Texas license and have a strong commitment to providing exceptional patient care.
As an accomplished and ethical nursing professional, I worked as an integral part of the passionate nursing team of Texas Hospital Emergency Department. That was a level one healthcare center with 25 ER beds, two trauma bays and over 80,000 ER visits annually. I got extreme satisfaction in this role and am ready to take more responsibilities. My work in the Emergency Unit has developed my ability to multitask and deal efficiently with priorities while delivering excellent patient care.
Upon graduating from the University of Texas, I was chosen to take part in a 12-month graduate program at Houston Hospital. This experience provided me knowledge of a wide range of disciplines including oncology, emergency handling, and neonatal care. Also, this experience polished my skills in admissions, evaluation, treatment, and education of patients. Moreover, I have excellent knowledge of Occupational Health and Safety issues.
Besides nursing expertise, I have exceptional interpersonal and communication skills when dealing with patients and their families and other team members, and great talent in obtaining patient’s history, charting and other documents.
I am dedicated to providing care to patients of all ages, and I think I would be the just right candidate for this role. I look forward to discussing my appropriateness for the position with you further in a meeting. I can be reached at (000) 754-1254 to set up a mutually convenient meeting time.
Thank you for your time and consideration. My resume is attached for your review.
