Please accept tis letter and attached resume as an application for Registered Nurse position at St Andrew’s Royal Hospital’s Emergency Services Unit. I am a very experienced nurse with present Texas registration and have a zeal for nursing and patient care.

This was a level one healthcare centre with 25 ER beds, 2 trauma bays and over 80,000 ER visits per annum. I got extreme satisfaction in this role and am ready to take more responsibilities. My work in the Emergency Unit has developed the 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. In addition, 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.
