Dear Mr. Hans:

As a seasoned operating room nurse, I am eager to work for Minnesota One Health. My professional nursing experience and education will provide your department with a proficient RN. I am extremely interested in contributing as a part of the healthcare team at Minnesota One Health.

I am fully aware of the various aspects of preparing patients for surgeries, laying out instruments and operating equipment required during surgical procedures and providing education to patients. My meticulousness and focused personality makes it easy for me manage the various demands of a busy operating room.

Some of my major accomplishments as an operating room RN include:

  • Successfully resuscitating a patient who had gone through a stroke while under anesthesia, by recognizing signs of distress just in time.
  • Implemented a series of patient education programs that increased patient awareness regarding surgical procedures.
  • Introduced a patient history obtainment system, which increased nursing care plan development efficiency by 85%.

While my achievements as a dedicated operating room RN speak volumes for my professionalism, I am positive that an in-person meeting will be more fruitful. I will contact your office after few days to ask for a convenient time. Until then, please do not hesitate to contact me at (000) 142-1210 if you need any further information.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
