Being done with an interview for Registered Nurse position is not really being done at all. There is one more step that you need to cover before you can sit back and wait for the company to call you tell you that you have been hired – or not. And that step is to write a thank you / follow-up letter.
Prospective employers that receive thank you or follow up letters are provided with a chance to check out the applicant’s merits again. Since these letters are designed to give employers a glimpse of what the candidate can do for them once again, they serve as well as cover letters do – sometimes even better. And there really is no harm in writing a thank you or a follow up letter.
The contents of a letter of this type are:
• Reference to the RN interview, preferably with a date or day
• Reiteration of skills to do the nursing job
• Saying thank you for the employer’s time in interviewing you
Put all these in a letter and you have yourself a thank you / follow up letter. To follow up on an interview conducted for an RN (registered nurse) position, take a peek at the following sample:

Dear Mr. Donovan:
Thank you for taking out time from a very busy schedule to interviewing me for a Registered Nurse position at Trinity Family Hospital. The thirty minute interview was extremely insightful and I am now more excited than ever at the opportunity to work for your hospital.
As a dedicated nursing professional with over 12 years of experience in working for hospitals and hospices, I find myself fitting in very well at Trinity Family Hospital. It is not just my ability to design nursing plans from scratch but the fact that I can design them according to each patient’s specific medical needs, which sets me apart from the rest of the crowd. My ability to interpret patient information and make critical decisions has been commended by my supervisors a number of times.
I look forward to meeting with you again in a second interview so that we can discuss your needs and the possibility of my contributing to your hospital in an RN role. I believe that the next interview will be even more insightful.
Thank you once again for your time and consideration.
Gwen Stefani, RN
