Dear Dr. Smith,
With my upcoming graduation from Sharon Regional Health System School of Nursing, I am excited about using my nursing skills to provide patient care at your facility.
As you review my resume, you will note that this is a second career for me. I spent several years as a stylist, where I gained much experience in interacting with the public and providing excellent customer service. These interpersonal skills, combined with my acquired clinical skills, will enable me to make positive contributions to the healthcare team at your facility. I am confident you will determine that my clinical skills meet those established by you. Let me share what Thomas Pepper, RN, MSN, Nursing Instructor, had to say about my performance:
Kristen performed head-to-toe assessments [and] is a very active learner. [She] demonstrates … a good knowledge base of disease process for each client … critical-thinking and problem-solving skills in caring for clients … [and] a caring attitude for all her clients.
Kristen is knowledgeable of the patients’ medical diagnosis. She is able to discuss and make connections to the patients’ past medical history and the current diagnosis. Kristen is able to perform nursing skills from previous classes [and] is also organized and communicates well with staff, patients, and families.
In anticipation that you would like to meet with me, I would be delighted to make myself available. I will call to determine a mutually convenient time. Thank you for your time and consideration.
