Dear Michael,

I read Coral’s vacancy for the Registered Nurse position on _____. As an experienced Registered Nurse with a Master’s Degree in the field, I believe my qualifications and knowledge make me the ideal candidate.

Aside from my qualifications, I have worked as an RN for 12 years. This experience includes a spell of five years at St Luke’s Hospital where I became acquainted with the unique challenges, and fast-paced working environment, of an enormous medical facility. I have been impressed by Coral’s reputation as one of the top emergency care services in the city, and believe my attention to detail and calm, patient bedside manner, will make a valuable addition to your team.

In my present role as a Registered Nurse, I evaluate the medical conditions of 30+ patients daily, and I am also in charge of a team of 15 nursing staff. To cope with the busy schedule, I devised and directed a rotational system to ensure all patients were cared for. By coordinating the staff, it was possible to ensure that every patient was attended to in quick time, and my team was also able to take ample rest time to recharge their batteries.

During my career to date, I have been recognised as an ambitious, dedicated, reliable, and trustworthy individual. Prior to my tenure at St. Luke’s, I worked as an Assistant Nurse at the Johnson Clinic. It was here where I initially learned how to implement clinical duties expertly. During my employment at the Clinic, I was praised for the way in which I handled difficult situations with patients and their loved ones.

It is my belief that I am a strong candidate for the Registered Nurse role at Coral. I am confident that I will thrive in your hospital’s working environment as it is my nature to respond positively to pressure. I greatly appreciate your consideration of my application and look forward to hearing from you in relation to an interview.


Dear Mr Stevenson,

With four years of experience as a nurse in the cardiology unit of X Hospital, I know what it takes to provide exemplary patient care. My former supervisor, [supervisor’s name], continues to speak highly of Y Hospital and suggested I contact you about a cardiac care position.

I performed a clinical rotation at your hospital during my training and saw it as the gold standard for providing exemplary health care. I would be thrilled to be part of the team, bringing my CMC certification and highly-rated experience working with cardiac patients, among other qualifications. As you transition to a new charting system, I would be happy to bring my own expertise handling patient charts into the fold.

I have witness Y Hospital’s dedication and commitment to providing exemplary care to cardiac patients firsthand and would be delighted to join you. I look forward to hearing from you in this regard.


Dear Miss Shelly,

Since I was a child, helping people has been my calling; I even tucked my siblings in when they were sick and gave them a bell to ring if they needed help. This passion for caring for others led me to become a registered nurse in 2008.

As a proud RN with more than 10 years of experience in direct patient care, I would be thrilled to bring my passion to X Hospital. I have focused on pediatric care for the majority of my career, and your new children’s wing presents so many opportunities and possibilities. Your mission of accommodating the news of every child perfectly aligns with my own.

At my current employer, I developed a scheduling system that improved efficiency by 35%. I have also been routinely highly rated by both colleagues and patients; in fact, several long-term patients have requested me on numerous occasions. I would be so excited to replicate these same accomplishments in the new facility at X hospital.

I look forward to discussing the position further with you.
