Dear Mr Little:
Nursing excellence occurs when the nursing process, patient safety and communication are paramount to a facility, and nurses experiences a supportive environment. The Medical Center’s RN Bridge Program’s 12-week transition program for graduate nurses entering the acute care clinical arena offers the opportunity for new nurses like me to start on the path to excellence from day one. This is why I am excited to apply for the RN Bridge Program as described on the Medical Center’s job opportunities board.
As you will see in my attached resume, I recently completed my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and will be sitting for my nurse license examination in July. Additionally, through my clinical experiences I had the opportunity to put the Nursing process – assessment, diagnosis, outcomes/planning, implementation and evaluation to work in practical settings, including medical surgical, emergency medicine, mental health, maternity, and pediatrics. I also utilized both my academic experiences and my Nurse Extern experience to hone my critical thinking skills, ability to work in a team and communication skills. Finally, my knowledge of CPR includes being certified in both Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). I look forward to expanding upon these experiences and focusing my career to the Medical Center’s needs through the RN Bridge Program.
I am particularly excited by the Medical Center’s designation by the American Nurse Association as a Magnet Hospital and the center’s Centers for Excellence in geriatric care, as these are in keeping with my long term goals. It would be an honor to join the Medical Center’s team.
I appreciate your time and consideration. I look forward to discussing my candidacy at greater length through an interview.
