Dear Mr Hogan:
I am excited to express my interest in the registered nurse position available at Metro Hospital. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing at Regional University, and during my internship at Regional Medical Center I had the opportunity to become acquainted with the fast pace and distinct challenges of working in a large medical facility. I have long been impressed by Metro Hospital’s outstanding reputation as one of the premier pediatric and emergency care facilities in the city. I believe that my gentle bedside manner and outstanding attention to detail would make me a strong addition to your team.
I have learned in a variety of nursing environments, including the emergency room, home health care services, and Regional Medical Center’s pediatric department. I have strong people skills and strive to acquaint myself with each patient’s family members and support system to best facilitate an effective long-term care plan that will send patients home with the knowledge and tools necessary to maintain their health at home.
I believe that I could be a strong candidate for the RN position at your hospital, with my nursing degree and experience working with the challenges of pediatric patients. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss the requirements of the position with you further at your convenience. I look forward to hearing from you.
