April 30, 2019

Dear Mr. Employer,

I am writing to express my interest in the Staff Nurse I position in Community
Health at Xavier Community Services. My clinical experience in a variety of settings
and my Bachelor of Science in Nursing make me an excellent candidate for your
program.

Through my education at Resurrection University, I have been taught to focus on
various aspects of individual healthcare, including patient care, monitoring disease
progression, dispensing medication, and administering assessments. I became
enthusiastic about working in Community Health during my clinical rotation, where
I was able to see how nursing could integrate both technical and nurturing skills in
order to effectively treat patients.

Even after my rotation, I continued working with this population during my role
transition as a senior student nurse. I spent forty hours a week practicing
foundational nursing skills and techniques, such as prioritization of care and
communication, as well as compassion for patients and their families.

Through these experiences, I have learned to be a present listener who is patient,
empathetic, cooperative, nurturing and able to communicate effectively with
patients and peers as well as other healthcare professionals.

I am interested in this position, not only because I want to work in this setting, but
because I know I would make a great addition to Xavier Community Services. I
would be honored to have the opportunity to become a part of your team and
contribute my skills to your organization and patients. You may feel free to contact
me at [email protected] or by phone at (773) 252.5133. Thank you for
your consideration and time in reviewing my application.

Sincerely,

Dear Ms. Tammy,

I am expressing my interest in the registered nurse position in the pediatric department of plastic surgery at Ann & Robert H. Lurie. I saw the job posted on Indeed website. Your facility is looking for a responsible, efficient, someone who has a great communication skill and who loves children. I have all the qualifications that your facility is requiring.

Currently, I am still a student nurse at Oak Point University and planning to graduate in April 2022. Nursing has been a passion, and I am about to make my dream comes true. I learned so much through out my education at Oak Point University. During my clinicals at University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, I had the opportunity to meet great nurses who were willing to help me succeed. To work in pediatric, a nurse needs to have empathy, be kind and have emotional stability because it is hard seeing innocent children having chronic diseases. I was able to interact with kids and their family, giving medications, doing assessments, doing vital signs, following the facility’s protocols, and making sure to follow the HIPPA law. All the nurses on the floor have dedication.

My son was born with cleft lip and palate, and he had so many surgeries. During appointments and hospital stays, nurses were there to make it easy. I want to do the same for pediatric patients and their families. I am a good listener, caring, attentive and love children. I have a great communication skill. I always interact with patients and their family, I like to make them feel comfortable.

I am interested in this position because I want to be part of this great hospital. I have all the characteristics required to fit for this position. I would welcome the chance to contribute to the success of Ann Lurie’s Children Hospital. Please do not hesitate to give me a call at (267) 265 4896 or via e-mail at [email protected] I am available any time. Thank you for your time.
