My goals has been to offer basic nursing care, along with activities that motivate and bring a new sense of health and capability to the elders I serve.
I would love to offer my experience and skills to your center, and thank you for reviewing my resume. Please give me a call at (555)-555-5555 to arrange for an interview.
