Dear Ms. Dorothy Ladner,
I would like to be considered for the Diabetes Care Specialist that has recently been vacated at Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc.
While I was obtaining my bachelor’s degree in nursing I decided to make diabetes care my specialty and took courses that would help in my career path. I worked in an internship with diabetes patients and have earned certification as diabetes educator. I have spent over a thousand hours dedicated to diabetes self-management education which focused on many aspects of diabetic care.
I would bring to your institution great communication skills and the experience to aid patients in understanding their disease and how to manage it effectively. I can offer advice regarding dietary choices and how to monitor their blood sugar or insulin levels. It is my goal to improve the overall health of all of my patients so they are not limited by this disease.
I have the ability to structure personalized steps for new patients to learn how to better handle and cope with their disease by not only changing their diet but increasing their physical activity and monitoring their medications. My communication skills allow me to constructively provide long term care by keeping track of patient’s insulin levels over time. I also have familiarity with notating all medications to determine which medication and dose offered the best results to the patient over the long term.
I can be available for a meeting to further discuss my qualifications at any time. Feel free to call me at (555)-555-5555 to set up a time for an interview.
