Dear Ms. Shara Johnson,
I am writing to express my interest in the position of Diabetes Educator with New York Methodist Hospital.
I am a licensed registered nurse with a real concern for the millions of people who have diabetes. Many of these people have no idea how this condition will affect them if they do not get it under control. For this reason, I decided to pursue a career as an educator for diabetes to help diabetics learn how to control this problem and how to help others learn how to prevent it.
I have completed all of the requirements, passed the National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators exam and became a Certified Diabetes Educator. I would like to put my knowledge and skills to work for your organization to help educate the public about diabetes.
I have excellent communication skills and an easy-going personality that makes it easy to communicate with people. I have also acquired counseling skills and learned how to talk to patients in a way that is sympathetic but that conveys the seriousness of this disease.
I have the ability to teach patients about nutrition, glucose monitoring and obtaining the appropriate glucose levels by following certain steps to achieve a healthier lifestyle. These include managing blood sugar through proper diet, medication and exercise. I can help patients understand diabetes better and provide them with the education they need to reduce their risks of becoming diabetic or to teach them how to manage the disease.
I hope to meet with you soon to discuss this position in person and my contact number is (555)-555-5555.
