Dear Ms. Tu
I am writing to apply for the Auxiliary Nurse position opening up within the Greenville Regional Hospital.
I am searching for a position in which I can utilize my skills and grow professionally with an institution such as yours. I have a nursing degree and four years of experience working in this field. My experience includes gathering information to determine patient’s condition and reporting this information to attending physician or nurse in charge.
I have the ability to take vitals, EKG’s, prepare patients for exams and the ability to perform other general nursing duties. I have the ability to assist patients when they need help dressing, going to the bathroom, taking a walk or eating meals.
I can read charts and follow detailed instructions to ensure patients are receiving the prescribed medication. I can also monitor their progress and alert head nurse or attending physician of any changes or problems that arise. I have the experience and skills needed to work in a hectic and unpredictable environment while maintaining efficiency and a good attitude.
I have outstanding communications skills with the ability to help patients relax and stay calm during a time when many tend to panic. I also have a good record of convincing patients to take part in health programs that help improve their quality of life. I have included my resume with a complete look at my training and education.
I would like to thank you for considering my application for this position. You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555.
