Dear Ms. Clark,
I am applying for the Neonatal Nurse position at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and my training and skills match the requirements in your posting.
I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing and I am state certified with an RN license. I have completed courses in physiology, microbiology, anatomy and statistics. I have experience working in an ICU, where I assisted in administering care to infants under the direct supervision of other health care professionals.
My experience includes providing the basic care for infants, which includes feeding, bathing, changing diapers and making sure the environment is suited for newborns. I also spent some time with new mothers to ensure they knew how to provide this basic care for their newborns before leaving the hospital.
During this time, I also gained hands-on experience stabilizing sick infants, giving medications when necessary and performing a series of newborn tests. I also have the training to respond quickly and appropriately during emergencies.
While my current training qualifies me as a Level 1 Neonatal Nurse, I plan to gain the experience needed to treat premature newborns and those with illnesses or other medical conditions. I have the ability to keep excellent records and to handle the infants in a gentle, loving manner at all times.
This can be a very demanding and emotional career but I have what takes to hold this position. I can work the long hours that are often required and I thoroughly enjoy working with newborns and their families. I hope to meet with you soon to discuss this position further.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555.
