Dear Ms. Neece,
I am applying for the Nurses Aide job available at Northeast Baptist Hospital.
After graduating, I completed a certified nursing assistant program to acquire the skills needed to begin my nursing career. My training included taking vital signs, keeping accurate records of all the readings and recording all other relevant information.
I am very observant with the ability to notice changes in the patient’s overall health and I have the ability to communicate my observations to the patient’s health care provider in a clear and concise manner. I have active listening skills with the ability to stay focused and alert at all times.
I have the ability to help patients with everyday activities such as eating, taking baths and getting dressed. I have the interpersonal skills needed to help patients feel comfortable and relaxed while providing these services to help lift their spirits a little. I also have the physical ability and stamina to help patients in and out of bed and to help them move from one area of the facility to another.
I have excellent time management skills, I can respond quickly when needed and I am CPR certified. I have the ability to stay calm during emergencies and to take the appropriate course of action depending on the situation. I am very compassionate and sympathetic to the needs of the patients but I also have the ability to remain professional. I am dependable and I can work nights and weekends if required.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555.
