Dear Ms. Halley,
I am applying for the position of Practical Nurse with Trilogy Health Services and I hope that you will consider me one of the top applicants for this job.
I have experience taking vitals, assessing the condition of patients and preparing them to be seen by the doctor. Once diagnosed, I can explain to patients their condition, talk to them about the medications prescribed and explain follow up procedures. I can also answer any questions they have about their condition or the medications the doctor prescribes.
I have a great bedside manner and I can help patients take care of their personal needs when they are not able to do it on their own. I have the ability to monitor patients closely and to alert the physician on duty when their condition changes.
I understand the risks of dealing with patients with certain diseases and medical conditions and I know all of the proper procedures to follow to avoid contaminating others or myself. I always follow safety protocol and I have the mental and physical abilities to handle working in this type of environment.
I am licensed and available for any shift your facility needs. The attached resume includes all of my skills, training and experience that are relevant to this position and I hope to meet with you soon to discuss the particulars of this job in person. I welcome the opportunity to work in a well-established facility such as yours.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to set up a meeting where we can discuss this position in more detail.
