Dear Ms. Aarons,
I am writing to apply for the Charge Nurse position now available at Botsford Hospital. My skills and training match the description in your posting.
I have two years nursing experience working as an RN and a reputation for being dependable and thorough. My duties include admitting and discharging patients and making sure that everyone who comes into the facility receives proper care in a timely manner. However, I have the knowledge to determine which cases should take priority due to their severity.
I have experience taking vitals, monitoring patients and keeping doctors informed of patient’s progress and special needs. I also have the training and nursing skills required to create health plans that addresses the needs of each patient individually.
I have excellent verbal and written communications skills needed to work with other health care professionals and patients. I always maintain a professional attitude even when working in the hectic environment health care facilities often experience.
I have excellent leadership skills with the ability to manage staff members efficiently. I can also help train new staff members in their duties and assist in educating them on how the facility runs. I have the ability to fill out all reports, make schedules, perform evaluations and handle problems relating to staff performance and attendance.
I have a real desire to care for and help patients with their medical needs and I welcome the opportunity to work for a well-established facility such as yours.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555 and I hope to meet with you soon.
