Dear Ms. Wood,
I am writing to state my interest in the open nurse practitioner position at Sheridan Community Hospital. After examining the community around your hospital and the general practices of the organization, I have come to believe that I represent a person whose individual mission aligns closely with the hospital’s. By hiring me, you will find not only a person who has a long history of service and experience, but one who will also do everything possible to advance the organization’s mission.
My college experience comes from the University of Arkansas, where I completed a bachelor’s degree in nursing. Shortly after college, I began volunteering at local hospitals and community centers. In 2010, I became a nurse practitioner with the St. Claire Children’s Hospital. During this time I began working part-time on a master’s degree in nursing, which I expect to be completed within the next year. Each organization that I served a role in taught me something new in terms of practice information and gave me additional insight into improving the patient experience. I believe that your hospital will represent a completion in my journey, allowing me to use all the knowledge I have acquired.
My resume is enclosed, and I will happily provide references upon request. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. You can reach me via email at [email] or via phone at (870) 985-4414. Thank you very much for taking the time to review my resume, and I very much look forward to the chance to explore this exciting opportunity with you further.
