Dear Mr. (Ms.) ___________,

Hi there! I am applying to your open position of Registered Nurse that was advertised on the Healthcare jobsite. I graduated five years ago with my Bachelor’s in Nursing from XXXX University, completing two internships at your hospital in pediatrics and emergency room care. After graduation, I was hired in a doctor’s office, working with patients ranging from newborns to the elderly.

Eager to return to hospital work, I was happy to learn you are hiring pediatric nurses. While I have not been working exclusively with children for the past five years, I do have extensive experience in well-care baby and kid visits, including testing and measuring for natural growth development. I believe I am an ideal candidate for this opening and would like to briefly introduce my qualifications. Please consider:

  • I am a Licensed Nurse, registered with the state (#1111111) with a Bachelor’s in Nursing.
  • I have worked for five years in a busy doctor’s office, serving upwards of 20 patients per day, handling in-processing and patient assessments, managing patient files and communications, and helping patients complete/schedule tests.
  • I served as a liaison between doctors and patients, ensuring they understand doctor’s instructions, helping them with referrals, and assisting with drug prescriptions as needed.
  • I ensured compliance with HIPAA requirements and client confidentiality standards while ensuring a safe office.

Confident I will prove valuable to your operation, I respectfully submit my resume for your review. Additionally, I would like to meet with you to discuss your goals and how I can help you achieve them.  I will make myself available at your convenience and look forward to your call.  Thank you for your consideration.
