I'm just after a little bit of advice. I'm trying to write my personal statement for a neonatal nurse position. I really really really want this job. And since I'm an Adult Nurse and the job description is for Child I feel like I really need to sell myself.
It's already a pretty wordy statement (hope they don't fall asleep!!) But I was thinking of mentioning some current research or guidelines, such as something recent from DOH or NICE which is directly related to neonatal care. It'd just be a passing comment like 'I'd like to see how guidelines such as (insert guideline here) affect practice'.
Really it's just to show that I'm interested in current happenings.
Too much, a little off topic?? Should I just stick to why I want to work there etc.. I don't want to bore them
