    hey Mr Chicago.. i started my own thread... could i possibly email you mine ?
    I believe you need 15 posts before you can send a private message.

    Just post it up in your thread. Just make sure you take all the personal identifiers out to avoid spammers and stalkers.

    I'll take a look at it then, ok?

    Hello to everyone here on this site. I need some advice or feedback if anyone has the time to look at my cover letter that I just wrote. I am an RN graduate with no prior experience except 2 years working as a medical tech for the Navy. I feel like it is ok for a first draft but don't know if it is what a nurse manager or HR is looking for, any thoughts??? Thank you for taking the time.

    Dear XXX:

    I am writing you today because of my sincere interest in becoming a nurse on your Medical-Surgical floor at XXX hospital. After researching many different hospitals in southern Florida your hospital caught my eye because of "XXX".

    I understand what it takes to be a successful nurse on a medical surgical floor and that is being able to prioritize, working with a multitude of patients, and being able to handle stressful situations with a clear mind. I know the importance of following protocol and working well with a team and within the chain of command. I have a sincere compassion for the wellbeing of my patients and a strong desire to not only learn but to eventually serve as a mentor and give back to others. What sets me apart from others is my strong work ethic, ambition, and drive for excellence which is why I believe I would make a valuable addition to your team.

    I want to thank you for taking the time to consider me as a candidate at XXX and I look forward to following up with you next week.

    Respectfully yours,
