Here's my cover letter that I will be sending to a new grad program. Should I add in anything regarding experiences or use their vision statement or mission at all? It's a 200ish bed christian based not for profit facility so I don't know if there's anything i should add in.
Also? Is it okay for other programs, just altering it a bit to tailor it.
Dear Sir or Madam:
Thank you for reviewing my application for the XXX Medical Center New Graduate program. As of May, I will have completed more than 150 hours of peceptorship and will be eligible to sit for the NCLEX. In addition to the required clinical experience and my preceptorship I always seek ways to increase my own knowledge for the benefit of my clients and the facility at which I pursue my career.
My dedication to continuing education to better serve my clients and place of work led me to obtain my ACLS certification in December 2011 as an addition to my current BLS certification. In addition, I completed a 30 hour basic EKG course and recently finished the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) training via the American Heart Association. I obtained Conflict Prevention and Intervention (CPI) non violent intervention and deescalation training in order to better intervene in potentially dangerous situations and resolve them safely and in the best interests of clients and staff. Being active within my community is important to me and I seek to bring that commitment to your facility and the community of XXXX. I participate on the Disaster Action Team with my local Red Cross chapter as well as being a medical reserve corp volunteer for my county and the state of XXXX. I look forward to bringing my commitment to education and service to XXX Medical Center and the clients you serve.
Enclosed is my resume for your review.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Getting a name out of HR is like pulling teeth from a lion. I'd love to address it personally, but sometimes, it's not possible.
If I manage to get one though, whom am I addressing by name? HR or the UD/NM?
Thank you though! I appreciate the critique.
