Hey!!! I'm a nursing student looking for a tech job and one just opened in OB at the hospital I want to work at after graduation. This is the PERFECT job for me so I need urgent help perfecting my cover letter. Any tips would be GREATLY appreciated. Also, advice on following up the application? Should I call HR? Email?

Attention Human Resources:
I am writing in response to an announcement posted on FACILITY employment opportunities website for Care Partner - 4 East/Obstetrics position. As you can see from my resume, I am in my final year as a nursing student at SCHOOL.
Upon graduation, it is my intention to pursue a position as an RN in women's health. This position would enable me to continue learning about the specialty that has been my passion since before nursing school ever began.
My clinical experience in Women's Health, Medical Surgical Nursing, Intensive Care Unit, Pediatrics and Long Term Care have enabled me to develop skills that prepare of the responsibilities of a care partner. My employment background in retail and customer service taught me comfort and confidence in interaction with customers and therefore with patients. My love for obstetrics makes me eager to learn and to give everything I already know to fulfill the duties of this position accurately, safely, and enthusiastically.
I would be honored and excited to be a part of Facility team and contribute my skills to your staff and patients. Thank you for giving my resume consideration. I would welcome the chance to meet with you to discuss possible employment opportunities. I look forward to hearing from you.
