I was wondering if anyone here could post some links to websites with examples of letters of intent for nursing positions, or give me some exmaples as to what they should contain. I was at work (unit clerk) going through job listings and saw an opening for 11-7 in beginnings maternity. Having just attended a professionalism seminar at school and being told to apply early for the job we want when we graduate in June, I decided to apply online then and there. I got a call from HR two days later telling me I need to have a resume, a letter of recommendation from two instructors, my official transcripts, an intra-departmental transfer signed by my present boss, and a letter of intent as to why I want to work in maternity ready by January! I have no clue how to write this letter. I know why I want to work in L&D, but I want the letter to be as professional as possible. Positions in the department are hard to come by and I want to make the best first impression I can. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
