Here is what I have so far. It has taken me weeks, but I finally feel like it's finished. Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks so much for your time
Dear Ms. ******:
I am writing to introduce myself at the suggestion of **** *****, RN, BSN (MICU/CCU) who supervised my work as a student during clinical nursing experiences. I will be graduating from the registered nursing program at***** State College in May 2013 and desire to begin my nursing career with *********City Hospital.
As indicated in my enclosed resume I have spent time at ***** City Hospital during my clinical experiences on the labor and delivery/postpartum floors. Through these experiences, I was very impressed with the staff's willingness to teach and guide me as a student and the excellent quality of patient care that is provided. I absorbed a wealth of knowledge in the time I spent there and knew that this would be somewhere I would be privileged to work. My goal is to begin my nursing career with ********City Hospital as this hospital offers the opportunity for me to further develop my knowledge and skills and grow as a professional nurse allowing me to bring a positive impact to the client, facility and the community.
I will bring ******* City Hospital a strong passion for maternity care and women's health, as well as leadership and organization skills gained through my previous career and clinical experiences. I pride myself in staying organized and on my ability to prioritize and manage multiple tasks while always maintaining patient safety. Previous instructors have commented on my ability to establish a professional and compassionate relationship with my patients. I feel that this is an integral quality for a nurse to possess as it maintains trust and confidence between the patient and the nurse. It is of upmost importance to me to always be an advocate for my patient and to ensure they have an optimal experience.
I have continued to stay up to date with ******* City Hospital and am very excited to see the many advances they are making to further improve their patient care and safety to both mother and baby. This is why I would be delighted to begin my career with *****City Hospital and look forward to hearing from you in regard to available opportunities. You can reach me at ***.***.**** or *****@edu.
