Hi All!!! I have an ultimate career goal of becoming an Oncology RN. I am hoping you will have some input on ways to improve my cover letter. Thank you for your help!!!
Here it is..........
I am writing in reference to the Oncology Registered Nurse position currently posted on your website. I am vitally interested in becoming a member of Blank Hospital's team. Beyond a doubt, I have an endless passion and strong enthusiasm for Oncology nursing and would be devoted in becoming an asset to your team as a Registered Nurse. Cancer has personally touched my life, and the ability to use my skills and experience to care for this population is personally and professionally rewarding. Although I am at the beginning of my nursing career, I have been working in the medical field for over 9 years, with 7 of those years as a procedure medical assistant, which has given me the skills, tools, discipline and drive to go further in my career.
As you can see by my resume, I am currently coming to the end of a 6 month contract working as a Registered Nurse at AA/NA. I work alongside staff and physicians in the management and treatment of alcohol and/or substance withdrawal in an outpatient medically supervised withdrawal service. I also worked as a Medical Assistant for St. John's Hospital for over 7 years. During my career with St. John's Hospital I worked as a Procedure Medical Assistant in a busy Urgent Care clinic that usually consisted of 30 doctors seeing over 850 patients per day. Some of my duties included overseeing 4 Medical Assistants, a TST and a receptionist in coordinating clinic flow.
Through nursing school and working in a fast paced medical setting, I have learned to adapt quickly, problem solve, critically think, manage patient care and employees, do extensive patient and family teaching, all while preserving patient confidentiality. I am a quick learner, thoroughly enjoy learning new things, do not shy away from difficult assignments, and have an affinity for relating to patients and their families. I am driven by the needs of my patients, whether it physiological, emotional, spiritual, and being their advocate and exhausting all of my resources to respond and resolve those needs.
Throughout my many dedicated years of working in the medical field and schooling, I have comfortably polished my communication skills with patients, families, staff, and physicians, and feel confident in my ability to be a great nurse and asset to my patients as well as fellow peers.
I am sincerely interested in becoming a part of the Oncology nursing team at Blank's Hospital. I will bring a safe, effective, and efficient quality of nursing that will be of benefit to my patients and team. Dedicated, passionate and genuinely devoted to a future career in Oncology nursing, I am up to the task of a demanding and challenging career ahead where I believe I can thrive. I truly appreciate your time in reading my letter and resume. I look forward to meeting you in person.
Future Oncology, RN
