I'm going crazy over how to set up my cover letter salutation. I called the facility and asked them who to address it to, and she said "Attention nursing office" so this is what i put:

Central Island Healthcare

Attn: Nursing Office

825 Old Country Road

Plainview, NY 11803

Attn: Nursing Office,

blah blah blah

is that correct? I've been looking this up on google and i keep seeing that whenever something was addressed attn of, they put a person's name. the facility didn't give me a person's name to address it to, just the "nursing office". I wanna know if the

Attn: Nursing Office,

is the correct salutation since they did not give me a specific name. I don't want to put "Dear Nursing Office" bc it doesn't sound right to me. I'm so confuseedd.

I work in an HR office. I'd suggest:

Attn: Nursing Office

Name of Company


Dear Sir or Madam:

Please accept the enclosed resume in application to the available at your company. I bring to your company blah, blah, blah...

Keep it to 2 or 3 paragraphs. Don't recap your entire resume, just a short explanation of why you want to work there,etc.

I am looking forward to meeting with you to discuss this opportunity in person. Please contact me to arrange an interview at your earliest convenience.



Enclosure: Resume

Good luck!
