    I don't go into great detail when I write them, just 1-2 paragraphs on clinical skills, critical thinking, motivation and initiative, and ability to work as a team player. Also good to include length of time known and in what capacity.

    What is the letter of reference for? You will need to taylor the recommendation toward the skills/knowledge/attributes needed for that particular position.
