I would like to know if a cover letter written like this make sense? I want to be upfront and avoid having to explain again during the interview. I know about the spelling
error and will correct it later. There may be grammar
error but I will correct it if I can catch it. Thanks
I only have one year nursing experience, mostly causual shifts, and sometimes my references is not reliable? I dunno.
This letter is an application for a RPN position at any one of your nursing homes. If your company's policy for potential RPN employees requires more than one year of nursing work exprience and more than one professional refernce, then please disregard this letter as I do not have the presiquets.
According to CNO, I cannot use the title RPN because my 2005 registration has been suspensed for non-payment of annual fees. If you look through my resume, you will notice that I have not work as a RPN since December 2003. I have renewed the 2004 registration, but I could not find work in the 2004 year and had no income left to pay for the 2005 registration. I had been terminated from my first and last nursing job because I failed to renew the 2003 tempatory registation into the 2003 general registation before the end of 2003 as per contract. I decided to quit at that time because of the loss and inability to get transportation to work. Currently I am able to arrange transportation to work again. I beleive I can reinstate my year 2005 membership with the CNO within a reasonable amount of time and to go to First Aid/CPR courses if a written conditional employment offer has been received.
I will include the contact persons who may be able to serve as a reference for you to contact ahead of time before deciding to arrange for an interview.

I agree with the others. TMI! If I were to recieve a cover letter like that the first thing I'd think of would be to run, it makes you sound horrible. Stop second guessing your self and think positive. You NEED a positive cover letter. It sounds like you have really had some serious issues with your career. Get some councling, renew your license and maybe even take a refresher course or two. Doing those thing will make you feel more confidient in yourself. Then write a cover letter about the positive qualities you have to offer. I wish you luck!
