Dear Mr. Holloway:
This letter is in response to your advertisement in The New Haven Sunday Times, January 27, 2010, for a Licensed Practical Nurse to be employed at the Leone Mathieu Life Care Center.
I believe that my qualifications are strong for this position, for my 15 years in practical nursing have given me excellent professional experience in addition to my personal career objective of providing and maintaining the highest level of nursing care and quality of life to patients under my charge. My total nursing experience has been, and continues to be, full-time, direct patient care.
Always deeply committed to the nursing profession, I have striven to keep abreast of the latest data through in-service learning and reading various journals and selected publications. Courses taken in the liberal arts are in direct preparation for my Associate degree as a Registered Nurse. Moreover, they have broadened my capacity to deal with humanitarian issues that are so much a part of healing.
If you agree with me that my credentials are sound for this position at the Leone Mathieu Life Care Center, I would very much appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to discuss my candidacy for this opening at Memorial Hospital. I can be reached by e-mail, at my home after 5 p.m., or at any time by my cell phone to schedule an appointment at a time that is convenient to you.
Thank you for considering me for this position; I look forward to hearing from you soon.
