Dear Ms. Smith:
I am writing in response to your advertisement in The Melrose Daily News for a full-time Licensed Practical Nurse. I believe that I can fill that position well due to my education, health care experience, and professional sincerity.
A recent LPN graduate of the Pohasset Regional Technical School in Taunton, MA, I currently hold a license in Massachusetts and have also applied for a New Hampshire license.
My demonstrated strong organizational and communication skills derive from my successful employment experiences in business offices, as my enclosed resume confirms. These skills, coupled with my LPN education and training, should prove to be of great benefit to your family health center.
I am confident that you will agree that my qualifications match your requirements for this position. Therefore, I would greatly appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to fully reveal my keen interest in the health care field and to determine how I may fit your staff profile. I can be reached by e-mail, home phone, or cell phone days or evenings to arrange for an appointment. If I do not hear from you by Monday, February 15, I will call your office to request a meeting at a time convenient to you or another member of your staff.
Thank you for considering my application for employment at Lowden Family Health Centers.
