Dear Sir:

I am a new Family Nurse Practitioner graduate from Walden University and

have recently passed the AANP certification. I am applying for the position you

advertised on the Internet for a Family Nurse Practitioner opening in your facility.

I have eight years of nursing experience. My previous medical background and clinical

experience makes me a perfect match for the position. My clinical experience has

provided me with the skills and confidence I need to practice as an FNP. I don’t

need further commendation of myself as my resume will speak for itself.

Enclosed is my resume for your review. I am looking forward to hear from you and

will be available for an interview at your most convenient time.

Respectfully Yours,

Bettina Cordova FNP
