Dear Sir or Madam,

I am excited to learn of the available Family Nurse Practitioner position at your medical practice. I am a new graduate with 17 years of nursing experience. Additionally I am fully board certified and licensed as a family nurse practitioner.

I am strongly knowledgeable about disease pathology and common illnesses people encounter. I have an excellent bedside manner and am able to correctly assess patient needs and to choose the correct treatment for various disease processes. I understand that in a busy family practice it is important that your family nurse practitioner is able to work independently with patients while requiring minimal supervision so that you have time to address more acute medical needs. I strongly believe in good patient care and I am able to supervise other nurses and medical staff to ensure it is provided. I have excellent problem solving and communication skills. I help patients who are sick feel more comfortable providing holistic care, health promotion and education. With me as your new Family Nurse Practitioner I hope to be an asset to your organization and I am eager to mesh with your practice culture.

I can be contacted after five PM to schedule an interview. I encourage you to review my credentials and resume and call to schedule.
