To whom it may concern:

While searching your current job postings, I was pleased to learn of the advanced practice nurse position you have available and it made me interested in joining your team. Thank you kindly for accepting my marketing portfolio and for your consideration on accepting me for employment.

I am an Adult Gerontology/Acute Care NP with a MSN at University of Alabama at Birmingham. I currently work as a Nurse Practitioner in a Clinical Setting with an Interventional Cardiologist. I have a solid background in Cardiology and Critical Care. While at UAB, I completed a rotation in Cardiology, Emergency Department, Pulmonary/Sleep Study/Critical Care. Specific Skills competencies for my track include: arterial line insertion, CVL insertion, thorocentesis, endotracheal intubation, lumbar puncture, and suturing. Along with the skills, accurate H&P recording, improving physical assessment skills, forming diagnosis & differentials, ordering appropriate tests and utilizing the results appropriately to plan and optimize patient care and treatment of disease and symptoms.

I am interested in acute care and have a broad range of experience that I could contribute to your practice. Most peers and patients would describe me as very dependable, trustworthy, and concerned. I love to see my work make a difference in the lives of those that I serve. My strong initiative and exceptional organization skills, combined with my ability to work well under pressure, will enable me to make a substantial contribution to your team. I believe that my critical care skills from experience from my current position, as well as experience in the cath lab and intensive care will allow my to do well in challenging environments, and my experience as a hospice nurse will allow me to be a sympathetic listener and incorporate the patient’s wishes. I am a strong advocate for preventative care, education, and evidence based practice.

Enclosed is my portfolio for your review. I welcome the opportunity to discuss with you personally how my skills and strength can best serve your team.
