RE: Position listed

To whom it may concern:

I am extremely interested in the Psychiatric Mental Health Practitioner job you have listed. I am a recent graduate and soon to be credentialed PMHNP from Walden University with 28 years of experience as a Registered Nurse.

This position seems like a wonderful transition to patient care as an Advanced Practice Nurse. Enclosed is my resume encompassing my work and educational background. Some highlights of my capabilities are:

I have extensive experience as an advanced specialty practitioner in previous jobs and I understand initiative driven independent practice

My education has prepared me well in understanding evidence-based practice and implementing this in the care of patients

I am motivated and engaged in change processes easily recognizing often dramatic evidence-based changes and implementing change in the care of patients

I am extremely dependable in work attendance and I think you will be impressed with my past lack of call ins or tardies.

After reviewing my enclosure, I hope, and expect, you will find me a good candidate to explore further the possibility of filling your professional position vacancy. Please contact me at my email or feel free to call my personal phone at your convenience so we can schedule an interview. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.

My philosophy of Nursing

At the heart of my being I accept that all people are individuals with an intrinsic value deserving of respect for their existence despite their differences from me.

Through my practice of nursing, also, I have the opportunity to interact into the existence of other’s experience of life in a unique and intimate way which helps them be as functional in living their life as possible. This interaction is a relationship and each patient I help also helps me to enhance my experience of life and living.

My job of nursing is but one facet of my experience as a nurse. The nursing experience, I have found in my second decade of practice, affects my interaction with people and promotes understanding and patience with other people in all my interactions.

Through ongoing personal education, self-reflection, and formal education I expand my ability to promote patients’ autonomy, independence, and value as an individual and community member.


I have a relentless thirst for knowledge and one of my greatest attributes is my willingness to countenance ideas that are foreign to my cohorts and companions in the various facets of my life. This willingness to engage in the new and try new ideas and behaviors has become somewhat of a double-edged sword. It is a double-edged sword because as time goes on I have divested myself of dogmatic ideas in all areas of my life. What I have learned is that people are slow to change and engage in activities which might be a radical departure from their norm and my easy willingness to try new things is often treated as a form of irresponsible practice. In nursing, I have found that veteran experienced practitioners are very slow to enact evidence-based practice if it flies in the face of what they have traditionally done. I have learned to be very patient with fellow nurses in implementing evidence-based changes in clinical practice. One must let veteran nurses decide to change their practice, so I provide a patient example of education and practice until they decide it is their choice to change their practice.


In the nursing world I have concerned myself with personal achievements of excellence in clinical practice. In every unit I have ever worked I have eventually become a resource and exemplar of highly skilled practice. As a PICC nurse I was probably the first registered nurse in the state of Arkansas to place an ultrasound guided PICC. This occurred during a debate as to whether we should even attempt it and I simply did it.

A current achievement of mine is bringing my education in psychiatric health to the PACU where I have learned to recognize the behavioral changes occurring with general anesthesia and recovery and use psychiatric principles to assess, identify, and treat patients promoting optimal outcomes.


I am embarking on another chapter in my nursing career focusing on psychiatric and behavioral medicine. This is very exciting to me as my eyes and mind have been opened and my awareness broadened concerning these health manifestations. I want to be a part of the exploding world of neurology and psychiatry which is occurring even as I write this. The growing knowledge base of physical and psychosocial brain/mind function is a dynamic I am proud and pleased to be a part of and I see myself as being in the vanguard of burgeoning psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners.

Once I am established as a PMHNP, it will be time to consider working on a Doctorate.

Practitioner and Proprietor of Distin Psychiatric Services

To whom it may concern,

It is with respect I recommend Mr. Monte Moore as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. He has been my student for his clinical year of practice. During that year he has never called in or failed to be on time to his clinical practicum.

Additionally, as the year progressed he exhibited a willingness to learn and accept direction which has resulted in expanding capabilities as a practitioner.

It is my pleasure to recommend him without reservation and whole heartedly as a new entrant into our growing profession of PMHNP professionals.

I am sure he will have an exemplary career and bear good witness as a PMHNP.
