Dear Perspective Employer,

I am submitting my application for the nurse practitioner position that was recently posted at your organization. I am a recent graduate from Olivet Nazarene University who is seeking an employment opportunity to initiate my career as an advanced practice registered nurse. In seeking employment as a new practitioner, I am able to reflect back to not only my education, but my numerous years of nursing in oncology that gave a broad aspect into healthcare services. The outpatient nursing experience gave an insight into the level of demand for quality practitioners that concentrate on preventative care while treating acute and chronic conditions safely, effectively, and cost-effectively. My nursing experience provided the opportunity to elevate effective communication skills to a complex patient population providing education and guidance through complex and evolving care plans and disease patterns. Additional aspects of the past working environment demanded an advanced learning curve that enabled me to adapt to any situation and become a quick learner to any new policy, procedure, or patient situation.

I feel with my previous patient experience, advanced degree, knowledge of the healthcare and quality standards, I can become a proficient advanced nurse practitioner with your organization.

Please acknowledge my attached resume.
