Dear Hiring Committee,
Please accept this letter as an application for the healthcare aid position which you have available. The requirements listed for this position precisely align with my qualifications. In addition to my qualifications, I have received my Licensed Practical nurse Certification from Bow Valley College and completed my healthcare aid certificate at ABM College of Calgary in 2014. I am certified in IV therapy and Phlebotomy, and I have completed an Immunization certificate which qualifies me to administer vaccines and immunizations safely. With my strong educational background and over 5 years of experience as a Licensed practical nurse working in pediatrics, dementia unit, and with adults I firmly believe that I will be a great asset to your team. My current position as an LPN in Classic Life Home Care has been a wonderful opportunity as it has allowed me to specialize in pediatric nursing and thrive in a field that I am most passionate about. However, I am now seeking a place of employment that better fits my needs. In this position, I was regularly tasked with communicating with pediatric patients with spinal cord injuries and disability. My responsibilities included taking vital signs such as blood pressure, weight, and temperature, application of dressing, wound care, insertion of catheters, nasopharyngeal and oral suctioning, and administration of medications. I constantly strive to provide the best care for my patients, and this can be seen through their satisfaction with my care.
Aside from my exceptional organizational and outstanding bedside manners, I am also a great communicator. As a problem solver, I have the ability to think quickly and analyze many different situations to find the best and most effective treatment for a patient. To add, I am also a team player, and I fully understand the value of working together with different healthcare professionals to collectively enhance patient care. You will find that I also have knowledge of various computer skills such as Microsoft word, Excel and PowerPoint which I accumulated through my experience as a medical technologist.
My diverse skills and knowledge from different careers help me succeed and adapt to any job position. My altruistic nature and drive to assist individuals and care for them makes me the perfect candidate for this position. I look forward to hearing back from you and having the chance to discuss my candidacy in the future.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
