To Whom It May Concern,
Perhaps you are in need of a proficient Nurse Practitioner who is truly dedicated and compassionate about patient care. Having worked as a critical care nurse and previously, a school teacher, I believe to have acquired the necessary skills to offer high quality health services to patients and their families.
My experience and education have provided me with excellent knowledge on patient assessment and treatment. I have the ability to learn quickly and apply knowledge effectively. This, coupled with my attention to details, organizational and communication skills, will allow me to make a substantial contribution to your staff. Moreover, having been exposed to several clinical sites during my schooling at Adelphi University, I gained knowledge of various fields in medicine including cardiovascular, endocrine, pain management and general medicine.
Overall, I believe that my past experiences have prepared me to be an outstanding Nurse Practitioner and would appreciate the opportunity to prove myself. I have attached my resume for your review and am looking forward to telling you in greater detail how I can contribute to your team. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
