Resume:

Applying for the position of registered practical nurse. I am diligent, self-sufficient, teachable, motivated, efficient, a team player and reliable. I have a passion for chronic illness and disease prevention amongst vulnerable populations in acute care settings. I believe these qualities will be useful with a position in your organization. I graduated from Durham College with a registered practical nurse diploma.

The Interprofessional Resource Team (IRT) experience allowed me to work in the ALC, surgery, cardiology, oncology, medicine, nephrology, and hemodialysis units. In the IRT department I developed strong awareness of the multidisciplinary team. Developed strong wound care prevention, evaluation and treatment planning through my role in the surgery department. Knowledge of medication administration prior to wound care, which I acquired on the ALC unit. Proven to be reliable and calm during crisis and experience in therapeutic intervention skills when properly administering medication were utilized on the medicine unit.

Working with the nursing resource team allowed me to utilize my excellent time management skills which assisted in patient centered care plans. My clinical rotations within the NRT department have also enhanced my critical thinking, communication and time management skills. Theses skills have allowed me to gain confidence in applying my knowledge to a variety of units. My IRT role also gave me the ability to work in a highly demanding work environment with many competing priorities and deadlines. I have nursing student experience in acute care, complex continuing care, med/surge at Lakeridge Health Ajax location, rehabilitation, mental health and Providence long-term care. My practical skills and experiences are easily transferable to work in any new environment

I believe my hands-on skills, work ethic and commitment to leadership would be a great contribution to your facility. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Please contact me by mobile 416-***-**** or by email addie9@r.postjobfree.com. I look forward to an opportunity where I can discuss my skills and experience in more detail. I can make a valuable addition to the care team.

Sincerely, Tania Lafleur RPN
