Re: Registered Nursing Position
To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing for employment opportunities for an RN position. I am enclosing my resume for your review and for any future opportunities that may be a good fit.
As you will see, I have recently obtained my licensure in Registered Nursing and performed nursing rotations at a variety of clinical settings. My employment experiences have allowed me to develop strong skills in all areas of nursing and I am excited to bring those traits and skills into the next level of my career. These experiences have given me the essentials of working in diverse working conditions. It would be my utmost pleasure to apply this experience to a position in your unit.
Home Health agencies are a growing organization that I would be very proud to be a part. Most my nursing career has been catered to home health and would like to advance my career in this nursing field. I have been an LVN for over four years and will have my RN for a year this coming September. I am proficient in Microsoft Office Suite and experience in computer charting. I have a clean driving record and automobile insurance. I have a positive attitude and am easy to work with. I would be fortunate to have an opportunity to interview. I would be delighted to go over these qualifications in person. You can reach me at 650-***-****. I look forward to your call.
