Dear Mr. Employer,

I am writing to express my interest in the Staff Nurse I position in Community
Health at Xavier Community Services. My clinical experience in a variety of settings
and my Bachelor of Science in Nursing make me an excellent candidate for your

Through my education at Resurrection University, I have been taught to focus on
various aspects of individual healthcare, including patient care, monitoring disease
progression, dispensing medication, and administering assessments.I became
enthusiastic about working in Community Health during my clinical rotation, where
I was able to see how nursing could integrate both technical and nurturing skills in
order to effectively treat patients.

Even after my rotation, I continued working with this population during my role
transition as a senior student nurse. I spent forty hours a week practicing
foundational nursing skills and techniques, such as prioritization of care and
communication, as well as compassion for patients and their families.

Through these experiences, I have learned to be a present listener who is patient,
empathetic, cooperative, nurturing and able to communicate effectively with
patients and peers as well as other healthcare professionals.

I am interested in this position, not only because I want to work in this setting, but
because I know I would make a great addition to Xavier Community Services. I
would be honored to have the opportunity to become a part of your team and
contribute my skills to your organization and patients. You may feel free to contact
me at or by phone at (773) 252.5133. Thank you for
your consideration and time in reviewing my application.
