RE: Registered Nurse Position
Dear Ms. Smith,
I am a current fifth-semester nursing student. After obtaining my license, I will be well positioned to join your Postpartum unit nursing staff and make a positive contribution. I completed my preceptorship (a 180-hour final internship) in the High-Risk Obstetrics unit at Tampa General Hospital and received a varied range of experiences from antepartum management, including non-stress tests, biophysical profiles, and transfers; to postpartum management including breastfeeding and post C-section care, and newborn care. I plan to pass my NCLEX by the end of June, 2019. I am interested in this field because the health of women and newborns is my passion, and I look forward to providing health promotion and education in those populations. Early education and prevention are crucial for protecting the health of newborns, our most vulnerable population. As the daughter of a Cuban-American immigrant, I am most passionate about advocating for those who may be new to this country or cannot speak English. This would be a tremendous asset to your unit.
My qualifications include:
Member of the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric, and Neonatal Nursing (AWHONN)
AWHONN Conference 2018 Student Ambassador
Extremely adept at instructing women and their families on health and wellness topics
Certification in nutritional therapy through the Nutritional Therapy Association
In my clinical rotations, I have a proven track record of professionalism and a strong work ethic. I look forward to the opportunity to discuss this Registered Nurse position. Thank you for reviewing my qualifications and I hope to hear from you soon.
