Dr. Peter Madsen
Head of Human Resources
Pater Noster Hospital Centre

Pittsburg, CA, 94565


Dear Doctor Madsen,


As a freshly graduated Registered Nurse, I was thrilled to see an opening for a Staff Nurse with the Pediatric Ward at the Pater Noster Hospital Center. Even though it’s the very outset of my professional career, I’ve already had an opportunity to provide compassionate bedside care to child patients during my numerous shadowing programs and two internships.


I’m aware you pay particular attention to top standards of patient care. And it so happens I received some of the highest scores (96%) in my post-internship evaluation, as well as five commendation letters from the child patients’ parents. Apart from developing my nursing skills, my previous experience offered me a chance to: 

  • Carry out patient care in a 25-bed unit as assigned by the supervisor.
  • Cooperate with other units thereby increasing my awareness of various cross-functional challenges.
  • Take part in 2 community initiatives to raise the awareness of health-related issues.


Since both the ability to offer top-class nursing skills and involvement in community outreach will be central to the position, I know I can bring in a lot of fresh insights to the team along with my energy and passion for helping others.

Could we schedule a call or meeting after the weekend to discuss how my skills and passion can be put to great use as part of the nursing staff?

PS—I'm also eager to tell you about my commitment to continued professional development and the additional certifications I’m pursuing at the moment.
