In 2007, I completed a clinical rotation at XYZ Hospital under the supervision of Sally Right, RN. The program’s exceptional pediatric program and provision of life-enriching children’s activities stood out to me. I would like to be part of this caring team.

Please consider my credentials:

  • BSN, RN and certifications in ACLS and PALS.
  • Extensive experience caring for newborns, infants and children of all ages, with a history of top-rated performance in pediatrics, NICU and PICU practice areas.
  • Proficiencies in various EMR and EHR patient records and charting systems.
  • Outstanding communication skills with colleagues, patients and families.
  • The ability to support and collaborate with members of interdisciplinary medical teams.

I share XYZ Hospital’s commitment to quality care and would welcome the chance for an interview. You can reach me at (555) 555-5555 or at ln@somedomain.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
