RE: Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)
Receiving my LPN certificate shortly, coupled with clinical experience in key areas of hospital operations, I’m a perfect match for the responsibilities you outlined for this position.
I bring many great assets to the table, although I’m new to the nursing industry. Working with children of various ages, and a term working with the elderly as a Medicaid caseworker (determining continuing eligibility requirements), were both great positions for me. I’ve always enjoyed working with people, and I’d like to continue doing just that within your MRDD facility.
Continuing my education, you’ll note that I possess a CPR certification, I hold a certificate for massage therapy, and I’m trained in craniosacral therapy and muscle energy techniques. I’m scheduled to take the NCLEX test in mid-November.
With a long track record of working with the elderly, youth, and now patients as required as part of the Miami Valley School of Practical Nursing training, I can easily conform to the expectations you hold for your staff. To discuss this further, or to answer questions about how my experiences can fulfill the high standards you uphold for your residence, contact me at (XXX) XXX-XXXX.
I look forward to discussing this opportunity with you.
