Dear Susan, I’m very excited to write about my interest in the position of Charge Nurse at De-stress Healthcare published in the New York Times on 15th January. With my 4years of experience diversified in Paediatric, OT, and ICU departments, I possess a reasonably good experience for this position.
After graduating and receiving my RN license, I hoped to work for all types of care units at healthcare centers. This kept me on my toes to take every opportunity to serve every patient I could. My major experiences have been in nursing the pediatric, OT, and ICU units while I have had a chance to work with various other departments (Cardiology, Neurology, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, and Oncology) whenever an emergency arose.
Working in departments of variety has taught me to prioritize and organize my work schedules between departments and patient conditions. It wasn’t easy to allocate my time between patients in scenarios, but I managed to do it well through the delegation of the task to junior residents in an organized manner. On numerous occasions, I have been assigned as the Charge Nurse in the unavailability of the Charge Nurse. While I’m passionate about caring for patients, I’m also very good at operations management which I have acquainted myself with through constantly taking up challenging assignments on duty.
Working as a Charge Nurse at De-stress Healthcare would be an exhaustive utilization of my talent which I seek to improvise on throughout my nursing career.
I would love to speak to you personally and discuss how I can serve and make nursing more efficient at De-Stress Healthcare. Please reach me at 9876549876 for more information anytime.
Thanks for taking the time to read my application.
Sincerely, Richard Hudson

I’m writing in regard to working as an RN at your facility. After reading about the facility I realized that we both share common goals in understanding care and practicing compassion. Using the knowledge and experiences I’ve gained through clinical and class I would instantly become of use to your medical team.
During my clinical rotation, I learned a variety of skills that I was able to apply to my nursing practice. I have worked in a fast-paced demanding environment for 3 years where I learned how to organize and prioritize my tasks and be efficient. I also practiced Venipuncture extensively. After 2 years of patient monitoring and reading EHR and EMR records and charts I was tasked with the duties of a Charge nurse.
As a Charge Nurse, I cared for my patients, kept records of their health, monitored patient status, delegated patient care to RNs, and scheduled their time of duty to meet busy hour demands at the hospital. I also trained 10 student nurses on duty and a handful of residents in patient care.
Earlier this year I was presented with the first tragedy in my life. My grandfather had epistaxis which wouldn’t stop bleeding. He eventually ended up in the emergency room. Diagnostic tests were run and the diagnosis was acute myeloid leukemia. This affected my family and me extremely because our grandfather was not only a mentor but also somebody we strived to be like. He was admitted to the hospital where I work and within two weeks he passed away. During his stay at the hospital, I took this opportunity to exercise my nursing skills. I assisted with meals, and bedpan duties, but most importantly I was there for him. Using my time on the “other side of the bed” showed me that compassion and empathy from caregivers make a tremendous difference to patients and their families. This has motivated me to make my prime goal as a nurse to show compassion to my patients. I’m going to do this by understanding the care I give and show compassion while doing so.
My enclosed resume details my experience as a nurse. In case you need information please don’t hesitate to contact me at 555-555-5555.
Thank you for taking the time and consideration!
Sincerely, Rosalie Buckner
