Cover Letter

With fifteen years of nursing experience I have worked in a variety of settings including most recently breast cancer in a FNP role, telemetry/craniotomy step-down unit, critical care, PACU, and cosmetic dermatology in a RN role.  I am skilled as a safe, efficient, and effective Nurse Practitioner with a natural and humble leadership style. My specialty training includes Family Nurse Practitioner, sterile procedures, and breast cancer screening, diagnosis, and consultation including breast ultrasound. I am continually working diligently to improve my education and skills. I completed the Master's of Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner program at Drexel University in September, 2014. I also stay current by completing continuing education through various professional organizations and enroll in additional training opportunities. My objective is to apply for a Nurse Practitioner position within the Navy Reserves to have the opportunity to provide care to our service men and women, as well as humanitarian health care services.
