Cover Letter

With fourteen years of nursing experience I have worked in a variety of settings including most recently breast cancer, telemetry/craniotomy step-down unit, critical care, PACU, and cosmetic dermatology.  I am skilled as a safe, efficient, and effective Nurse Practitioner with a natural and humble leadership style. My specialty training includes ACLS, PALS, sterile procedures, and breast cancer screening, diagnosis, and consultation. 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 full-time Nurse Practitioner position within your organization where my safe practice and compassionate style make me the exceptional choice for this opportunity.
