Dear Ms Graham,
Please find attached my resume in response to your recent advertisement on the Dayjob.com website for a Nurse Manager.
I can be that vital link between Senior Hospital Executives and direct care nurses that is fundamental to the successful running of a healthcare unit. I am that person you are looking for who has the ability to combine their clinical skills and leadership abilities to deliver the highest quality and safest nursing care available.
As a true professional I always put the care of my patients in front of anything else, correspondingly I am not afraid to make tough decisions that may not be popular with some staff members. Furthermore, I am very proud of the work I do and keen to be part of a medical team that is committed to looking after the health of its patients.
Since March 2013 I have held a position similar to the one you are currently trying to fill. In my role I have full responsibility for nursing in the absence of the Chief Nursing Officer. I am essentially in charge of directing, supervising and evaluating the work activities of all personnel in the department.
During my long career I have gained experience of all the following competencies that you are looking for in a candidate;
- Providing daily coaching, counselling and mentoring to junior nurses and always being there for them when needed.
- Compiling daily and monthly performance reports.
- Developing patient care programs, policies, and procedures.
Although my attached resume my show a detailed breakdown of my technical skills, what it may not show is my ability to manage multiple competing demands while maintaining a calm professional demeanour.
If required I can provide you with excellent references from my current and previous employers. I hope that the information contained in this letter and the attached resume will assist my application and encourage you to invite me to an interview.
