Specific Department
Attn: Jane Doe

Anytown, PA 12345

Ms. Doe,

I will be graduating from Shenandoah University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in May 2017. I am interested in
the Registered Nurse position in your Operating Room advertised on your website. I am applying for this position
because I enjoy the autonomy and critical thinking skills that are required for this environment.

Please review my enclosed resume, which highlights my skills and accomplishments. I feel that I would be an excellent
fit for General Hospital. My experiences include providing patient care in the pre-hospital setting, as well as providing
patient care in various departments of the hospital as part of my clinical practicum; culminating with my senior
preceptorship practicum in the Emergency Department.

I have demonstrated various roles in leadership, independence, and proficiency in my past career. I was responsible for
timely, proper documentation and the maintenance of detail oriented state records, equipment calibrations, supervising
employees, and have served on the board of directors of emergency services organizations.

Thank you for taking the time to review my resume and qualifications. If you have any questions please feel free to
contact me via phone at 717-552-3004 or e-mail at dougshaw_jr@yahoo.com. I look forward to speaking with you.

Sincerely,



Douglas G. Shaw, Jr.
