Dear Ms. Smith:

Please accept this letter of application for your advertised position of staff nurse that appeared in the February 2013 issue of Nursing Magazine. As you can see from the attached resume, I have a strong background in clinical specialty area(s) nursing.

I have molded my career from its inception to achieve my goal of becoming a Registered Nurse in the U.S. My experience and education have provided me with excellent knowledge of patient assessment and treatment including medical surgical practices, acute patient care and patient relations. This, coupled with my attention to detail, organizational and communication skills will allow me to make a substantial contribution to St. Vincent Hospital.

I believe that a challenging environment such as yours will provide an excellent opportunity for me to best utilize my skills while contributing to the healthcare community, patients, and their families.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss with you personally how my skills and strengths can best serve your hospital. I look forward to hearing from you regarding an interview at your convenience. You may contact me at (011-63-123-4567) or by email at



Candice Domingo, RN
