Dear Hiring Committee:

I graduated from the College of San Mateo with an Associate's of Science degree in Nursing in May, 2011.  I am interested in job posting number SGMF-1201509 for the Registered Nurse Urgent Care position. I strongly believe that I could become a contributing and successful member of your nursing staff. From my resumé (attached), you will see that my experience matches your qualifications.


Through my student nurse clinical rotations at various Bay Area hospitals, I have attained experience in the following fields:  medical-surgical, cardiac telemetry, family birthing, pediatric and psychiatry.  I have cared for up to five patients, and have performed such nursing duties as:  multiple IV starts and therapy, dressing changes, various medication administration, and discharge teaching. These experiences have allowed me to increase my nursing skills while also providing a broader base of medical knowledge. I am continuing to broaden my nursing knowledge while continuing my education towards a BSN degree at San Francisco State University.


Through my seven years of employment as an Admitting Representative at Kaiser South San Francisco, I have greatly enhanced my interpersonal and verbal/written communication skills, and have a great grasp of inpatient hospital operations. I am also able to thrive in a fast-paced environment while managing multiple tasks simultaneously.
