Dear Hiring Manager,

I am writing to apply for the Advanced Nurse Practitioner position currently open at the Mayo Clinic, Minnesota. I am an experienced Registered Nurse with nine years of experience in the medical field dispensing various nurse duties. My current work as an Advanced Practice Nurse with the Johns Hopkins Hospital involves performing nurse duties such as interpreting a range of routine clinical procedures and diagnostic tests, patient observation, medicine dispensing and making independent critical decisions where precedents do not exist without recourse to colleagues among other responsibilities.

I am committed to constant learning to equip myself with the latest research and technology and new treatments being established in nursing to stay current and develop my career. Additionally, I am competent in technology use and can digitally keep patient and nursing procedure records using a laptop or computer. I have continuously received recognition for my effective communication skills as I effectively listen to and understand patient concerns and patient’s family members for conclusive evaluations of the patient’s condition to establish effective intervention plans. My patients often appreciate my bedside manners and generally compassionate attitude. I would be honoured to contribute my skills and attributes to the healthcare community at the Mayo Clinic as an Advanced Practice Nurse.

I look forward to enhancing teamwork by being a role model for my colleagues by displaying high integrity and nursing ethics at all times to enhance nursing and patient outcomes. I believe my skills and attributes will lessen the stress of handling medical issues and promote a nurturing attitude in all co-workers.
