Dear Mr. Smith,
As a Licensed Registered Nurse with five years of related experience, including public school nursing, I have great interest in your opening for a School Nurse.
For the past two school years, I have been employed at Phelps Central School, providing routine and emergency health services to the staff and school population of 1000+ students. In addition, I gained experience in school nursing on a substitute basis with your district as well as Manchester-Shortsville.
In these roles, I have been able to apply and hone my generalist skills, most notably in assessment, emergency care, and health counseling. Notable accomplishments in my current position include
- Completion of School Nurses Orientation Program.
- Training in Section 504 regulations.
- Automated External Defibrillator Training and Certification, as well as involvement in school policy development for defibrillator use and placement selection; I also manage the equipment maintenance program.
- Management of student attendance using a custom software application.
As a lifelong resident of Canandaigua and parent of school-aged children, I have been actively involved in the community and the school for more than a decade. I believe this offers me a unique perspective and understanding—of the environment in which I would work, of the individuals receiving care and their families, and of the impact to our community.
A collaborative professional, I am both dedicated and visionary. I will use my clinical and personal skills in partnership with the administration to support the school’s mandate to provide and maintain a healthy and safe environment for its students and employees.
It is my hope that we can meet to discuss your School Nurse opening and my background in greater detail. I will follow up this letter and resume with a call to your office but invite you to contact me anytime at 555-0000.
Thank you for your consideration and time.
