Dear Mr Costa
Re: Graduate nurse program
Thanks for your advice over the phone earlier this week. As a new graduate nurse from the University of Tasmania, please accept my application for St Joseph Hospital's new graduate program. I am an enthusiastic candidate with all the skills necessary to join this program and contribute to patient care at the hospital.
During my clinical placements at Launceston General Hospital, Springdale Aged Care Home and North-West Regional Hospital, I learned a range of nursing skills on the job, while also developing the ability to think on my feet and problem-solve. I especially enjoyed my rotation on the emergency ward and hope to one day specialise in this area.
I work well as part of a team, communicate well, and have excellent attention to detail. I strive to offer the best customer service to patients and always ensure safe practice on the job. The deputy director of nursing at Launceston General Hospital was especially impressed with my skills on my placement there and offered me a professional reference.
I received excellent grades at university, including the Florence Nightingale Award for my marks in pharmacology. I achieved high marks in all my subjects and have an excellent academic record (see transcript attached).
I'm eager to find out more about the new graduate program and the employment opportunities at St Joseph's Hospital. I look forward to hearing from you.
