Dear Ms Hartford
Re: Enrolled Nurse position, Ref: 5512
I am writing to express my interest in the position of enrolled nurse, as advertised on SEEK.com.au. I am an experienced endorsed enrolled nurse currently working with Meadowlands Carers, an agency providing aged care services to various residences throughout the Sydney region.
I am a conscientious and dedicated individual with a passion for nursing and a commitment to providing the highest quality of care to the elderly. I am experienced and qualified in administering medications, taking patient measurements, calibrating equipment, wound management, cardiac monitoring, cannulation, catheter care, and helping patients to feed, bathe, go to the toilet and conduct their daily activities with dignity and comfort. I also update electronic records and patient databases, and learn new programs quickly. I possess a strong understanding of aged care standards and ACFI documentation, and follow strict protocols as I assist patients and medical staff at each facility.
Working on various assignments has allowed me to develop and demonstrate my ability to adapt quickly to new environments and communicate effectively with a diverse range of patients and colleagues. I get along well with others and work productively in a team environment. I have a reputation for displaying empathy and patience, being organised and efficient, and communicating well with patients and their families. I speak Cantonese and Mandarin and have a facility for communicating with people from non-English speaking backgrounds.
If given the opportunity to join the Wattle Grove team, I am positive that I could make a valuable contribution. With my strong work ethic and clinical skills, positive attitude, energy and enthusiasm, I believe I would be an ideal fit and would also benefit from the supportive environment you provide. I am registered with AHPRA and have medication endorsement.
Thank you for considering my application and I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you further about the role.
