Dear Ms. Walsh:
In May 2006, I will graduate from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing.
As a teaching facility with a wide variety of clinical settings, your hospital offers the opportunity for me to
further develop my knowledge and skills and grow as a professional nurse. I would like to apply for a position
as a graduate nurse at The Hospital of the Medical College of Pennsylvania.
As my enclosed resume indicates, I pursued excellence in nursing studies as demonstrated by my academic
honors. My clinical experience and volunteer work have effectively prepared me to begin employment as a
graduate nurse. Seeing clients in their homes through my Visiting Nurse Association experience has given me
insight into the holistic needs of hospitalized clients so that they may successfully adapt and continue recovery
Thank you for giving my resume careful consideration. I am looking forward to meeting with you soon to
discuss possible employment with the Hospital of the Medical College of Pennsylvania.
