Philosphy of Nursing

April 12, 2013

I am writing in regards to the registered nurse position available. I am currently employed at Lutheran Medical Center as a telemetry medical surgical nurse and I float on several units such as Emergency department, rehabilitation unit, stroke unit, and several other units.
I have had the opportunity to work in several large facilities, such as hospitals, nursing home, clinics, schools, day cares, and professional establishments. During my clinical experience I have instilled wonderful qualities that I will continue to carry throughout my nursing career. I am compassionate and dedicated to the care of my patients. Also, I am organized, articulate, and reliable with outstanding work ethics. I have the ability to work alone or as a team member.
I believe that the skills that I have acquired from my previous positions, experience and education has helped me to grow as an individual. This aids me in providing better care and service to consumers of healthcare. Therefore, I would be very useful and pertinent to your facility.
Attached you will find a copy of my resume. I look forward to meeting with you for an interview, so that I can become a potential employee of your facility.

Respectfully yours,

Keah C. Mclean-Garraway RN
