Sample Licensed Practical Nurse Cover Letter

When writing a licensed practical nurse cover letter be sure the hiring manager knows you have a recognized license that is current in the state and country where you wish to work. Also include your experience level and ability to perform simple as well as complex medical procedures under the supervision of either a professional Registered Nurse (RN) or a physician. All licensed practical nurse cover letters should provide details about what you can bring to the job that may separate you from other applicants.

Dear Mr. Butterworth:

When I saw your posting for a licensed practical nurse, I decided to write to you immediately. I have three years of experience with other licensed practical nurses administering medications, performing measurements, keeping records, and helping with patient care, surgery, first aid, CPR, etc.

I can assure you I would be a committed employee. I have good patient relations skills, and I have a sincere interest in the well being of those in my care.

Would you like to meet to talk over this job? I'd enjoy speaking with you in person. Please call me on my cell phone: 785-897-3434 to set up an interview at your convenience. Thank you for considering my cover letter and my qualifications.
