Mr. Jordan Schubert,
Hiring Manager
Select-A-Nurse, Inc.
452 Vine Street
Landsville, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Schubert:

Thank you for posting the opening for a private duty nurse on JobBankUSA.com. This is a position I feel equipped to fill. I am a registered nurse in good standing and have had three years of general duty nursing at Belmont Community Hospital. Now, however, I prefer to be part of a team of private duty nurses treating just one individual at a time as he or she recovers from illness, accident, or injury.

I would like to begin work November 1 or sooner, so I was pleased to see that you want to hire someone for that start date. Could I schedule a meeting with you to go over my resume and to learn more about how your company screens patients and fills requests for private duty nursing?

I'll be happy to come to your office any weekday morning before noon. Please call me on my cell phone: 675-980-9898 so we can arrange a meeting time that works for you. I appreciate your reading my cover letter and considering me for this job. Thank you for your time.
