Sample School Nurse Cover Letter

A school nurse cover letter can be the very document that lands an applicant the job he or she wants. Be sure to include a list of your professional skills, previous experience, training and licensing. All school nurse cover letters should include any pertinent information that will give the applicant the edge, especially in a competitive market where there are more nurses than jobs.

Dear Ms. Parker:

We met about three years ago when you were recruiting school nurses at a college job fair. At the time I had just accepted a position on the nursing staff of Oak Grove Hospital. But today, as the mother of a toddler, and one in need of a job with regular hours in a less stressful atmosphere, I am looking for a position as a school nurse.

I'm writing this cover letter to inquire about such a position. Are there any openings available to someone with my experience level and qualifications? I have my state license and good references from my supervisor at the hospital.

If you'd like to meet me in person to go over the duties, I'll be happy to accommodate your schedule. Please phone me at 695-908-8756 and give me a time and date that works for you. I really appreciate being considered for such a job.
