What to Include in Your Nursing Cover Letters?
Nursing is a very honorable and difficult job, just like all health-care professions. An applicant must possess a license to practice nursing. In order to do that, you must be a graduate of nursing and you must have taken all the nursing licensure exams and screenings that are mandated by the state laws.
If you are already a registered nurse, then mention such a fact on your cover letters. After that, you can mention where you did your nursing internship and who your supervisors were. State your nursing job experience if any and emphasize how your previous internship or job experiences have proved to you that you are indeed befitting for a nursing position. It will also benefit you if you mention the fact that you find the act of helping people a meaningful thing to do.
