To whom it may concern,

I am writing to formally express my interest in your Nurse Residency Program for 2016. In pursuit of my
passion to provide caring, personalized, quality patient care, I believe that I attain the values and skills
applicable for your facilitys consideration. My recent experience includes over 900 clinical hours, where
I have strived to develop a foundation for providing extraordinary patient care through a supportive,
compassionate, and education-focused environment.

Prior to my application for this position, I have enhanced my distinction by striving to persistently
develop my clinical knowledge and skills at an optimal level. My undergraduate pursuits include
participation in the University of Arizona Honors College, where I received several Deans List
recognitions. I further serve as BSN Student Representative on the Research and Clinical Scholarship
Committee at the University of Arizona, and am an active member of the Beta Mu chapter of Sigma Theta
Tau International (STTI). In efforts to maintain extracurricular excellence, I hold a primary position as
Volunteer/Involvement Coordinator for the Pima County Pathfinders 4H Club, Southern Arizona Quarter
Horse Association, and Arizona Quarter Horse Association. Furthermore, I am now completing my
undergraduate studies in just over three total years. Each of these factors has assisted in developing my
noteworthy diligence, persistence, and time management skills.

In addition to my prior clinical experience and qualifications, I firmly believe in the utilization of
evidence-based practice techniques, as it is consistent with the values of your facility. My recent pursuits
include preparing a best practice recommendation on interventions to improve nurses health and
wellbeing, subsequently improving patient outcomes. Further personal endeavors include attaining, and
presenting, clinical knowledge at the Western institute of Nursing (WIN) conference this past April 2015.
My efforts aim to not only utilize the safest and highest quality practice throughout my RN career, but to
challenge current practice as a means for providing the most optimal patient care feasible. I thereby
believe your facility and myself maintain consistent values regarding the utilization of research to
improve practice, further exemplifying my compatibility for the Nurse Residency Program that is offered.

In cumulating my passion, values, and clinical expertise, I believe that your facility and myself are of a
strong mutual candidacy. I am committed to pursuing all opportunities to advance nursing care and
improve patient outcomes throughout my career. I thereby welcome the opportunity to discuss with you
personally how my knowledge and skills can best serve this position.
