Five years of acute care experience as a Registered Nurse BSN in Float pool . Floors include Medical, Telemetry, Surgical and Progressive Care. Committed to providing quality care, and maintaining a strong reputation for achieving high levels of patient satisfaction. Clinical Nurse II Dear Hiring Manager, I am writing to inform you of my strong interest in the Clinical Nurse II position . As one of the top 10 hospitals in the nation, and the best in California, I have always respected and admired UC Davis Medical Center for their compassion for patients and hi-tech approach to health through innovative educational and awareness programs, preventative services, and ground-breaking research. As a float pool nurse with five years of work experience on Medical, Telemetry, Surgical and Progressive care floors, I have gained flexibility working in different clinical settings. I would like to join the diverse and vibrant community of providers at UCD as an RN, and ultimately gain credentials to train on other various units in the hospital. As a service excellence advisor in 2012-2013, I engaged all levels of hospital staff in group workshops. This in turn improved the interactive process and communication between hospital staff and patients, which led to an increase in the hospitals survey scores. Along with my clinical knowledge and strong work ethic, I know the importance of prioritizing and managing my time efficiently while adapting to daily fluctuating and stressful situations. As a system that holistically coordinates patients' needs from preventative care to outpatient care, UCD has set the bar for how health care should be practiced correctly. I am confident I can contribute my strong work experience, compassion for patients, and skills towards helping patients and advancing health worldwide. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps in the application process.
