Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],
I’d like to apply for the role of Certified Nursing Assistant at Harris Memorial Hospital. I’ve worked in hospitals and senior homes for over 6 years, and have been commended for my high-level care. I believe my health care certifications and considerable experience make me the ideal candidate for this role.
In my current position at Sunrise Senior Home, I’m responsible for the care of 15 elderly residents. My duties include helping with daily living and hygiene, as well as assisting with field trips and entertainment activities. I pride myself on establishing rapport with both residents and their families in order to offer sensitive emotional support that enables these vulnerable adults to live in comfort with dignity.
Several wards at Harris Memorial Hospital have recently installed new equipment to help bedridden patients. I’m confident using Gait Belts, Hoyer lifts, and EasyStands in compliance with OSHA and HIPAA guidelines. Also, I’m adept at noticing subtle physical and emotional changes in patients. When I received my Employee of the Month and CNA of the Year awards, my ability to increase patients’ morale was noted.
I’ve attached my resume for your review and would welcome the opportunity to discuss my skills and qualifications further at an interview. You can contact me at 410-842-0002 or email@example.com. Thank you for your consideration – I look forward to hearing from you.
