Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],
I would like to apply for the role of Certified Nursing Assistant at Harris Memorial Hospital. I have worked in hospitals and senior homes for over six years, and have been commended for the high level of care that I offer. I believe my healthcare certifications and considerable experience make me the ideal candidate for this role.
In my current position at Sunrise Senior Home, I am 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 vulnerable adults to live in comfort with dignity.
Several wards at Harris Memorial Hospital recently installed new equipment to help with the high number of bedridden patients. I am confident using Gait Belts, Hoyer lifts, and EasyStands in compliance with OSHA and HIPPA guidelines. In addition, I am 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 have attached my resume for your review and would welcome the opportunity to discuss my skills and qualifications further at interview. You can contact me at 410-842-0002 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your consideration – I look forward to hearing from you.
