Dear Mr. Johnson —

Being a nurse is always something I've wanted to do. From being a little girl, when I broke my arm, and having the most wonderful nurse in the world take care of me. To then growing up and realizing how much of an impact that had on me. I understand the role required of an LPN. From doing on-going assessments of residents. To checking physical health of our patients. I comprehend the job functions and look forward to giving our patients the experience that I had as a child. Here are some of the things I've been able to do as a previous LPN:

Looked over more than 30 active patients in the cancer ward during 2012.
Monitored and documented all vital signs for patients to assist with physicians.
Ensured that all duties of the licensed staff were being performed according to state and safety protocol.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
