Dear Sir or Madam:

With the enclosed resume, I would like to make you aware of my background as a Licensed Practical Nurse with exceptional organizational, communication, and patient relations skills who has excelled in a track record of accomplishment in obstetrics/gynecology and medical/surgical, and geriatric nursing in challenging environments worldwide.

As you will see, I have completed the Practical Nurse and Medical Specialist course from the Academy of Health Sciences at Fort Harbor, WA. I have supplemented these programs with numerous additional military training programs, including the Medical Proficiency Training Program, Algorithm-Directed Troop Medical Care Course, Deployable Medical Systems New Equipment Training, Medical Management of Chemical Casualties, and Hazard Communication Program.

Currently working as a Licensed Practical Nurse providing medical-surgical care on a 20-bed intermediate care ward at a busy 296-bed DEPMEDS-equipped Combat Support Hospital, I supervise and train 13 personnel at the Fort Harbor Medical Inprocessing Center, which handles more than 1,200 soldiers monthly. I also oversee the security and maintenance of more than $300,000 worth of medical equipment, immunization medicines, and expendable supplies. On my own initiative, I have organized and developed a Breast Health Awareness Program for females inprocessing to Fort Harbor, and I served as a phlebotomist for the Operation Life Gift Bone Marrow Drive.

My earlier nursing experience was focused in obstetrics and gynecology. In Korea, I served on a 42-bed mixed ward comprising a 17-bed newborn nursery, a six-bed labor and delivery unit, and a 19-bed obstetrics and gynecology unit. In that position, I supervised a staff of three, acted as Preceptor to newly assigned personnel, and took on additional responsibilities as Infection Control Officer for the Ward, Fire & Safety Officer, and Time Schedule Coordinator. At Fort Port, I served as a Licensed Practical Nurse in the 25-bed obstetrics and gynecology ward of a busy regional medical center.

If you can use an experienced nursing professional with a strong background in obstetrics and gynecology and exceptional patient relations skills, I hope you will contact me to suggest a time when we might meet.  

Sincerely,                                 

Irene Fisher
