Nursing Supervisor Cover Letter

A nurse supervisor is a head nurse who is responsible for various activities ranging from taking care of the patients as well as overseeing the nursing staff in the hospital. Some of the main duties include making work schedules and ensuring their compliance, assigning specific duties to the staff, inspecting the overall nursing work and ensuring quality nursing service.

The performance of nursing staff depends upon how well they are handled and supervised. A person at this post is a link between the doctor and the nurse. He reports directly to the doctor and is entrusted with the nursing duties. This means that they have to always be up to date with all the nursing records to present to the senior administrative staff. This report includes details like duty shifts, equipment required, supplies, etc. Education-wise, a nurse supervisor has to have a four years' degree in Bachelors of Nursing Science; he should also be registered with any of the national nurse boards and should have a practice license. Taking a NCLEX exam is a must for getting this license.

Subject- Application for the post of Nurse Supervisor

Dear Dr. Smith,

I recently saw your advertisement for an available job post of nursing supervisor at your hospital. This ad was posted on dated 21st Nov, '13. I would like to apply for the same.

My previous job was that of a nurse supervisor at the Faber Institute of Cardiology. There I was responsible for a nursing staff of thirty. Managing their time shifts, preparing work schedules, assigning them to respective patients and filing report to the admin were my key responsibilities there. My tenure lasted for 3 years at the Faber Institute of Cardiology during which I gained a lot of valuable experience in human recourse management and all the aspects of patient care. Before this I held the post of head nurse with Johnson Medical Centre where one of the key roles handled by me was to train the new nursing recruits in the day to day working of the staff.

It is because of these varied roles that I have gathered a good experience of 7 years in this field working with all kinds of people. I have learned to work and also get the work done even under the most stressful situations.

Education-wise, I have done my Bachelor in Medical Sciences and Diploma in Nursing. Along with this, I am licensed from the United States Board of Nurses Saying this, I am attaching my resume with relevant details for your consideration. I hope that my previous work and experience will prove me worthy of this post. Let me take this opportunity to say that if I get the job, the complete emphasis would be on improving further the patient care facility and increasing the nursing staff efficiency through the use of new and innovative practices.

Thanking you,

Yours Sincerely,

Emanuel Jones
