Healthcare Cover Letter Dos and Don'ts

Spice Up Your Writing

Effective cover letters are a little different from all the others but still straightforward, experts say. For example, the boring, traditional way to begin a cover letter is: “I am writing in response to your advertisement for a nurse and have enclosed my resume for your review.” The better opener could be: “Your ad on Monster for a nurse captured my attention and motivated me to learn more about this opportunity.” Then describe how your qualifications match the employer’s needs.
