Dear Dr. Davis:

Please accept my application for the Patient care technician position advertised on The Daily Times on November 11, 2016. My resume is also enclosed for your review.

I recently graduated from the Salter School of Nursing and Allied Health’s 900-hour Patient Care Technician Program. At Salter Nursing, I was professionally trained in providing skilled clinical care for patients. I am ready to enter this healthcare profession with dignity and compassion. I successfully completed a 180-hour clinical externship at the practice of Dr. Hartfort in Manchester, NH. If you wish to review the evaluation I received from Dr. Hartfort, I would be happy to send it with my transcript from Salter Nursing. I am passionate about healthcare and providing the highest quality of health care for patients!

If you’d like to give me the opportunity to meet with you, I will be happy to answer any questions you may have of my training and internship experience.

I look forward to hearing from you shortly. I will call you next week to ask if we may arrange a time to meet in person.

Thank you for your consideration.



Theresa Shapiro
