Dear Mr. Nunes,
I am writing to you with the interest of applying for a position as a Respiratory Therapist. My connection with
O’Connor Hospital is very strong due to my ongoing interest and involvement in the community as well as my
clinical experiences at the hospital. As per your suggestion, I am applying for the above mentioned position.
As student at Foothill College in the Respiratory Therapy Program, I completed two rotations at
O’Connor; from September to December 2003, and second in ICU from January to March 2005. In
ICU, Mr. Bob Kavanaugh, BS, RRT acted as my Preceptor. He shared his clinical experiences with
me to further enhanced my skills and knowledge, and he encouraged me to apply for the position.
For one year, I worked as a Respiratory Care Assistant performing EKG’s. In 2004, I worked for Kaiser Hospital
as an Equipment Technician where I cleaned and set-up ventilators and stocked E-size Oxygen tanks. During
this time, I also attended courses as a full-time student, worked part-time on campus, and continued to serve my
community as a volunteer. In spite of a very demanding program, I have managed to maintain a 3.4 grade point
average. I have excellent time management skills, and I am able to multi-task to get the job done. You will find
me to be very caring, sensitive, responsible, detail-oriented, and a good team player.
My knowledge of Respiratory Therapy, good grades, and good clinical evaluations reflect that I am
qualified for the position. My experiences and understanding of patient needs, combined with many
volunteer hours, will definitely compliment the profession of Respiratory Therapy.
Enclosed, please find my resume for your review. I feel confident that my knowledge and interpersonal
skills would be an asset and make me an ideal candidate for this position. If you have any questions,
please feel free to contact me. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
