I am a Registered Nurse with 18 years of experience in a multitude of areas. For 12 years I worked in a
hospital setting, gaining much experience and knowledge taking care of patients with minor illnesses to
the patient who was critically ill. I also had the pleasure of caring for patients from a diverse population. For
the past two years I have worked as a Hemodialysis Nurse/Charge Nurse. I enjoyed this field of nursing
very much. My goal is to return to school one day and obtain a Nurse Practioner license. I am looking
for a fulltime position or a part-time position if it includes health benefits. I promise I would be an asset to
your company. I am a very hard worker, dedicated employee, experienced and compassionate nurse.
