This letter has been written in reference to your advertisement regarding the need for a member of your nursing staff in the Sunday magazine of last week.

Moreover, I completed a diploma in personal nursing. So, you can employ me as a member of your nursing team or as a personal nurse, I can do both. To me serving humanity is an ultimate goal, giving back to society and helping the needy.
While being a nurse, one must have a polite tone and a kind heart to treat his/her patient well. I believe this can cure half of the disease. Many times, the full attention of the nurse and the proper care to the patient does wonders and work like a magic. Therefore, I believe nursing is more of a sacred act than a mere job.
