I am very eager to continue learning and was very interested in the role that you have advertised at the hospice as I have an interest in helping people at the end of their lives and making their time as best as I possibly can.
I have done some work experience in a hospice setting as part of my training and appreciate I have a lot more to learn but I am very keen to do this.
I am a very patient person, I have excellent communication skills and have good listening skills also. I feel that I would be of benefit to patients and would be able to put them at ease.
I am a very organised person who likes to make sure that I do all my jobs and paperwork straight away to avoid any problems, this is very important for the role of a nurse.
