Application Letter for DOH RN HEALS (Registered Nurses for Health Enhancement and Local Service)

 

Writing a good application letter and of course, an impressive resume, are two of the keys to get hired in a nursing job. As I was browsing the comments to this website, I came across with this well-written application form. I am giving all the credits to Ms. Maricel Villanueva.
