Dear Ms. Elaine Nakamura,

I am applying for the position of Hospital Social Worker with Centennial Peaks Hospital and my credentials match the requirements in your posting.

I have a master’s degree in social work and I completed the required hours of training through an internship where I provided counsel for patients under the supervision of a professional. I am certified and I have a license to practice in this state. I have the experience and training needed to provide services to patients with serious and sometimes terminal illnesses and diseases.

I have the ability to assist other professionals with the discharge process by explaining policies and procedures to the patients and their families. I can also help patients make arrangements for in-home care or arrange for them to move to a different facility if necessary. I can also provide them with resources that can help them get the care they need.

I possess excellent problem solving and decision-making skills along with the ability to manage my time wisely. I can keep all documents and patient records organized and updated. I also have the means to travel to different areas to visit discharged patients to follow up and see how they are doing.

While this can be a very emotional career, it is also a very rewarding one and I have the compassion, patience and empathy needed to help these patients understand and cope with their medical conditions.

I am looking forward to meeting with you in person to talk about the details of this position and you can reach me by calling (222)-410-6665.
