Dear Sir/Madam:

I believe that I have the combined clinical expertise and nursing management skills that
would qualify me as an ideal candidate for the PACU Nurse Educator opening that is
posted in the Human Resources Building at Shady Grove Hospital.

I am a dedicated professional capable of educating clients and working effectively with
physicians, nurses, laboratory and professional specialty groups and can offer more than
14 years of combined responsible experience in the health care field. My health care
experience ranges from Staff Nurse to Nursing Supervisor to a Nurse Educator/Clinical
Instructor and Liposuction/Cosmetic Surgery.

I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing and my graduate studies have focused on
Business Management. My experience encompasses a sound knowledge of nursing,
quality assurance programs and in-service education programs. Throughout my career, I
have worked both independently and as part of a team on studies involving nursing
research trends and development, NCLEX RN and LPN State Board Review, PACU and
Recovery Care, staffing the nursing shortage, health care training, nursing education,
cardiology, sickle-cell anemia, diabetes and oncology.

I can be contacted at the above address, or at 206-888-6328 (Voice Mail and 24/7 E-Fax)
to arrange a mutually convenient time for a meeting. I am very interested in joining the
Clinical Nursing and Education/Recruiting Team at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital and
hope to speak with you soon.

Thank you for your consideration.


Maxine Ellis
