CRNA Cover Letter

When you’re ready to start applying for nurse anesthetist jobs and CRNA positions, make sure you’re providing your prospective employer with a strong cover letter. Many nurse anesthetist jobs require a cover letter, updated resume, references, and an in-person interview as part of the application process. You can either apply for the job directly from a job board or attract a recruiter who can place you in a position that will be a suitable match. The cover letter is one of the first things a prospective employer will look at when they are reviewing your application materials so you need to make sure yours truly stands apart from other applicants.

Here are some essential things you need to include in a CRNA cover letter:

  1. Full name and contact details. Make sure to include your name, address, phone number, and email address at the top of the cover letter. Printing this letter on formal letterhead with your contact info in the header will make this appear more professional.
  2. A strong interest in the nurse anesthetist job. Starting out your cover letter with a statement that demonstrates why you have an interest in this position and what your experience is within this line of work can be a great starting point. Remember your goal is to hook the reader and make them remember you. Explain that you have recently graduated from a school’s nursing program and are committed to growing within this industry. Talk about your passion for helping people and your commitment to the nursing field. Include anything that shows your genuine  interest in succeeding in this role and your commitment to growing in this field.
  3. Recommendations for this position. If a professor or colleague recommended you to this position, make sure you include that information within the first paragraph or two of your CRNA cover letter. This can be a powerful addition to your cover letter and really make yours stand out from other applicants. Include the full name of the referrer and talk briefly about your relationship.
  4. Create a bullet list of your nursing-related successes. You will want to talk about our abilities and practical experience but a list of accomplishments and experiences can be difficult to read. Make a bullet list of experiences instead. Keep each bulleted item short – just one sentence each – and be sure to list all highlights of your educational career, accomplishments, awards, and any practical experience you have. The goal here is to communicate some of the key experiences and qualities that make you the perfect candidate for this position.
  5. Mention advanced skills and training completed. If you have completed a CRNA training program in some of the latest technological equipment used in the industry, are multilingual, or have advanced skills and experiences, make sure you also share these within the cover letter. Explain why these qualities would be valuable to the employer and how you might use your skills in the position you are applying for.
