Position Name: 
My name is Leah Holmes; I just graduated with my MSN from North Park University in Chicago, IL, as a Family Nurse Practitioner. I am originally from Nashville, but have been living and working as an ER nurse for the past 6 years in Chicago.

I have over 6 years of RN experience in a Level 1 Trauma, Pediatric Emergency Department. I consider my clinical experience primarily focused in pediatrics. I have been recently shadowing Nurse Practitioners in the ER during my final clinical rotations. The opportunity to work alongside Nurse Practitioners in the ER as enabled me to begin training and acquiring skills that will be essential as an APN. 
I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to talk and discuss opportunities that may be available. Thank you for your time. Below is my contact information- I look forward to speaking with you.
