Position Name: 
I am a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner who recently graduated from Vanderbilt University’s School of Nursing Pediatric Nurse Practitioner-Primary Care program.  I am currently searching for a position in a general pediatric primary care clinic setting.   
I possess four years of experience as a pediatric nurse and have excelled in my studies as a pediatric nurse practitioner.  I have excellent communication and relationship skills, as well as critical thinking skills.  I am an eager learner and an extremely hard-worker who is interested in deepening my knowledge in the field of pediatrics.   
Also, I have a unique background as a trained health-supportive chef.  I have been able to incorporate this knowledge and training into my pediatric practice in many diverse clinical situations.  I feel my skill set, experience in pediatrics, and personality would be an excellent addition to any pediatric clinic.
