Case Study Coordinator of Nursing and Midwifery – Resume, Cover Letter, and Statement by Jennifer C.


As a very experienced senior nurse, this client is enthusiastic about leading the profession and committed to service in rural and remote health care, and this position is her next dream job. The application required a resume, tailored cover letter and three-page statement addressing the following key selection criteria:


  1. Eligible for registration in the category of Registered Nurse by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.
  2. Demonstrated record of achievement in leadership and organisational development at a senior nursing management level within a complex, dynamic health service environment.
  3. Demonstrated contemporary knowledge of professional issues and trends, with a focus on rural and remote services delivery and health reform.
  4. Demonstrated excellent interpersonal, verbal and written communication skills and ability to cultivate teamwork.
  5. Demonstrated well developed analytical, financial, strategic management and project management skills.
  6. Current C Class Drivers Licence and an ability and willingness to travel, including overnight stays away from home.
  7. Demonstrated experience in the application of continuous quality improvement principles, including managing change and the implementation and evaluation of integrated clinical governance strategies.
  8. Current knowledge of legislative obligations for Equal Opportunity, Disability Services and Occupational Safety and Health, and how these impact on employment and service delivery.


  1. Possession of or working towards post-graduate qualification in Management or related field of study.
  2. Significant experience in rural and remote nursing management and practice.

 Addressing so many criteria within page limits is always a challenge when the client offers rich experiences to report on. However, writing in a statement format allows for the flexibility of using one example to thoroughly address several criteria, and this was the approach taken here. It is a pleasure to produce a complete package, including a resume, cover letter, and statement for a leadership role. It offers the opportunity to get to know the client, understand their key strengths, and present a targeted and thorough picture of the client as a successful applicant.
