To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this reference letter at the request of Carmen Potter. She has
asked me to write this general letter which she may show to any prospective
employer who ask her for references.
I have known Mrs Potter for over eight years. She has been my preceptor and
mentor while I was in school and professionally as a nurse.She as helped me to
acknowlege my potential as a great nurse when I was a new graduate. I was scared
to take over the trauma patients as a new graduate in the Emergency Room but as
my preceptor she insisted that I take any trauma patient that came in the door.
I thought she was being mean but as I grew in knowledge and good practice I
realized she was helping me get over my fear and to rely on using proper nursing
practices and procedures to become a quick thinking, critical thinking Trauma
Nurse. I am glad that Mrs. Potter chose me to precept as a new nurse; because of
her persistance and encouragement I celebrate being a Registered Nurse.
I conclude with saying that Mrs. Potter will be a great and valuable asset to
your establishment as a teacher. Her skills as being a patient, firm and
detailed oriented preceptor makes a the ideal personnel as a teacher.
