To the DNP Admissions Committee at UXX,
I recommend my colleague XXXX for your distinguished DNP Program at XXXX University. My name is XXXX, and I have served as a nursing supervisor for the last 20 years for the XX Department of Public Safety. I first met Nurse XXXX as a nursing supervisor at XXXX Correctional Hospital in XXX in 2007. This correctional hospital is known locally as the former site of the XXXX Sanatorium for the Treatment of Tuberculosis. I served as Nurse XXXX’s direct supervisor since I was the lead nurse appointed to our shift.
I worked directly with Nurse XXXX for approximately five years at XXXX Correctional Hospital until the hospital closed in 2012, and we transferred to our current place of employment, XXXX Correctional, where I continue to serve as a nurse supervisor and have the great privilege of working alongside Nurse XXXX. What I find most impressive about XXXX is that she never settles for the status quo but always comes up with new ideas about making our patients as comfortable as possible. She is always willing to go that extra mile for her patients, and I admire her very much.
Nurse XXXX is meticulous and conscientious, always striving to provide excellent patient care and service. She excels in teamwork building, always maintaining the best relations with her colleagues; she is loved and dependent upon on our floor. Constantly communicating effectively and appropriately with her peers, staff, and patients, Nurse XXXX has always been consistently professional. Thus, I feel strongly that she has much to contribute to a DNP Program.
