This cover letter is another version of a CNA Cover Letter for those who don’t have a lot of experience in the field. This version of the CNA cover letter example focuses more on already established experience in training and helps to garner a strong relationship between the applicant and the interviewer.
It is a little stronger tone and departs from the 3-paragraph style. Instead, it creates 4 quick/short paragraphs that will hopefully entice the interviewer in reading all four of the paragraphs instead of skimming over it. Remember though, each paragraph needs to be short and to the point.
Also, if this is your first time reading one of our CNA cover letter examples, we recommend that you start with our article on how to construct a CNA Cover Letter, and then look at the sample cover letters in order.

CNA Cover Letter Sample Explanation and Instructions
1. Make sure to put that organization’s information here.
2. Again, include specific information for your certification process. If there is anything else to note, such as top marks, scores or awards, you should place them here.
3. If you add a sentence like this, then make sure you have a letter of recommendation from that organization.
4. Look for a specific accomplishment that that organization has received or is striving to accomplish. Again, you can find this on their “about us” page.
5. For this part, look at the qualities that were highlighted in your recommendation letter or look at the top qualities they are asking for in their job description.
6. Notice that the contact information isn’t inside the content. Therfore, you will need to put it in at the top of your heading. See our formatting section in our article about how to create a CNA cover letter.
Again, this CNA Cover Letter Sample was created to exemplify a stronger version of a CNA Cover Letter that doesn’t have as much experience. It will require coordination between your intern program and your letter of recommendation. But if done right, this could be the strongest form of CNA Cover Letter.
