Letter of Recommendation for Employment

Student: Hermosillo Daniel

My contact with this student:

I have the pleasure of working with Daniel Hermosillo during the semester. I am his clinical, skills laboratory,
and theoretical instructor for NURS 356, Foundations of Nursing Care. This first semester course
integrates the principles of beginning medical-surgical nursing skills, theory, research, pathophysiology,
and pharmacology with clinical instruction at a long-term care/sub-acute facility. I have the opportunity to
observe Daniel in clinical practice, lecture, and lab settings.

Overall Evaluation: Daniel is the type of student who thinks through a question before immediately
answering. He demonstrates the ability to apply theoretical and skills lab concepts in the clinical setting.
He has strong writing and verbal skills. Daniel exhibits a warm and caring attitude with the residents at
our clinical setting, Arizona State Veterans Home in Tucson. He would be an excellent candidate for a
student nurse technician.
