Dear Mr. Smith,

I would like to inform you that I am resigning from the position of Staff Nurse at General Hospital. My last day of employment will be May 23rd, 2019. As per the policy of the hospital, I am giving you six weeks’ notice.

I understand the challenges that my departure may bring. To assist with the transition, I will help with the hiring and training of my replacement if needed.

Thank you for allowing me to thrive in an environment that is often stressful yet incredibly rewarding. I wish nothing but the best for you and the staff at General Hospital.
