Nursing Manager

Dear Ms. Leroy:

I am writing to inform you of my decision to resign from the position of Certified Nursing Assistant from St. Louis Family Health Clinic. Please consider this letter as a two week’s notice (as per our contract) starting from today, effective August 17.

It makes me sad to leave such rewarding job that I have identified with for many years. I have had the opportunity to learn much more than an average nursing assistant – as your leadership and advice took my career a long way. I truly wish to find some way I could continue but I have some family matters back in Boston and I have no choice but to leave at this point. I would like to thank you for providing me with training in patient care arena and making me a valuable asset to the nation.

I will hand over all my work to whomever you consider right to replace me and assure you that any pending work will be completed before I leave. I look forward to working with you again if I will be provided with a chance in future.

Thank you once again for your guidance and support during my work at St. Louis Family Health Clinic.
