Even if you have verbally informed your nursing manager of your plan to retire from the position of nurse, it is still needed to send a formal retirement letter at least two weeks before.

Writing a nurse retirement letter is not tricky. Your letter might be formal or informal depending on the nature of your relation with manager.

See the example below in order to get a basic idea of writing a retirement letter from nursing position.

Dear Ms. Andrew:

I am writing to give you a 2 week notice of my plan to get retirement from my current position as a registered nurse at the Austin Healthcare.My last day at my workplace will be October 29, 2015.

I have decided to take premature retirement since, per my point of view, life is so short it is better to retire too early instead of too late. Even though I am looking forward to enjoy a joyful and free life after retirement, I will miss working for the hospital, coworkers and residents to whom I served for many years.

I would like to thank you for having had me element of the organization for the last twenty years. If I can be of further assistance, I will be available at my seat till October 29.

I wish best of luck to you and the entire staff of Austin Healthcare.
