Even if you have orally informed your manager of your plan to retire from the position of nurse, it is still good to send a formal retirement letter near your departure date.

Writing a nurse retirement letter is not tricky. Your retirement letter might be formal or rather unofficial. It will depend upon your association with your supervisors at the facility.

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 June 29, 2011.

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 retiring joyful, wild, and free, I will miss working for the hospital, residents whom I served and coworkers.

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 June 29, 2011.

I wish you and the Austin Healthcare good luck.



Anna M. David – RN
