Dear Ms. Leroy:

I am writing to inform you of my decision to resign from my position as Certified Nursing Assistant for St Louis Family Health Clinic effective February 6, 2016.

It makes me sad to leave such rewarding job through which I have learned very much 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 comprehensive 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.
