Regardless of the reason you are resigning from your nursing job, you must write a professional resignation letter, preferably on two weeks’ notice.
Even though you are supposed to convey your message in-person to your employer, it is the right manner and sometimes a necessary part of your nursing job agreement to give your employer a two weeks notice of resignation before leaving your job.
The following example will give you a better idea of what and how to write.

Vaughan, ON C5S 9W1
Dear Mr. Doe:
I am writing to tender my official resignation from ABC Community Clinic, effective two weeks from today. My last day of employment will be September 24. These two weeks will provide me sufficient time to complete existing assignments while assisting with the transition to a new nurse.
On my part, this was not an easy decision. The past three years as a Registered Nurse at ABC Community Clinic have been extremely rewarding. I have taken pleasure in working with you and managing a very competent staff to deliver on-time and quality patient care.
Thank you for the opportunities for development that you have provided me during the last three years. I wish you, my colleagues, and the staff of ABC Community Clinic all the best.
I will remain available at my desk until the last day of my work. It will be a pleasure to train and hand over my responsibilities to my replacement.
Anna Johnson, RN
Whatever your reason for leaving your nursing job, it is strongly recommended to give two weeks’ notice. That is because it will give the employer sufficient time to assign your tasks to someone else. Also, it will help to keep the re-employment doors open.
