Respiratory Therapist Resignation Letter Example

Updated on: July 1, 2021
Should I include the reason to leave in my resignation letter?

Some people suggest that you should make your reason to resign in a respiratory therapist resignation letter. Others say not to divulge this information. We suggest that you work halfway – but only if your reason to leave will not be deemed savory by your employer.

Coming clean about why you want to leave is important, however, saying that you have found another job that is “better” may not go down very well with your employer.

Improvise! Look for innovative ways of informing your employer that you want to leave. If your reason to leave is something as straightforward as an illness or the fact that you have to move to another city or country, there is no harm in being straightforward. However, if you have found a better job, you may need to be a little less candid.

Okay now, let us move on to a resignation letter sample – that of a respiratory therapist:

Mr. Jeremy Morgan
Manager Human Resource
Parkland Health and Hospital System
3215 Chula Vista Road
Friendsville, TN 89755

Dear Mr. Morgan:

I have been in a professional and personal dilemma regarding resigning from my position as a respiratory therapist at Parkland Health and Hospital System for over a year now. This Catch-22 situation has not been too comfortable and since it has the potential to affect my work, I have decided in the favor of resigning. That being said, July 14 will be my last working day on a 2-weeks notice.

The last three months have not been very comfortable for me as I have had considerable drama at home, owing to my daughter being in and out of the hospital. I believe that it is time that I dedicated my time to her until she recovers from her illness.

I would like to recommend Tara Banks, a fellow respiratory therapist to replace me – Tara is a certified respiratory therapist (CRT) through the National Board of Respiratory Care (NBRC) and has a Tennessee Department of State Health Services Respiratory Care Practitioner License to her name. I believe she will be able to take over my responsibilities immediately and will not require expensive training.

Thank you for the wonderful opportunity that you provided to me at Parkland Health and Hospital Services. I wish the facility all the very best for the coming years.
