Respiratory Therapist Resignation Letter Example

Updated on: December 30, 2015


Some people suggest that you should make your reason to resign obvious 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.

Fortunately, resignation letters do not have to be as detailed as cover letters, since there is no need to impress the employer with endless information on your skills and qualifications. But whatever information that you do provide, needs to be exact and to the point. A few niceties thrown in will make your resignation letter sound more professional – with a personal touch added as well.

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. January 29, 2016 will be my last working day at the facility.

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.
