Dear Dr. Flannigan:

I wish to inform you with this letter of my decision of resigning from the post of a Nurse with Northern Medical Centre. My resignation would be with effect from 1st April 2012, and my last working day would be 30th April 2012.

I have decided to further my career by taking up a post with ABC Hospital as a Nurse Supervisor. I do regret any difficulty my decision would have on the organization; however I will do my best to ensure a smooth handover of responsibilities to my successor and will ensure that my tasks have been completed without any delay.

I would want to convey my regards and best wishes both to the management and employees of Northern where I have learnt many new skills as a nurse and have found the time spent here to be very rewarding. I am thankful for the opportunities that I have received here and would like to thank you again for your support.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
