Dear Dr. Menon
RE: Resigning from Paduka Hospital
I am tendering this letter as my official resignation from my post of Ward Nurse (Recovery) at your esteemed organization, Paduka Hospital, with April 30 2010 as my last employment day.
The reason for my resignation is that I have been offered the post of Matron at another reputable hospital in another state. This new position offers new challenges and opportunities to enhance my knowledge and skills in nursing. After much thought, I have decided to take up the offer where I shall commence my service there on May 5 2010.
Thank you for your guidance and support shown to me while I was here; and I am filled with gratitude for working with a great team in the Recovery ward for the last 3 years at this hospital.
I take this opportunity to wish you and this hospital all the best in your future endeavors.
