CNA Resignation Letter Samples

There are many ways in which you can write a letter to inform an employer of your intention to leave your job as a CNA. Resignation letters must be written truthfully and with much tact as they are your ticket out of an organization. Many people believe that providing detail in a resignation letter is not necessary. However, if you provide some detail you have a good chance of being understood and released from your duties without many issues.

Typically, resignation letters of Certified Nursing Assistants contain limited information – intent to leave, a notice period, reason for leaving and some niceties about the time that you have spent in the environment may be the only information that you need to provide.

For certified nursing assistants looking for a resignation letter sample, the following can be used for reference:

June 11, 2014

Ms. Olivia Logan
Nursing Manager
Sarosota Point Rehabilitation Center
901 Central Avenue
Belcourt, ND 72910


Dear Ms. Logan:

This letter serves to inform you about my decision to resign from my position as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Sarosota Point Rehabilitation Center effective from July 10, 2014. I have accepted another position at a local hospital and will need to report for work in the second week of July.

I want to thank you the entire staff of Sarosota Point Rehabilitation Center for the support that I have been provided with during the two years that I have worked here. I had the fortune to work with the best nursing team in Belcourt and I am truly appreciative of that. I began working as an inexperienced nursing assistant but I am leaving as a learned one for which I must thank my supervisors who trusted me enough to provide me with this opportunity.

The decision to leave was not easy and I was only able to make this decision after much contemplation. I have learnt most of what I know here and will take good memories with me. I understand that as part of my nursing contract, I need to train my replacement before I leave. Please let me know how you would like me to go about this. I assure you that I will handle the training process diligently along with any other tasks that I need to take into account as part of the leaving process.

I wish Sarosota Point Rehabilitation Center’s amazing nursing team all the best for all future endeavors.


Sincere regards,

Sasha Ally
Certified Nursing Assistant
Employee No: 602147
