Dear [recipient's name]:
I am writing to you today to formally inform you of my intent to retire from my position as a nurse with A&B Health Professionals. Tentatively, I intend to retire within the next two months, and I would like to meet with you at your earliest convenience so we can finalize that date and discuss how best to wrap up my duties, train other employees, and so forth.
Working with you and the rest of the staff has been a highly fulfilling experience for me. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be with such a stellar company for the past 19 years. Thank you for all you have done to help me advance in my skills and career.
