Resign from a Healthcare Job Gracefully

Resign from a Healthcare Job Gracefully

Megan Malugani, Monster Contributing Writer

Planning an escape from your current job? Everyone will face this task at least once — or more likely several times — over the course of a lifetime. You don’t want to burn any bridges when you leave. After all, you may want to return to that employer someday, or you may cross paths with your soon-to-be ex-colleagues in another organization.

“Healthcare really is a small world,” says Jane Johnson, senior staffing consultant at Cigna Behavioral Health in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. “We never know who we’re going to encounter again in another setting.”

What can you do to make sure you leave your job with grace and also leave old coworkers and supervisors remembering you fondly? Here are some tips for a graceful resignation.
