If you are getting ready to downsize your job hours from full time to pro re nata status, you should probably go through the usual process of resignation in order to have everything properly recorded. Here is a helpful guide to writing a formal resignation letter from fulltime to PRN in a businesslike and gracious manner. This is a great way to confirm the situation with your employers and demonstrate to them that you are a courteous professional who does things according to rules.
Format and Content
You should include no more than three paragraphs in a good resignation letter from full time to PRN format. Use the first paragraph to open with your confirmation of the switch date. Give your contact details and assurances of your hard work up until you leave in your next paragraph. Close with a nice expression of gratitude to your employers and thank them for their understanding and letting you get in some hours on PRN status. You will see below the most professional way to address and sign your letter before you start printing out copies for the appropriate managers at your workplace.
Here is a resignation letter from fulltime to PRN sample from a nurse who is cutting back on time spent at her clinic. She writes this formal letter to thank her employers for giving her the opportunity to come into work as needed rather than on a rigorous fulltime schedule and following her example can help push you toward success.
I am just writing to confirm the schedule change date in regards to my position as a registered nurse at ABC Family Health Clinic. I will be switching from fulltime hours to PRN, which will suit me much better and help me to be able to care for my family in the way that they deserve. My last day on the fulltime schedule will be May 8, 2014. I appreciate all of your ongoing patience and cooperation with me.
I regret any inconvenience that may result from this change. If there is anything I can do, I would be happy to oblige. I will of course work as hard as always during my last week on the fulltime schedule, and put forth all efforts to do well in PRN work. If any clarification is needed in this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me at (555)-555-5555 or [email] and I will return all messages as soon as possible.
Working at ABC Family Health Clinic has been a great experience for me and I am very thankful that I will be able to retain my job there in PRN capacity. When I am able to take care of my family well, I will also be better able to serve the clinic’s patients well. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
