    I have decided it would be best for me to resign as a care worker in a nursing home.

    This is because I have a few chronic health problems including endometriosis, which all seem to have flared up recently, and may require surgical intervention.

    I am a student nurse, but find that far less physically demanding, and think resigning as a bank CA will help me a StN.

    There also appears to be a change in/ worsening culture in the Nursing home, It got implied I wasn't taking enough shifts, even though I am zero hours bank staff.

    I have really liked working with the care staff and residents, but have only been employed 6 weeks. I don't need a reference from them and haven't worked long enough to get one.

    Would it be unreasonable to post a letter giving my notice of resignation? I just want out to focus on my nursing and health now. Maybe 2nd or 3rd year for a job, and if so I'd definitely want the NHS bank.

    Thanks

    Does your contract say anything about notice? I wouldn't think it was unreasonable at all

    Thanks for replying.

    There's a four week notice period, which I'll honour.

    Because I'm zero hours/bank there'd only be 2 or 3 shifts in the whole time, and I don't think they'd give them me anyway.
