    Even though I'm not old lol, I completely agree with what GrnTea said. The required 30 day notice is sufficient. If you knew that your job was guaranteed, that would be different, but what if they ask you to leave early? Then, no job for a number of months. It would be nice if we could be considerate and give even more advance notice, but in today's world, many employers will not extend the same type of consideration that you extend to them, which is sad, but the way it is. It sounds like you currently work for a good company, so it's your call.

    I also work for a good place/good mgmt, so I wouldn't hesitate to give even more advance notice (which I don't have to do because I love my job). Isn't it awesome when you find a job you love? Best of luck in your new hospice career! I work in ICU, and palliative care happens on occasion and is rewarding, though difficult to see families' anguish as in the ICU, they didn't have 6 months to grieve, they may have only had 30 minutes notice or so. But, compassion and the challenges of nursing are why we do what we do, right?

    Congrats!! Having a job that is a great fit for you makes a huge difference. I can definitely speak to that! Enjoy your new journey!

    Oh, and your letter is sincere and very complimentary of your current place of employment. Well done.

    Just a minor detail: do not end a sentence with a preposition, i.e. "work for." and "care for." Also, I wouldn't say "content." I would say something a little more complimentary; content is just that: fine, nothing special.

    Not wishing to cause offence nor poke fun but the comment reminds one of a joke that our English Lit teacher told us in college.

    A young girl from the south was accepted to a Seven Sisters/Ivy League girls college in the north.

    Quite excited on moving in day she met her dorm roommate. "Hi.... where ya'll from?" she asked. Her roommate a cool Yankee girl replied, "where I am "from" we do not end our sentences with prepositions". A bit hurt and taken back the southern girl thought for a minute then replied, "I'm sorry. Where y'all from, b**th?"

    Just a little story. Do with it what you will.
