I will have been working for a year on June 12th and I want to submit a letter stating that I will no longer be full time but PRN and just work the minimum of 24 hours a month because I have found another job. I have read that it's better to give a one month notice. I still want to stay PRN but I have found another job so I want to put it in writing about my change in status. I am not sure how to word the letter, any help?

One thing that is nice to include is how much you have learned the past year and how much this job has helped you develop professionally (even if it's not ENTIRELY true). That way even though you're going PRN it doesn't look like it is because of the facility. Don't be surprised if they whine and beg and ask you to stay full time, just politely say you need to try something else at this time. If you do this and you ever need to be full time again at this place, you won't have burned any bridges.

You need to write a letter requesting a change of status from full-time to prn, effective on such and such a date. I would not recommend informing your employer that you have found another job. It is really none of their business why you are requesting the status change. They will either grant it, or not, but they do not need to know why you are requesting it. If they are unwilling to change your status, then you will need to resign.

Dear Miss Manager,

I am writing to request a change in status from full-time to prn, effective July 1, 2007. I understand that with prn status, I will be required to work 12 hours per pay period, and will not be eligible for benefits. Thank you for your prompt attention to this request.

Sincerely,

You

People leave jobs all the time, they won't take it personally. They should be grateful that you're still willing to work for them part-time

When I left my first hospital, I continued to work there in a unit based float pool, for about a year or so, working a double shift every other weekend. That was a few less shifts they had to worry about covering.
