Dear Human Resources,

I regret to inform you that I will be departing Wonderland University Hospital after 30 years of service. Wonderland has provided me many opportunities to learn and grow as a Registered Nurse throughout my nursing career.

In compliance with Wonderland University Hospital Pension Plan I intend to retire effective June 1, 2046.

While I look forward to enjoying retirement on the sunny beaches of Dominican Republic, I will miss working with the company and all of my colleagues. If I can be of any assistance during this transition please............________#####**

Dr. SoandSo: "Crap!!!!"

::instruments fall::

Dr. SoandSo: "Madras, we're converting to open."

Me: "😩 dammit!!"

- Hey.... A girl can daydream!

I don't know what it is but I've been thinking about retirement all week! Maybe I just need a nice vacation.

There must be plenty of nurses here thinking about their very distant retirement as well.

Slightly depressing but also nice to start planning ahead. 😃

I've got a kid who will be heading to medical school after his undergrad degree is done.

I may NEVER retire!

I just calculated my time left: 12,437 days until I can retire with full SS benefits. Sigh. And I've already been searching for the overseas retirement home.

So do I! But I'd love to be able to do it on my OWN terms...and do something else when I feel like it, too ;)

Oooh, you need to adopt my motto: The Undergrad is on me. Any further education is on YOU, with respect for your future earning capacity.

Agreed! I love what I do and will most likely still work after retirement! I want to do it because I can not because I have to financially.

LOL..it's a good motto! Only thing is I've long told him that I expect to be in a really nice retirement home in my later years . :D

We plan to help as much as is reasonable. :)

NicuGal, MSN, RN

Specializes in NICU, PICU, PACU. Has 30 years experience.

I can go out in 3 months...30 years in. But if I stay another year it is another $1000 per month. No brainer. I love my job, but will be retiring, hopefully, to informatics :)

I have about 3,900 days to work until I'm 65, I just want to slow down the clock.

Specializes in Nursing Professional Development. Has 44 years experience.

Approximately 1800 days until Medicare. That's my milestone. At that point, I should be able to retire -- and maybe do some part-time professional stuff "just for fun."

I have too many to think about. I am curious how healthcare is going to change over my career. I have already started my 401k so hopefully I can afford to go PRN or part time somewhere when I "retire".
