Hello everyone! I currently work as a CNA for PA school. I will be starting school in late June and my manager knows my plan about leaving in early June. Recently, I came across some medical issues and it is preventing me from going to work. After much consideration, I have decided to resign from my job now insted of June. I turned in the papers into HR and did all the required things. My manager does not know yet since she is on vacation. She will be back this following week. I guess I’m just worried my manager will be mad? I know technically they can’t be and I did things the right away (I even had a doctor’s note). I’m just concerned regarding my future endeavors, in case I might need a reference. I know I might be overthinking this, which I tend to do a lot. Any advice would be appreciated and please let me know if I’m worrying for no reason 😅

Take the lead and ask to meet with your manager when she gets back from vacation. Speaking to her in person is the classy thing to do.

Thank you! I will take the initiative and talk to her in person.

Yes, speak to the manager in person.  Try to be the first one to talk to her about this, even if it means coming in on your day off.  If you've had a good relationship thus far, she will probably be supportive.

Do you mean next week as in today (Monday 3/18) or next week as in 3/25?

If it's today, definitely try to talk to her ASAP. If it's next week...I might recommend that you email her. Even though she's on vacation, if she's out for the whole week she'll probably check her email. I'd be concerned that HR might reach out to her for logistical reasons before she gets back. If she'll be back today, then you'll probably catch her before HR does (given that you posted right before the weekend).

Usually I'd always suggest giving your notice in person. However, if I were in your position, I'd rather my manager find out in an email from me than an email from HR. If you do notify her via email, I'd explicitly acknowledge and apologize for contacting her via email instead of in person, and I'd offer to meet up with her when she gets back.

Someone should be covering for the manager (assistant manager maybe?).  I would put in notice with the person covering for manager, plus the manager upon her return.  It would be a nice courtesy in case they have scheduling or assignments to consider in your absence.
