Abstract: We prove that the numerical range $W\left( N\right) $ of an arbitrary nilpotent operator $N$ on a complex Hilbert space $H$ is a circle (open or closed) with center at $0$ and radius not exceeding $\left\Vert N\right\Vert \cos \frac{\pi }{n+1},$ where $n$ is the power of nilpotency of $N.$
