We’ve heard about the coming nursing shortage in many parts of America, but it’s already hit Fargo, N.D. Sanford Health in Fargo is currently offering sign-on bonuses of $15,000 for RNs who have at least two years of experience. The bonus also comes with the stipulation that the nurses must commit to stay at the hospital for at least three years.
According to the Grand Forks Herald, the hospital had signed on two dozen nurses in a little over a week after the bonus was offered.
Have you seen in any sign-on bonuses like this in any other areas? Let us know in the comments.
