Economy may be tanking, but Florida hospitals still hiring nurses

Orlando Sentinel, November 24, 2008

During a time when many companies are downsizing and cutting costs, some hospitals in the Orlando, FL, area are hiring nurses by the dozens. The Villages Regional Hospital and Leesburg Regional, together called Central Florida Health Alliance, recently hired 64 nurses during a two-month span. Florida Hospital Waterman in Tavares has hired about 130 nurses since January. With stiff competition to attract qualified nurses, hospital recruiters say they have to be innovative and quick to act on the qualified candidates.
