Nurses from outside Minnesota prep for strike duty

Minneapolis Star Tribune, June 3, 2010
Nearly 2,400 nurses from other states have flooded the Minnesota nursing board with license applications in the last month, 10 times the normal volume, as hospitals line up replacements for a possible strike June 10. The 14 hospitals have said they're preparing to stay open if a walkout occurs, and staffing agencies are offering as much as $2,200 a day to recruit temporary replacement nurses. Already, some elective procedures are being postponed, and some doctors are starting to field questions from patients about what to expect if a strike occurs.
