Where are the South Florida nurses?
Miami Herald, April 7, 2008
As a nationwide nursing shortage continues, hospitals are using enticements such as offering to pay for their education and providing sign-up bonuses. In addition to these perks, some nurses only work three days a week and starting pay is $50,000 to $60,000. No South Florida hospital offers all these enticements, but each is scrambling to find unique ways to attract nurses as the shortage only gets worse.
