Have you stopped to thank a nurse recently?
As the nation’s fifth largest occupation, nurses make up an essential component of the health care system. Nursing requires a lot of behind the scenes work that is often not openly recognized, making it a very thankless job.
However, this does not mean that nurses go unappreciated. Hospitals and employers understand their importance and are offering high wages for qualified personnel. Additionally, many nurses are receiving large sign-on bonuses for as little as one year experience.
It is best said by Donna Wilk Cardillo: “Nurses are the heart of healthcare.”
Read the article, Nurses Are Again in Demand, from the Wall Street Journal to learn more about the current shortage of nurses across the nation. And make sure you thank a nurse the next time you get the chance.
