  •  I bet she was told all about... (0+ / 0-)

    ...the need for nurses and shown statistics on the growth of healthcare?

    I will say this: many young nurses are snobby about their first job or limited by other life obligations.  Getting your foot in the door is a good way to get into a reasonable RN position. The connections and face time are valuable. Even if you don't benefit from direct promotion due to turnover, nurses always talk. Someone who is competent and respected can find out pretty easily where the hiring is and who is doing it.

    •  I'll also add that much hinges on the election (0+ / 0-)

      The practicalities of healthcare operations will change dramatically based on the supreme court and the presidential election. Uncertainty is causing many administrators to stand pat. The best ones have a plan for all of the outcomes, the worst are panicked. Still, things should be moving along by fall.
