Here is a sign that nurses are demand.
Trinity Senior Living is offering a signing bonus to nurses hired for a new program at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital, and a nearby senior living community, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Registered Nurses can pocket $2,000 while Competency Evaluated Nursing Assistants are eligible for bonuses of $500.
Trinity reserves signing bonuses for when the living assistance operator is trying to recruit a large number of nurses.
If the idea proves successful in Michigan, don't be surprised to see other areas try it.
