A recent article from the Community Press/Cincinnati.com highlights the greatest vacancy level in years currently exists for hospitals in greater Cincinnati and northern Kentucky. The vacancy rate currently rests at 7.3% for area hospitals; if you were thinking of becoming an RN, this is a great time!
Nursing students are also reaping benefits from the hospitals' needs. "They're definitely interested in hirong on (students as) nursing aides, then hiring up once they graduate," said nursing student Julia Hall. Retirement of existing nurses is added to the general expansion of healthcare to create a healthy employment climate.
