"I chose the place where I was going to fit in and grow." That growth includes her paycheck. Risley's wages have increased $7 an hour within three years, thanks to a mix of raises tied to annual evaluations, a step up on the clinical nursing ladder and an increase to stay competitive with other regional hospitals. She … [Read more...] about There’s a nursing shortage nationwide
