Blessing Hospital offers new opportunities for nurses.

The hospital is now looking for "seasonal nurses."

Nurses have the option of working September through May or April through December.

Seasonal nurses would work five days a week.

"Evening shift, night shift. That's the draw. That's the need we have in the hospital setting so if we can fill those positions, give someone off, while they can be home with their children in the summer or if they travel during the winter that's what we wanted to do to entice people to come back to the bedside," said Emily Hendrickson, Associate Chief Nursing Officer at Blessing Hospital.

Seasonal nursing is one of several ways Blessing Hospital is fighting the nursing shortage.

The hospital also offers loan forgiveness up to 10-thousand dollars.
