FOX4 - The need for nurses grows
The demand for nurses is up again and Saint Luke's Health System has 150 openings for nurses. The American Nurses Association says there will be far more nursing jobs available through 2022 than in any other profession.
Saint Luke's now has a mentoring program that pairs experienced nurses with new ones to help them handle the rigors of a high stakes, high stress field.
Kathy Howell, chief nursing officer of Saint Luke's Health System, talks to FOX4 about the factors that are increasing the demand for nurses.
