Covid-19 Nurse Shortage

Covid-19 Nurse Shortage

COVID-19 has caused a global shortage of health resources, doctors, nurses, and hospitals. This has massively impacted the nation over the past two years but now we are attempting to deal with the aftermath of this situation. As hospitals are desperately understaffed, the Abrazo Health company is desperately hiring nurses in order to fill the gap of workers in Arizona. The only issue is that competition is stiff as many large corporations are competing for the same workers.

Due to Covid, hospitals everywhere have been seeing nurses leaving in large quantities over the past six months. In order to make sure they can fill their nursing gap, Abrazo Health is partnering with nursing schools, social events, and interviews once a week. Abrazo says that Covid wards are not the only places with a higher demand for nurses but surgery wards are filling up. Abrazo says their nurses are truly dedicated towards making their hospitals a better and safer place.
