(CNN) – America is facing a nursing shortage; so hospitals are offering perks and incentives to attract qualified applicants.
Some hospitals are offering five-figure signing bonuses and college tuition for employees and their children.
Others are providing free housing and up to $20,000 in reimbursable relocation costs.
It comes as experienced nurses are retiring at a rapid rate.
The American nurses association estimates the U.S. will need more than a million new registered nurses by 2022.
