NURSING CAREER FAIR AT WESTERN NEBRASKA COMMUNITY COLLEGE PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES FOR FUTURE NURSES

With the current alarming rate of shortage of nurses, health agency representatives from Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, and South Dakota participated in the Nursing Career Fair at Western Nebraska Community College.

Career fair events like this opens wider doors for future nurses on increasing their chances of getting hired right after graduation. As one local hospital said they say opportunities are pretty high for new graduates.

“It’s very high,” said Erica Smith, BSN, RN, Surgical Coordinator for Box Butte General Hospital in Alliance, Nebraska. “We are willing to take new graduates.”

The requirements for nursing students include passing a background check, drug screening and for nurses, they must have a valid license.

One hospital said, they are willing to hire all the new graduates that they can.

“One of the graduates that walked up to me today asked me how many new graduates we were willing to hire and my answer to her was all of them,” explained Kristina Ainsworth, Director of Nursing for Bennett County Hospital in Martin, South Dakota.

As one local coordinator pointed out as an advice, she says she ventured out before taking an opportunity in her area but says to make sure you know what is offered before you make the big move.

“I grew up in Western Nebraska in Kimball actually and I was the same way,” said Emily Stull, BSN, RN, Clinical Nursing Coordinator for Box Butte General Hospital in Alliance, Nebraska. “I went to North Platte and then moved to Denver to work at the large facility. I eventually came back to Nebraska because really all that you need is right here.”
