Staff RN layoffs in New Jersey??

  1. Does anyone know of any hospitals that have laid off nurses in NJ recently???
    Do most NJ hospitals have empty beds???? Especially in the cardiac areas??

    I haven't heard of a New Jersey layoff (except for hospitals that close!) EVER.My hospital just added an "in house agency" since they are tired of competing with the private agencys. Great Money!!!

    Are you in NJ as those that might be considered for layoffs will probably need to look elsewhere for jobs.

    My experience with closing hospitals is that the other local hospitals grab the staff really fast, especially experienced nurses. I know when the hospital I worked at closed the OB and Peds, all the nurses who wanted another job got one within days.
