One Louisiana hospital has started offering a new car to nurses who agree to work the night and weekend shifts for three years.

<<Desperate to fill positions during a nationwide nursing shortage, River Parishes began offering to lease a 2002 Saturn for nurses who agree to work at the hospital for at least three years. After three years, nurses can return the car, or they can pay the remaining balance and keep it.>>
How much you want to bet the hospital gets a deal on leasing all these cars & can make below-minimum payments so that at the end of 3 yrs, the RN gets stuck owing a good chunk of the balance?
Even a free car for a few years isnt enough to get a lot of us to put our lives, licenses, & pt's lives on the line by working in the conditions of some of these hell holes. When are they going to face that?
Forget the gimmicks & FIX THE CONDITIONS!
