Sanford Hospital in Fargo ND Offering $15K Signing Bonuses

  1. Attracting and keeping experienced nurses in a hospital setting is a challenge-so challenging that Sanford Health in Fargo is offering sign-up bonuses of $15,000 for registered nurses with at least two years of experience who commit to stay at least three years.

    Thank you. Larger worry a moi is how long it took for anyone to catch the error. *LOL*

    Show just how much attention is being paid to all these news items one finds and posts here, wonder if it is really worth the bother.


    Anywho ND is booming ATM. Not a day or so goes by without national news media reporting on how the state has nearly a nil unemployment rate and if you want work it's there for the asking. Much or all of this is related to the oil/gas boom going on, with men and women getting to ND anyway they can. One man interviewed on ABC news a week or so ago arrived in the morning and by the afternoon had several job offers.

    My guess is hospitals are finding themselves short staffed as a result of the sudden increase in local population but not wanting or able to wait for local new grads to be brought up to speed, hence the bonus applies to RNs with at least two years of experience.

    Wonder how long it takes to transfer a license to ND and how it factors into all this.

    OP, I been getting, and seeing more and more of these type of insentives being implemented just to attract nurses to a particular facility. However, I'm always weary about the "contract" limitations. Having said that, these days jobs are hard to come by therefore, I say first do some research and then make a decision. Wishing you the very best in all of your futuree endeavors....Aloha~

    Well one is just glad the whole thing is cleared up. Would have hated to know some RN went for an interview and busted into "Call Me Maybe" on my account.


    *LOL*

    Spent two winters in Grand Forks, ND as a student. There were a few days where it was warmer on Mars. I still got to class.

    North Dakota is a hard state to live in. All the hardships of Alaska without any of the beauty.

    Sanford will hire new grads too, though I don't think they'll get a bonus. Needless to say, North Dakota hospitals are the only hospitals I have received call backs within a few days of filing my application. That includes Sanford.

    Just came back from visiting North Dakota too for interviews. It will take a while to get used to cows, corn, cows, and more corn. I dread the winters, although from what I heard from locals, last year's winter was mild. Fargo was the nicest city in North Dakota, and there's more housing there than in other cities. I hope for offers from the hospitals I interviewed with.
