I have looked up several factories online here in Michigan and I can't seem to find any listings at all on any of the websites that they hire nurses. Have they stopped hiring nurses for factories?

- Jan 22 by jennifer007I work for Emerson as an occupational health/plant nurse. It is a great job but as the turnover is not very high openings are rare. I was lucky that I had just come home from a travel assignment and a friend said the local factory needed a nurse. I applied and got the job. If you are interested in working for a factory, you could call their HR department and ask them about on-site nursing. You could also tell them that with growing health care costs having an on-site nurse is a great way to curb work comp costs and to keep track of health and safety issues. Having a nurse on-site prevents the factory from sending out cases that can be handled in-house and care can be given to employees faster in the event of an emergency. There are many good arguments for factories to hire nurses. You may have to sell it, but it is worth it.
