Great story. Lots of numbers. Buckets of reasons to sweat.
Here's the lede:
Hospitals competing for registered nurses amid a nationwide shortage are offering inducements ranging from signing bonuses-some as high as $15,000 on top of $60,000 starting salaries-to free child care and a free continuing education. One advertisement in a nursing trade publication offered a new car for any nurse who agreed to work for at least two years.

Won't ever happen here because you have to be in the union to work here! I personally prefer this because I know I am not a good negotiator (you should see the bad deal I got on my car!!!). One nurse on the board, Brownms46, always negotiates her salary and says she gets good rates. Wish I was more like that
