I am coming across a fair number of sign on and retention bonuses from Pennsylvania and I have been offered multiple positions from Pennsylvania as well.
What is the climate is like for RN's in PA? Are there controversies in the healthcare industry specific to PA?
Could just be the area- PA does have several quite rural areas that likely have difficulty attracting and retaining nurses. If these are in urban areas with multiple nursing schools, then there might be reason for concern.
I work in South Central PA, and outside of hospital staffing issues, I'm not sure of specific "controversies"
