Wined and Dined by future employers


I was reading an article in my local paper today about how the county hospital nurse recruiter admits to "wine & dine" new grads, and says all the hospitals do it, as they all need nurses.

I know the senior class of our program this year had luncheons at least twice from area hospitals with a "please come work for us!!" theme. I was curious as to those of you who experienced the same from future employers while you were in school, or after graduation.

Yes, I remember well being wined and dined " back in the day." Take advantege of it now......they don't seem to wine and dine after awhile.

I loved being in nursing school with all the luncheons. It was a great perk. But in the end I went to work for the hospital that I worked for in the first place because my boss helped me so much with my schedule and understanding with me being a single mother and working full time and going to school fulltime. Like the saying goes "Dance with the one that brung ya."

Why not wine and dine experienced nurses?

I've wondered about that too.

Perhaps the more important question is, how do they treat nurses who've been there for a year, five years, ten years?
