All across the nation there is a severe shortage of registered nurses and UCHealth is one healthcare provider that is in need. So much in fact, that they are offering new nurse recruits a signing bonus up to $10,000 and relocation money if the recruit is needing to move for the position. Not only are they offering a signing bonus and relocation expenses, there is also opportunity to provide nurses up to $4,000 annually to invest in continuing education. Another incentive includes the Traveler RN Program. The program allows nurses to do a 13 week rotation at various UCHealth locations.

According to KDVR, the United States will need more than 1 million new registered nurses by 2022 to meet the needs for the nation's healthcare workforce.
