Miller County Hospital and the Department of Labor Bainbridge Career Center joined together to
recruit some new faces.
"It just became more evident that we needed to branch out to
find more skilled nurses and they were willing to partner with us and help us
with that," said Karie Spence, Miller Co. Hospital HR Director.
The hospital's Human Resource Director says there are about 15 spots they want
to fill with Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses and Nursing Assistants.
"Were looking for individuals that are new to nursing, that
are not scared to try something new that are looking to gain some
experience," said Karie Spence.
And for people with a little bit more experience, there's a spot
for them as well.
"In our nursing home we are looking for people who may have
some more experience because some of our residents do require more
care," said Karie Spence.
Karie Spence says Miller County Hospital is in more demand these
days as health care changes.
"Just in the last few months, there has been a tremendous
growth with Calhoun nursing home closing earlier this year. It certainly

Spence says the hospital will be offering a signing bonus for RN's
and CNA's who come on board.
