Nurses in high demand

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Medical facilities and health care centers like the Good Samaritan Society are getting creative when it comes to filling open nursing positions.

“By having this event we are really trying to combat that and come up with creative ways to bring those great nurses in and care for our residents,” Good Samaritan Society Sioux Falls Village Dana Bachmeier said.

Potential applicants get a tour of the facility, ask questions of staff and residents, and enjoy a free lunch at a food truck.

“And they can even apply for a job, interview on the spot,” Bachmeier said.

“I think it’s that family-like culture that we really try to create here, it’s not just that you’re seeing this resident one day and they are leaving, you are here for the rest of their lives and you’re creating those bonds with them and giving them that quality of life they so deserve,” Bachmeier said.
