Nurses are being encouraged to apply for jobs at Nottingham’s hospitals following the new emergency department expansion. A special event was held at the Queen’s Medical Centre on Monday, January 14, to encourage registered nurses in Nottinghamshire to consider working at local hospitals. NUH employs around 5,000 registered nurses, midwives and theatre practitioners but in November it had 350 vacant positions, which is around 11 percent of the nursing workforce.
