As Nursing Crunch Looms, Kindred Offers $10k Signing Bonus

Louisville, Kentucky-based Kindred Healthcare (NYSE: KND) is attempting to draw registered nurses (RN) with cash, offering a $10,000 signing bonus for each of five RN positions in the Louisville area.  

The high signing bonus, first reported by Louisville Business First on Nov. 3, is also available to RNs in California, New Mexico, Missouri, Colorado and Georgia, Kindred’s job site indicates. The bonuses for RNs range between $2,000 and $10,000 in multiple markets.

The bonus is one example of how some providers are luring care staff in an increasingly tight labor market, but not all stakeholders see the offering as an advantage.
