As part of the one-hour event, participants can meet current Good Shepherd nurses, RN managers and recruiters face-to-face via computer, smartphone or tablet. Participants can ask questions, hear first-hand experiences and inspiring patient stories. Attendees can also learn about Good Shepherd’s career opportunities and nursing sign-on bonus, which is one of the largest in the Lehigh Valley currently.
“While COVID-19 certainly has challenged us to rethink recruiting events that we typically host in-person, we are excited to offer a virtual event that still offers a digital face-to-face conversation about how we enhance lives, maximize function and inspire hope for our post-acute rehabilitation patients and long-term care residents,” says Scott Moynihan, PHR, administrative director of Human Resources.
