A nursing shortage due to the ongoing pandemic is impacting many hospitals in North Carolina.

Charlotte hospitals are working to combat the issue by offering staff sign-on bonuses.

Novant Health and Atrium Health are offering bonuses of up to $20,000 in hopes of attracting quality talent. Bonuses differ by location, position, and need.

Job openings can be found on Atrium Health Careers Facebook page and Novant Health website.
