Why it Pays to Relocate as a Nurse
As the fastest-growing occupation in the U.S., the nursing industry is in a significant state of transition. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, registered nurses account for 2.6 million jobs in the U.S. By the end of 2018, the BLS experts expect Registered Nurses to grow to 3.2 million. Due to variable growth factors, relocation within the nursing field has created an influx of job opportunities.

Relocation Employee Stories
Learn About Vicky R.
HCR ManorCare Florida
Relocated from Naperville, Illinois and Reno, Nevada
Vicky’s story begins as an HCR ManorCare nurse working in Naperville, Illinois. The opportunity to relocate came to her attention from a company-wide email, which introduced candidates to select facilities that participate in the relocation program.
“This was a huge advancement for my career. It was also huge to be the first nurse to be [relocated] because I had only been with the company for about a year.”
With the help of HCR ManorCare paying moving expenses, Vicky easily transitioned from Naperville, Illinois to Reno, Nevada. She was able to quickly get established in her new work environment and home.
Since her first relocation, Vicky has moved to another HCR ManorCare facility in Florida. She states that, “It’s great to have the knowledge of what [HCR ManorCare] does, because you can walk into any building [anywhere] and know what’s going on. [Relocation] was not hard to get used to at all. I would recommend relocating to anyone who’s looking for a change.”
