Retiring nurses aren't replaced

We are not replacing RNs who retire or leave their jobs.

I was hired by a regional hospital to cover an absence due to Long-Term Disability (LTD). The position was full-time and my job was contract. At the end of my contract, the hospital’s story changed and I was told that I was, in fact, covering a maternity leave.

The employer did not hire to fill the full-time RN position that is vacant due to LTD. Instead, it dissolved the position and is attempting to cover it with part-timers.
