Iowa needs nurses, will pay $ 330 per hour

The state of Iowa has approved a budget of over nine million dollars for hiring nurses abroad, as the number of hospitalizations due to covid-19 continues to increase, the Washington Examiner reported.

Iowa is offering a Kansas-based company about $ 220 an hour for nurses it manages to send. They are expected to work 20 hours of overtime at $ 330 an hour. The move will cost Iowa more than $ 15,000 a week for a nurse, and at least 100 respiratory therapists and nurses have already arrived in Iowa.

Workers abroad will receive paid hotel accommodation and a transportation bonus. The state-owned personnel agency was used in December 2020 and January 2021. The cost of 100 additional nurses at the time was about $ 6.9 million, the report said.
