Mental health nurses offered USD$14,000 to work in Colorado

Mental health nurses are being recruited by the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) to work in the state’s two psychiatric hospitals in Denver and Pueblo. The state is offering a USD$14,000 sign-on bonus and other benefits to mental health nurses.

Colorado, along with the nation, is undergoing a nursing shortage that saw a decline of more than 100,000 registered nurses from 2020 to 2021, and is also facing an expected 10% increase in demand for mental health nurses in five years, according to a 2021 report from Mercer.

Colorado and 38 other states are part of the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC); under the NLC, nurses can practice in other participating states without having to obtain additional licenses.

Bonus, retirement plan and state benefits for mental health nurses

“Many people hear ‘human services’ and think of programs like child welfare and food assistance,” said CDHS Executive Director Michelle Barnes. “While we do provide those services, we are also a healthcare organisation. We serve Coloradans every day at our mental health hospitals, nursing homes, care facilities and youth centres.”

A sign-on bonus, retirement plan, generous state benefits, more than 300 days of sunshine, and year-round recreational activities, including six of the top 10 ski resorts in the nation and superb hiking trails, make Colorado a great place to continue or launch a career. Colorado is a special place to live, with activities for all ages, rich cultural heritage, strong communities and experiences that can’t be found anywhere else.

“CDHS is committed to empowering Coloradans to thrive through bold and innovative health and human services,” said Barnes. “We value our exceptional nursing staff’s hard work and dedication, and invite you to join them and call Colorado home.”
