Health care figures into strong San Francisco Bay area job growth
The San Francisco Bay area experienced strong employment growth in March, adding 12,000 jobs including 900 health care positions in the Alameda County-Contra Costa County area and 1,100 in Santa Clara County. Bank of the West Chief Economist Scott Anderson said this level of job growth, if it continues, will pressure employers to raise wages.

RNs say they're in nursing for the vocation, not the money
Registered nurse Robert Hess Jr. took an informal poll of his nursing colleagues on Facebook and found most went into the profession for the vocation and a desire to help people. RN Karen Mascolo of Kent State University wrote that people who choose nursing for the money will not stay and that the job "becomes a part of your human fabric."

The program includes collaborating with a Spanish professor and his class, which acted as translators during the training.
