Because the state of North Dakota has a shortage of staffed hospital beds, we need more nurses.

We all know how controversial it is to talk about the Coronavirus. It is a virus causing illness as well as political unrest. Whether you believe in the pandemic or consider it a "plandemic," North Dakota is running low on staffed hospital beds for sick people.

According to the Grand Forks Herald, as of Tuesday (September 29), there are only 22 staffed hospital beds available in North Dakota. The Herald reports that both Sanford and CHI St. Alexius, in Bismarck, have at total of two available hospital beds and 15 inpatient beds. If all of the beds were staffed, the Herald report says that there would be 255 inpatient beds and 22 ICU beds available. Get the full story here.

Now, TrainND is working to get more nurses working in North Dakota. What are they doing? They are offering a three-week speed course for people wanting their CNA license. And they could possibly even get the education at no personal financial cost. Get the full story about North Dakota's fast track CNA program from KX Net here.

This is an education opportunity that I wish I had the guts (and the stomach) to seize a career in the medical field. It takes a special kind of person to work in the medical field, definitely not for the faint of heart. Especially at a time like now, when we are living through this crazy pandemic.

Have you considered starting a career in the medical field since the pandemic began?
