Student experiences help boost hospital's recruiting


WILLMAR -- Offer clinical experiences for students in the health professions and maybe you'll end up with a future employee.

Not only does it contribute to the education of future health care professionals but it also exposes them to what it might be like to work at Rice, said Joyce Elkjer, human resources director at the hospital.
