A nursing shortage across the nation, state and at Allen County Regional Hospital challenges the way hospitals recruit and retain staff. Above, nurses in the ACRH surgery department, from left, Brandi Grisier, Tiffany Carson, Amanda Nickel, Jennifer Newman and Beverly Beech are at work.

Chelsea Buck quit her job as a nurse at Allen County Regional Hospital in 2015 to explore the vast opportunities in the nursing field, working on an ?as needed? basis at other hospitals in the area.

?I was still a new nurse and wanted to see what else was out there,? she said.

But there?s no place like home, Buck soon discovered. In 2017, she returned to ACRH after the birth of her daughter. Buck is married to Travis Buck, a deputy with the Allen County sheriff?s department.
