Nearly 180 new nurses have been recruited by The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH).
They will be working across its two hospitals - The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford.
They have been recruited from India and will start to arrive from December.
The Trust has looked to overseas recruitment - through Health Education England’s Global Learners programme - to help fill gaps in its nursing and midwifery workforce.
Rhia Boyode, Acting Workforce Director at SaTH, said: “Our teams are working incredibly hard to boost our workforce and we are now planning for an intake of 176 nurses from India to help boost our substantive nursing workforce and reduce the reliance on agency staff."
Barbara Beal, Director of Nursing and Midwifery at SaTH, added: "This is extremely good news for our patients and our staff, so it [is] very important that our nurses feel welcome and we are doing everything we can to ensure they feel at home when they arrive."
