Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is planning to invest £1m in recruiting registered nurses over the next 12 months.
The trust said it expected to increase the numbers of qualified nurses and midwives at its Arrowe Park and Clatterbridge hospitals by at least 24 whole-time equivalent posts.
A trust spokeswoman said it was hoping to recruit from the UK but expected to undertake some overseas recruitment.
The investment comes after the trust spent £1.5m on additional nursing staff in 2014-15.
Gaynor Westray, the trust’s deputy chief nurse, said: “This latest announcement means we will be spending an extra £2.5m on nursing as we invested over £1.5m last year.
“This investment represents our recognition of the crucial role nursing staff play in delivering safe, quality care and the best possible patient experience,” she said.
The trust has also committed funds to “nurturing existing staff to further develop their nursing skills” to enhance the skill level of nurses on its inpatient wards.
