How to Recruit the Best Nurses

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, November 7th, 2011

Instead of posting  job openings on numerous online job boards, engage your staff in finding the right nurses. Ask them for recommendations.

Often the best nurses  are already employed and are not looking at want ads in the newspapers or online. They may be satisfied with their jobs and wouldn’t  hear about the position unless somebody tells them.

Gather your staff together. Ask them who they know who might be interested in the position. This not only attracts great candidates, but it honors the staff for their input and helps to create great teams.

This strategy is consistent with my EachOneReachOneNurse initiative. If every one of the 2 1/2 million nurses in the country recruits or retains one nurse, our shortage would be averted!
