The time it takes to source, interview, and onboard new nurses can be quite lengthy, and cost your organization’s quality of care and resources. In fact, research from Lean Human Capital by HealthcareSource found that the average time-to-start was 73 days for typical nursing roles, and 144 days for critical, hard-to-fill roles.
This means you need to more efficiently and strategically source, recruit, interview, and onboard new nurses so you can work to decrease your time-to-fill while hiring for fit and retention. In honor of National Nurses Week, we assembled this expert advice for you to apply to each step of the nurse hiring process, so you can not only hire, but keep the best quality of nurses, that you need at your organization.
