Finding qualified staff is always a tough job, and finding good licensed vocational nurses is no exception. Fortunately, there are a number of different ways you can look for LVNs. Here are a few tips on finding good nurses for your practice.
Use a healthcare recruiter.
This is a good way to fill just about any type of job opening. There are a number of advantages to using a recruiter. An established healthcare recruiter has a well-developed network of contacts to draw upon when looking for people. A recruiter knows what the job market is like in the area, the supply and demand for particular types of jobs.
A healthcare recruiter is also experienced at vetting job candidates. These specialist recruiters know what to look for, and the recruiter will work with you to find people with the skills that you need. When an experienced healthcare recruiter such as those at Team1Medical Staffing sends you a job candidate, you can be sure the candidate is well qualified. Moreover, using a recruiter could save you a lot of time and money, relieving you of the time-consuming hiring process – advertising the position, sifting through resumes and interviewing.
This is also a great way to find people, and not used often enough. Your own employees are a great resource for finding people. They know the people in their field – who is good, who is not, and whether or not the person would be a good fit with your practice.
You should encourage your employees to refer others whom they know and offer some kind of reward for doing so. Pass their referrals on to your recruiting firm to vet these candidates before you interview or hire them. This will ensure that every referral is up to the standard of hire you look for.
Advertising open positions on your website can be effective because candidates get to see different aspects of your practice – what it’s like, who works there, and what they think about it.
