I just started recruiting for a nurse manager in an ambulatory care setting. Any ideas for sourcing/advertising?
Yes.. I have Four in particular. One is my new service.. www.gohcro.com. I'm operating a Medical Staffing Exchange Network. I'll be glad to share more info if you are interested. Don't want to oversell here.. so let me know if you have questions regarding my service.

The second is my favorite, traditional, pay-to-post job board... Absolutely Healthcare, located at www.healthjobsusa.com. Ken Levinson is the owner and he is one.. if not the largest niche healthcare board on the web. Please, if you contact him, let him know that Jim Canto referred you to the site. He is a friend of mine and I want him to know I'm supporting his business. Please and thank you.

Third is www.medXcentral.com. That is a new online social community for the medical industry. I've put that together. It's new... so membership is limited today. However, as it grows, recruiting will be allowed on the site. I'll send you an invite. Please feel free to promote your company, website and open positions on your page.

Fourth.. and final for this post... Medical Mingle. This is another online community serving the medical arena. You can learn more by clicking HERE.

Hope that helps.
From both sides, this is the problem I see most...

Your recruiter can make or break your assignment. If you have a great assignment, even the tough times are easier to get through. If you have a terrible assignment along with a terrible recruiter..... Hell is easier to go through!!!

I would lke to know some of the stategies to makes assignments better for nurses AND recruiters!

Do you know your nurses personalities?
Do you know your nurses likes and dislikes?
Do you give it your all to give your nurses everything they are entitled to within managements limits?
There are always two sides to a story, do you have an open mind?

The truth is, nurses and recruiters don't have to be all ME, ME and against each other... There has to be a compromise and both need to be TRUTHFUL about the situation at hand.

Just food for thought...
Hi Epstein... great point(s). It's always been that simple for me. It's all about the candidate's needs, wants and preferences. Even more so in the Medical arena. Medical professionals are a true commodity these days... and will be for the next decade or two.

In any sales process, the outcome needs to be win-win.... with the first win being on your prospect's behalf.

Thanks for post.

How do you encourage people who are already employed to take a new job position. Also I am a college student and have friends are nursing student, but the curriculum is extremely difficult which turns many people away. Where are the incentives available.
I need to learn to work with both the recruiters and job searchers and would like to have some advice from you recruiters. I run a young website called www.medicaljobclassifieds.com. What can I do with this site to make your jobs easier, and make the site more effective.
