The healthcare industry is one of the fastest growing occupational groups with a projected 1 million jobs to be added by 2024, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Whether your focus is on recruiting travel nurses, physicians, or other critical healthcare occupations - it’s become increasingly important to utilize resources and tools to tap into top healthcare talent.
Competition is stiff, but these five tools and resources can help recruiters in the healthcare industry increase productivity and efficiency in attracting and engaging with the right candidates.
Doximity is coined as the LinkedIn for healthcare professionals. They boast to be the largest network of healthcare professionals in the United States – specifically with a membership that includes 60 percent of the current practicing population of physicians as well as nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Their Talent Finder tool allows recruiters the ability to tap into over 500,000 healthcare physicians across the nation – and a free trial is available.
M3 (standing for Medicine, Media, and Metamorphosis) was initiated in the United States in 2006 with a goal of changing the world of medicine through the power of the internet – including clinical education, market research projects, and new career opportunities for members. Their PracticeMatch tool is designed to offer a database of over 300,000 physicians nationwide, an exclusive job board, and sophisticated sourcing tools for in-house physician recruiters only.
For those recruiters out there fighting the in the war for travel nurses, BluePipes (medical slang term meaning veins) could be a good resource. Also, it’s free to create a recruiter profile, engage in discussion forums, post jobs for free, and receive resumes from travel nurse candidates. Additionally, there are some premium recruitment features, but at least you have the ability to try it for free before you upgrade to anything else.
NurseRecruiter is a job board built to connect nurses with employers, and vice versa. Their database is mostly structured around travel nursing, per diem nursing, and staff nurses across the nation. Additionally, NurseRecruiter states that employers have the ability to filter search results in the database, and that you can expect an active database – not a stale nurse list. The pricing is competitive, and built around the company size and hiring needs of the organization.
