When a hospital or clinic needs an LPN or RN, they often go to nurse recruiters for help in filling the position. Nurse recruiters are responsible for matching qualified candidates to a healthcare facility. Their goal is to find top talent before rival hospitals and clinics do.
Once a nurse finds a batch of candidates, she is responsible for checking their credentials, which includes verifying all educational and licensing information, and may also involve a standard background check. Depending on the institution a nurse recruiter works for, she may have the added duty of interviewing and hiring candidates. Some facilities prefer to complete this process themselves, and others may want to do it in conjunction with the recruiter. It depends on the hiring facility’s desires.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects a faster than average growth rate of 21% for recruiter positions by 2020. Because of the ever-growing demand for nurses, nurse recruiter jobs will likely experience an even higher growth rate.
Nurse recruiter jobs are usually with a private company that works with many healthcare facilities, although some are with specific institutions. Often, nurse recruiters are RNs or NPs. This first-hand experience in nursing gives the recruiter added expertise in choosing a great nurse.
