Growth of the Nursing Industry
Over the past decade, the nursing industry has experienced significant growth, as the demand for qualified healthcare professionals has steadily increased. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of registered nurses is projected to grow by 7% from 2019 to 2029, adding over 221,000 new jobs to the industry. However, despite the growing need for nurses, the industry continues to face nursing shortages, especially in certain regions and healthcare specialties. This has resulted in hospitals and other healthcare facilities struggling to recruit and retain qualified nurses, often leading to increased workloads and decreased quality of care for patients. To address these challenges, nursing organizations and industry leaders have worked to promote nursing education and support recruitment efforts to help fill the growing hiring needs in the field.
Common Challenges in Finance and Banking Talent Acquisition
There are some common challenges that are inherent to the talent screening process in the finance and banking industry. For example, talent acquisition professionals have to deal with:
Challenges With Hiring in the Nursing Industry
Statistics show that only 19% of registered nurses are from diverse ethnic backgrounds. Moreover, only 10% of nursing leaders represent minorities. As such, increasing diversity in the workforce has become a priority in the healthcare industry.
Another challenge in nursing recruitment is the time it takes to fill a new nursing position. Studies indicate that it takes an average of 46 days to fill a nursing position, while it takes up to 78 days in some states. These delays are mostly due to the increasing demand for nurses as well as the current nursing shortage.
Nurse retention is another critical challenge. 27% of new nurses quit within the first year of employment, which increases to 61% by the end of the third year. This is a cause for concern as it negatively impacts patient care and hospital budgets. Addressing these challenges requires a concerted effort from nursing institutions and stakeholders in the healthcare industry.
Hiring and Growth in Phlebotomy
According to a report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of phlebotomists is projected to grow 17% from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations. The increasing demand for phlebotomy services has also presented significant challenges for healthcare providers looking to hire qualified professionals. One major challenge is the shortage of skilled and experienced phlebotomists, which is reflected in the average hourly wage of $16.57 per hour. Many healthcare providers face difficulties recruiting and retaining diverse and multicultural phlebotomists to meet the diverse needs of their patients. Despite these challenges, the growth of the Phlebotomy industry presents tremendous opportunities for those interested in a career in healthcare and phlebotomy training programs that will produce the required competent workforce.
Powerful Features for Nursing and Phlebotomy Talent Search Professionals
Many talent professionals and recruiters in the nursing and phlebotomy industries rely on applicant tracking systems and job databases, although some are small enough that they may not. ThisWay offers a set of specialized features designed to streamline your hiring process within these sectors, known as “Attract,” “Discover,” “Reveal,” and “Score.”
Numerous healthcare practices actively invest in job board postings and automated talent recruitment solutions. Unfortunately, not all of these tools make it simple to sift through the influx of resumes received. Attract operates much like a traditional job board but exclusively shares your job posting with qualified candidates within ThisWay’s network. This feature allows organizations to save valuable time by attracting the right candidates from the outset, while also serving as a valuable step to prevent unqualified candidates from advancing to interviews.
Discover is an invaluable tool for recruiters in the nursing and phlebotomy industries seeking suitable candidates within ThisWay’s network. If you have specific skill sets in mind for a candidate, you can conveniently explore the network to identify individuals who match your criteria and then extend invitations to apply for open positions.
For healthcare practices equipped with applicant tracking systems, the Reveal feature within ThisWay seamlessly integrates with your existing systems and job databases. This integration proves highly beneficial, as approximately 15% of all hires within the healthcare sector often come from internal candidates. Leveraging Reveal simplifies the process of tapping into your past candidates, optimizing your recruitment efforts.
Score is another valuable feature within ThisWay, particularly beneficial for smaller healthcare organizations without an established applicant database. With Score, you can effortlessly upload your job description, which will undergo ethical AI debiasing, and rank candidates for most fit for the role based solely on skills. This feature proves indispensable in helping smaller healthcare organizations identify and secure the talent they require to excel in their respective fields.
