Filling nursing positions faster

12-Apr-2016

“The upfront work is much quicker, which allows us to fill a nursing position sooner. I’m no longer four to six weeks without an employee. The process is streamlined.”

Managers in medicine inpatient units can now fill an entry level nursing position in four days, rather than the previous eight.

New work standards have enabled Human Resources to publish a job posting 87 per cent faster (now 39 min.); improved communication between HR and unit managers; and ensure expectations are clear between new hires and managers.

Reduction in overtime costs due to gaps in filling jobs are expected to be significant.
