Good evening! I am planning on going to nursing school
in the next ten years but before that I have just been hired on at a hospital as the sole recruiter and I will mostly recruit nurses. They are building a new, state of the art hospital and will need to almost double their nursing staff with a mix of new grads and experienced nurses. My boss is looking for new and creative recruiting ideas. He's very much a "think outside of the box" kind of guy and wants to attract the best nurses possible. The old hospital has been around for a long time and even though it is a quality insitution it is not one of the "hot" choices for nurses. People just don't know about us, although they certainly will soon enough!
Anyway, I was hoping that some of the nurses here could share with me how they were recruited to their position and if they have seen any really different recruitment methods. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

What attracted me most to my current job are the following:
1. Signing bonus of $25,000 for 3 year contract,
2. Moving allowance of up to $3,000
4. Point system based on different working conditions
(ex. Working on a different area = 30 points.
Working on Holidays = 50 points. 1 point = $1.00)
5. Health Benefits
6. 401K and 403b plans.
Get to know what other facilities have to offer and explain to your potential recruits what you have that other places don't.
