question about hiring

Nurses General Nursing


hi all.

When (if) your agency or office is hiring for more nurses, how do you advertise? One of my co-workers is in this huge tiff because we are hiring two new nurses from an ad in She feels that we should have gone through a more "traditional" route in the paper. Now, last time I check that wasn't even a traditional way to hire.

Can anyone help me out here?

At least if you hire through an online method, you're at least upping the likelihood of getting someone computer literate. That's pretty important nowadays. It's how I got my current job and I'm sure that applicants who applied the "traditional" way were at a disadvantage.

I agree it's not really her concern how the office hires as long as they get someone decent :).

(And the last time I had occasion to use the regular classifieds for a non-nurse position there was a pretty scary parade of humanity, most of whom didn't even meet the criteria we listed in the ad. If I was that co-worker, I'd just be grateful not to have to be involved at all in the hiring process ;).)

I Would Not Care How Someone Else Got Their Job.....but I Would Probably Be A Way Of Weeding Out Before You Saw Someone Face To Face Maybe You Would Get Some Referals And Decline To Grant Someone Else An Appointment.....
