How to find opportunities in health-care field

How many professions do you know that are always hiring? Health care is one, according to the manager of recruitment and staffing strategy at Fletcher Allen, the largest employer in the state with about 7,000 employees.

“I look back over the last couple of years in a very down economy and we have always been hiring,” Karen Vincent said. “It doesn’t mean it’s easy to get a job. It’s very competitive. When you talk about patient care you want to hire the very best. But there hasn’t been a time when we weren’t hiring.”

The positions that are available in health care are diverse, and include part-time, full-time and temporary jobs. Health care companies are not just looking for nurses however. Vincent said Fletcher Allen has about 150 job openings at any given time.

“It really does run the gamut, but if I think of jobs right now that are hard to fill, I think about an LPN (licensed practical nurse) position in one of our outpatient clinics, and our audiologist position in St. Albans,” Vincent said. “We are often looking for strong practice supervisor positions to run our outpatient clinics. It’s great if they have a health care background and a business background. We also are looking for a manager of accounting. We are often looking for licensed nurse assistants, and registration representatives.”

Got A Nursing Shortage; Why a nursing agency should be your first point of contact

The last 10 years has seen a dramatic shortage of well qualified nursing staff. Many sectors of the healthcare industry ranging from hospitals to care homes have felt the effect of these shortages. A growing number of cases have been reported which can be directly attributed to undervalued and overworked nursing staff. Most people would now agree that nurses are under more pressure than ever before.Such levels of stress and aggravation are causing increasing numbers of valuable staff to leave this profession.

There are many reasons for these nursing shortages.

Hospitals Begin to Require BSNs, Aren’t Waiting on BSN in 10 Legislation

As more hospitals seek the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s coveted Magnet recognition, a recent but quiet trend has been slowly making its way into the nursing world: hospitals are requiring their nurses to either return to school for their bachelor’s degrees or have a BSN before applying.

Hospitals are not waiting for the outcome of the highly publicized “BSN in 10” bills — S4051/A2079B in New York and S620 (nee S2529)/A3768 in New Jersey — that are still awaiting closure in both legislatures, it seems, and are taking it upon themselves to get the ball rolling.

This July, Long Island, N.Y.’s North Shore-LIJ Health System shattered the silence by announcing its “BSN in 5” plan. Newly hired RNs would be required to possess a BSN degree or enroll in a BSN program within 24 months of their date of hire and obtain one within five years.
