3 Medical Staffing Trends to Look for in the Second Half of 2019

Every year brings with it exciting new trends and changes in how the healthcare industry operates and attracts new workers. At Nurse Earth, we are always looking ahead to the future to see how we can best anticipate and meet the needs of all of our nurse and healthcare partners. What medical staffing trends are on the horizon in the second half of 2019?

C-Suite Roles Are Shifting

Machine learning and artificial intelligence are no longer hard to find in healthcare organizations. As they increase in prominence and relevance to predict and treat conditions, many organizations are expected to create Chief Data Analytics Officer and Chief Innovation Officer positions. As a result, it’s anticipated that the Chief Nursing Informatics Officer (CNIO) role will also become more popular. While only 14% of hospitals today have CNIOs, that number is anticipated to rise. The presence of a CNIO is a powerful tool for nurses, who can look to this leader for both clinical nursing expertise and in-depth understanding of IT.

Increasing Demand for Skilled Nurses

As the number of seniors rises, and our lifespans continue to extend, the nursing shortage is expected to become even more intense. Hospitals will need to find new ways to recruit and train nurses. One of the medical staffing trends that we anticipate as a result of this is more hospitals and nursing homes choosing to partner with staffing agencies like Nurse Earth. Thanks to our proprietary peer-to-peer clinical review process, we ensure that all candidates we present are skilled and ready to work. Instead of investing all of your time and financial resources into independently finding skilled nurses, you can rely on Nurse Earth.

A Need for Customized Screening

In tandem with the increasing need for skilled nurses, it is also anticipated that hospitals and nursing homes will need candidates who have undergone specialized screening. Healthcare organizations simply don’t have the time and resources to complete background checks and screen every candidate forwarded their way if they are not qualified! Nurse staffing and recruiting agencies like Nurse Earth require clients to undergo a thorough screening process before they are ever presented to a client. This accelerates the hiring process and prevents clients from wasting time and money on inadequate hires.
