Finding healthcare talent isn’t always easy, often causing organizations to take shortcuts and hire less-than-ideal employees when labor demand is high. Because of the growing physician shortage, it’s important to make nurse practitioner recruiting a top priority in the hiring process. This is because nurse practitioners are well suited to fill in the void and improve patient care outcomes when there is a shortage of physicians at your organization. Partnering with a staffing firm can prove to be very beneficial when recruiting for top notch nurse practitioners.
Staffing firms know how to identify and recruit candidates who are best positioned to fill their clients’ temporary and permanent hiring needs during times of transition. First, staffing firms know how to find candidates who are fully credentialed and equipped to handle the expectations that come along with being part of your workplace. At MPLT Healthcare (formerly MedPartners Locum Tenens) , our recruiters know how to navigate any licensing or credentialing concerns that may arise throughout the recruitment and screening process. This helps to alleviate the stress and aggravation that typically comes along with the onboarding process.
Additionally, a staffing partner can ensure you hire nurse practitioners with the right set of soft skills.

Recruiters are experts at evaluating which candidates have the “people skills” required to excel within a certain medical environment. When you work directly with a staffing partner, you can rest assured your organization will be matched only with candidates who have the potential to thrive within your culture and work environment.
