Specialized Nurse Recruitment for a Not-For-Profit Healthcare System

A not-for-profit healthcare system serving the New England area of the United States engaged PeopleScout to help find specialized nursing candidates through a project-based recruitment solution.

6 Weeks to Fill Vacancies that Had Been Open for Over a Year
13 Week Engagement Renewed—Twice
Improved Quality of Hire

This healthcare facility is the only level III NICU and level I trauma center in the region. Offering this kind of specialized medical care requires specialized nursing recruiting. The client’s HR team had difficulty sourcing candidates who met the minimum education and experience requirements.

The client engaged PeopleScout for Recruiter On-Demand™ project-based recruitment solution to hire nurses at two facilities, included labor and delivery nurses, surgical nurses and emergency nurses.


PeopleScout deployed a Recruiter On-Demand solution with virtual recruiters working alongside the client’s internal TA team by sourcing and recruiting specialized nursing talent.

Our recruiters developed a close relationship with the client’s hiring managers to better understand their needs and company culture. This helped us to source candidates that closely aligned with the organization’s values and expectations.

To attract nursing talent in a competitive labor market, PeopleScout positioned the client’s employer value proposition to better align with candidate expectations for career growth, sign-on bonuses and educational assistance. We also monitored the regional labor market and identified recruiting opportunities at competitors or facilities closing operations or laying-off staff.

Our healthcare experts also posted on job boards and updated content regularly on niche healthcare sites, social media and medical association sites to source both active and passive candidates.


Unfilled Positions Sourced Within Six Weeks

In the first six weeks, PeopleScout sourced and hired nurses for eight vacancies that had been unfilled for a year.

Contract Renewed

As a result of the success of the program, the client renewed its initial 13-week project RPO contract with PeopleScout, not once but twice.

Dedication and a Quality Partnership

The healthcare system’s HR team valued the quality of candidates our dedicated nursing recruiting brought to the table, and the relationship continued to improve with each engagement.
