Abstract:
Recruitment is the #1 Retention Strategy! We began our journey of improving our RN retention and recruitment, with the idea that it will require numerous complex processes and strategies. After six months of sweat and tears in researching and designing a 6-phase process that was inclusive of recruitment and retention, surprisingly, we discovered that our first innovative recruitment strategy alone closed the majority of our recruitment and retention gaps. Our innovation in recruitment is a concept we call, Quality Matching (QM). QM is used to determine the right fit, between an applicant and a nursing position. The components of this unique practice are designed to attract quality rather than a quantity of applicants. We will demonstrate the correlation between recruiting quality applicants and overall RN retention. QM components are 1. Foundations of Excellence-Professional Practice Scope and Standards o Leadership o Practitioner o Scientist o Knowledge Transfer Novice to Expert 2. Applicant Assessment 3. Unit Culture Assessment 4. Critical Decision Making The outcomes of QM have been: 1.) a reduction of less than 1 year RN turnover from 40% to 10%; 2.) increased job satisfaction of new hires regarding unit placement; 3.) increased hiring of role competent RNs instead of task-based or skill-based RNs; and 5.) an applicant waiting list for RN positions. Objectives: At the end of the session, the participant will be able to: o Identify the value of QM. o Describe the components of QM. o Identify 2 action steps on how to implement QM.
