Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: While the vacancy rate at this Magnet Hospital was consistently below 3%, it was noted that there was considerable variation in effective interviewing and selection of new RN hires. In addition, nurse leaders identified an opportunity to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the qualifications of RN candidates to maximize alignment between the organization?s high standards and candidate ability, and to increase the likelihood of candidate success. Theoretical constructs from organizational development such as person-organization, person-job, person-supervisor and person-workgroup fit will be drawn upon and applied to the nurse recruiting environment, along with literature review citing the consequences of failure to entertain these considerations in hiring decisions. The reciprocal relationship between the initial cultivation of a Magnet environment and creation of a long-term approach to becoming increasingly selective in choosing staff will be discussed. The core value of considering new hires as the "next generation" of nursing leadership for the organization and its implications for selectivity criteria will also be explored. Strategies to be presented included establishing a nurse internship program, defining recruitment criteria in relation to mission and nursing vision, the use of a screening interview for person-organization fit, establishing inter-rater reliability among interviewing directors, and requiring nurses who are not baccalaureate prepared to be actively enrolled in a BSN program within 12 months of hire.
