Hire Nurses

Nurses, especially RNs or registered nurses, deliver primary care as home care aides and health personnel or aides, nursing assistants in major hospitals, and practical nurses. A nurse’s monthly salary is an average of $6,129, which is $73,550 a year. Hiring a nurse might pose a challenge as the cost is high, competition is high, and the supply of qualified personnel is relatively low.

How to hire a nurse

If hiring an in-home nurse, identify the needs and limitations of the patient, including a list of likes and dislikes. Assess your expectations and review what the physician recommends. Remember that medical care insurances like Medicare or Medicaid require a report confirming the need for personal care or home care.

The next step is to send out applications and specify your needs; including specific work hours, responsibilities, patient requirements, and medications, etc. Prescreen the nurse applicants using your special needs as a guide. Be sure to include factors such as: experience in years, qualifications, background, home area, etc.

Know the challenges of hiring a nurse

Selecting a nurse can pose many challenges. First, consider whether they will be offering long-distance assistance, whether the patient is safe alone at home, or whether the patient requires constant monitoring (as in the case of patients with amnesia or dementia). Second, consider whether they will need specific physical skills to help patients who are not mobile or who are learning to use a wheelchair. Children would require passionate and friendly personalities in their caregivers. Creativity in time management and continued desire to learn and grow are an added advantages. You may require a hiring agency or consult a nursing registry to save you from the hiring hassle by arranging for prescreened applicants.

Typical requirements for a nurse role

Healthcare employers need a nurse with a solid background, knowledge of current best practices, and several years of experience. Ensure that they have the right work certificates, insurance, are covered for emergencies, and are available for your patient's duration of treatment. Speaking a similar language to that of the patient(s) is an added advantage. 

Summary

To hire a nurse, make a list of your needs, those of the patient or loved one, and the qualifications you need in assessing the applications. Keep work hours as one of your needs and explain in detail the responsibilities. Hire a trained nurse based on caregiving knowledge, personality, and responsible/reliable behavior.
