The number of licensed and certified
nurse practitioners is staggering. The actual number is upwards of
3.1 million of which 85% are actually working in the nursing field.
These revealing statistics however can be
somewhat disappointing to employers that are seeking stable and highly-qualified nurse practitioners. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports
that there are 8.5 nurses per 1,000 people. Additionally there are
more nurses than doctors by a ratio of 10 nurses to 3 doctors.
Taking all of these facts into
consideration we realize that there is a shortage of about 120,000
nurses which is predicted to worsen to 500,000.
Due to the profession’s average advanced
personnel the gap between the highly trained and moderately
skilled candidates as well as employment competition from other
professions and also within, we recognize that the need is critical.
Our recruiters are trained to respond in
a pro-active manner by selecting only those nurse practitioner candidates with the highest
technical qualifications as well as a personality befitting the
staff, doctors and patients they will be working with.
At our medical staffing agency, we keep
these goals at the top of our list so we can
work each day for the betterment of our client companies, candidates
and the medical community in general.
