HireNurses is Growing to Combat Nursing Shortage
Online PR News – 10-May-2016 – New York City/New York – Talent Tech Labs (TTL) is pleased to announce its latest partnership with healthcare talent acquisition startup, HireNurses, on the eve of National Nurses Week (May 6-12). Currently, HireNurses is a job listing and matching platform specifically for job seeking nurses and healthcare employers. With their enrollment into the Talent Tech Lab Virtual Incubation program, they will dramatically expand the functionality and ease of use for this destination site for nurses.
“We’re really excited to take on a company with a focus on disrupting talent acquisition specifically in the healthcare industry,” said TTL Executive Director Jonathan Kestenbaum. “HireNurses already has thousands of nurses using the platform, and the healthcare recruiting space is growing exponentially.”
Nurse Practitioner, Founder, and CEO Rebecca Love launched HireNurses.com in September 2014. “We started with about 100 nurses, and 16 months later we are approaching 7,000 nurses and certified nursing assistants nationwide making us one of the largest nurse recruitment platforms in the United States,” Love said.
In the program, HireNurses will be accelerating the business, relaunching its platform and preparing for a seed round financing. The updated site will remain true to the company’s vision of putting nurses in the spotlight, featuring highly customizable profiles, blog integration, dynamic Nurse of the Month Awards, exclusive discounts, and access to unique opportunities such as international mission trips. Companies will experience ease when seeking to hire nurses, with the ability to identify and select the most suitable candidates.
“We signed with Talent Tech Lab’s incubator program to create the best talent acquisition platform for nurses in the world. TTL are experts in understanding talent platforms and applying matching technologies that connect employers with talent, and what features are key to success,” Love continued. With the AP reporting a "long-standing" U.S. shortage of registered nurses expecting to worsen over the next seven years, this ease cannot come soon enough. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 233,000 additional jobs for registered nurses will open each year through 2016, in addition to about 2.5 million existing positions.
