Nursefinders is Filling a Rising Demand for Nurses
By Tina Hansen
The healthcare landscape is changing, and demand for nurses is growing. For more than 40 years, Nursefinders has provided staffing resources for a full array of nurses nationwide—from Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN)/ Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) to radiology and imaging professionals, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and lab technicians. Nursefinders has placed more than 3.5 million nurses in over 10 million shifts and 32 million home care visits.
Founded by Larry Carr in 1974 in Arlington, Texas, Nursefinders evolved into one of the largest and most respected medical staffing and home healthcare companies in the country. In 1978, Carr expanded his business and began franchising Nursefinders. Today, Nursefinders has 49 offices across the country; 19 that are independently owned franchises.
Four years ago, Nursefinders opened an office in Hacienda, and now they have a staff of 200 active nurses serving the Pleasanton community.
No matter how much they grow, the core value of Nursefinders remains the same. For healthcare employers, this means a service that ensures patients receive quality care every day. For nurses, NurseFinders provides job opportunities and greater flexibility.
From their office in Hacienda, Nursefinders can send professional, well trained nurses to the East Bay Area, including Berkeley, Fremont, Hayward, Livermore, Union City, Walnut Creek, and Concord.
“Having an office in centrally located Hacienda is ideal for our staff. Most of our recruitment is virtual, but for nurses that live close to the office they are welcome to stop by and use our computers to search for open jobs,” said Jamal Alston Branch Manager.
With constant developments in healthcare, it is critical for nurses to stay on top of current issues and the latest technology. Nursefinders maintains the highest quality standards by continually monitoring regulations and trends. They are an active member of The American Staffing Association and the preferred provider of clinical vendor management services for VHA Inc. member hospitals.
The healthcare job market is rapidly expanding. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that healthcare jobs accounted for one out of every five new jobs created in 2016. The BLS also reported that registered nurse (RN) is one of the fastest growing occupations in the country, with an increase of 16% projected through 2024.
There are currently more than 76.4 million “baby boomers,” in the United States who need increasing care as they age. Moreover, millions more insured through the ACA are now accessing healthcare services for the first time. As a result, the demand for nurses has never been greater. Because of this pivotal role nursing will play in the growing healthcare industry, the future looks bright for Nursfinders.
