Hirenurses.com’s mission is simple: We want to redefine nursing; one nurse; one life; and one community at a time.
One Nurse: At our core, it will always be about our nurses. Perceptive, compassionate, and honorable defines our nurses. From nursing students, CNA’s to PhD’s and retirees, this is our family.
One Life: We embrace the ebbs and flows of life from conception to conclusion. We believe individuals deserve dignity, respect and to live with the highest quality.
One Community: It’s about human connections. We build relationships. We foster confidence. We believe in the human spirit. We are committed to redefining nursing.
Our goal: Is to create an online nursing community where nurses can easily find opportunities and professional advancement, employers can find talented nurses and families can find appropriate nursing care.
Our platform: Provides a vehicle for nurses to highlight their education, skills and talent to both employers and families in a highly-fragmented marketplace. It also allows employers and families a simple platform to find appropriate nursing needs.
The nursing industry: Has been and always will be a vital part of the medical industry. Understanding this, Hirenurses.com has dedicated itself to addressing the daily needs of nurses and the people they care for.
Founders: Co-founded by the mother and daughter team of Rebecca and Patricia Love, they wanted to transform how the nursing industry functions after seeing families struggling to find care and nurses struggling to find jobs. Not one site specialized in nursing careers and that’s when HireNurses.com was created.
Hirenurses.com, a Boston based company, launched in 2014 to address this gap in the nursing community. Hirenurses.com’s online platform helps nurses make career decisions by connecting them to career opportunities. We want our nurses to be recruited for their skill sets and to find opportunities that will keep them practicing from their first day of their nursing career to their last.
In the midst of winter 2013, the idea of HireNurses.com was created after witnessing another group of my recent nursing graduates struggle to find jobs. I had spent an afternoon in my office, with several students, redoing their resumes and giving words of encouragement that they will find that perfect nursing job. As I thought about the tough nursing job market, I reflected back on my own experience of finding a nursing job and realized I too had spent hours and weeks searching various websites looking for a job opening – even though when I had graduated there was no shortage of nursing jobs. This same week, a family of a hospice patient of mine made the agonizing decision to place their loved one in a nursing home, after they could not find a nurse to help care for their loved one in their home.
I went online and started searching – and quickly realized there wasn’t one place a nurse could go to find nursing jobs (from the home to the hospital) – or those who would like to hire nurses (from individuals to hospitals) could go and find nurses who were actively looking for employment. Not one site specialized in nursing careers and that is when HireNurses.com was created.
Over the course of the next year, we built HireNurses.com with the focus on nurses and those wanting to hire nurses in mind. We created a revolutionary system to make the lives of our nurses and employers easy and intuitive. We built in features we’d like to have when searching for a job – or when screening applicants. We created an internal messaging and account system – where you can keep track of and personal notes on jobs/nurses you viewed, an internal messaging system that doesn’t clutter up your inbox, and we allow nurses to upload and store their nursing documents (everything from their resume to their CEUs – no more paper files cluttering up your desks). Besides that – we created a system where you create and view customize profiles – including references and background checks.
But we didn’t stop there, we partnered with major companies to bring our nurses discounts on products they use the most – Allheart.com which provides a 10% discount to HireNurses.com members on everything from scrubs to stethoscopes. Kaplan NCLEX, $150 discount off NCLEX review classes, 20% off CPR classes and more to come. We partnered with a leading background check company, Victig, who specializes in background checks pertinent in the medical field, and also with Marsh Insurance for our nurses to buy liability insurance.
We then put together a line up of bloggers on a variety of topics that we believe our members will find useful, intriguing, and beneficial. From a Professional Tutor for Nursing Students, to a leading Nutritionist/Herbalist, to a Father of a Child with Special Needs, an Occupational Therapist for Children, to a Nurse Patient Advocate, we looked to span topics that would truly enhance the lives of our members.
And there is so much more to come! Stay tuned for the additions we’ll be unveiling in the coming months. And if you or a friend is either a nurse looking for new opportunities – or someone looking to hire nurses – please join HireNurses.com. Connecting you with Nurses – Connecting Nurses with Opportunities.
