Case study:
The medical field has faced an increased demand due to an aging population. Trends contributing to the shortage of nurses across the country include not enough graduates from nursing programs and long hours required of the career. The shortage of nurses throughout the country has resulted in higher salaries. Larger hospitals and medical centers are offering numerous incentives to attract nurses. Some of the incentives include housing, repayment of college loans, and generous benefit packages.

You are the human resources recruiting team for a Tri-County Hospital located in a community with 25,000 people. Currently your hospital has openings for six registered nurses. The owner of your hospital (judge) is an investor who does not keep informed about the latest medical trends. The owner's bottom line is making a profit. They do not understand the current shortage of nurses and the higher salaries. The owner has asked for your advice on attracting good nurses from all over the country. You must explain a strategy to attract good candidates and keep them. You must explain why salaries for registered nurses have risen dramatically. Your presentation must include information about pay and special incentives. You also must explain where you will recruit the best registered nurse candidates.

Members of the HR recruiting team are responsible for developing relationships with the finest schools throughout the nation that offer nursing degrees. You are challenged to find the best nursing candidates throughout the nation.

Why is there a shortage of nurses? What are the strengths and weaknesses for a smaller community that is trying to attract nurses to the local hospital? Why should special incentives be considered for this HR situation? What is the strategy to keep happy registered nurses so they are not allured by a more attractive offer?
