Why is the Index Important?

  • This index will help employers create better strategic plans based on real-time hiring data.
  • Assist in predicting recruitment advertising costs as well as the “time to find” registered nurse candidates.
  • Tracking the index can help identify the most optimal times of the year to open new searches for registered nurses.
  • Organizations planning for expansion or acquisition can predict the degree of difficulty on staffing up during certain times of the year.
  • By tracking both mobile and desktop indexes separately, we are measuring how nurses are finding the jobs over time as well.
