The U.S. healthcare system is in desperate need of nursing professionals. The country’s longstanding nursing staff shortage has been made worse by the pandemic, with additional demand for healthcare services and employee departures combining to create large gaps in the workforce.
Now is the time for trained healthcare personnel to take advantage of the opportunities available to them.
Which healthcare jobs are in demand?
Nursing was ranked at No. 5 in LinkedIn’s most in-demand occupations list earlier this year, and there is no sign of that changing. There are 1.5 million Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) employed in the U.S.A. alone, a figure that is expected to increase by approximately 138,000 each year until 2028.
These roles require individuals to provide compassionate care for patients, maintaining their comfort and safety as directed by the lead nurse. This can include feeding, bathing, grooming and bathroom assistance.
Who should apply?
Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) and Registered Nurse (RN) positions are available for qualified applicants over the age of 18. If the candidate’s license is for one specific State or Territory, the candidate will be permitted to obtain licensure in the new state after relocation.
To be considered for a nursing role, applicants must possess the required licensure/certification, as well as excellent patient care and communication skills. This includes the ability to speak, read and understand the English language in order to communicate effectively with patients and staff. Other desirable skills and traits:
• Pre-emptive problem solving
• Time management
• Selfless attitude (enjoy helping others)
• Compassion and empathy
• Strong moral values
Nursing is physically and emotionally demanding. Shifts can be long and involve lifting and moving patients, standing, walking, pushing, pulling, crouching, and kneeling.
Where are the jobs located?
BullsEye is currently filling positions at several locations in the state of Delaware, with employee housing available. Additional healthcare roles are expected to become available in other U.S. regions in the upcoming months.
Applicants from Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories and commonwealths
With around 1 in 5 U.S. healthcare workers having left the profession over the last two years, the workforce in mainland U.S.A. has faced severe challenges. As a result, employers are hiring individuals who are relocating from U.S. territories and commonwealths, such as Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands.
Recruiting healthcare professionals from U.S. territories is a great option when filling positions quickly. Individuals from these regions are classified as U.S. citizens and are therefore authorized to work in the United States. Job seekers that are looking to relocate to the mainland can browse jobs on BullsEye’s dedicated Facebook page.
BullsEye has assistance programs in place to make relocating as easy as possible, including pre-arranged employee housing and travel assistance.
When it comes to relocation, finding a new home is among the most challenging tasks. BullsEye understands this, which is why pre-arranged housing options are offered to new employees. The BullsEye will organize safe, affordable housing for new employees, with basic furnishings and utility bills included in the rent.
If relocation requires travel by air, train or bus, BullsEye will assist with financial obligations. BullsEye’s Ticket Purchase Program provides workers with a one-way ticket to their destination, which they repay once working. After six months of work, the ticket price is credited back to the employee. BullsEye provides pick-up at the airport, bus or train station and will help employees settle into their new housing and job.
BullsEye has decades of experience in sourcing and relocating employees all over the United States. Our team offers a professional service for candidates, guiding them throughout the process with continued support, advice, and encouragement.
