By September 1, 2021No Comments

Attracting top-tier talent is crucial for any successful facility or hospital, especially when it comes to hiring nurses.

A Hospital & Healthcare Compensation Services (HCS) survey, published in 2021, found the national turnover rate for RNs increased from 34.81% in 2020 to 40.45% in 2021, while CNA turnover also increased from 41.08% to 45.87% during the same period.

A recruitment video, instead of a text-based job description, not only establishes a connection with the hiring team and leadership, but also attracts the attention of professionals who could make a huge impact with both staff and patients.
