Nursing

Inside the program: Hiring and promoting

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, November 8, 2010

Nursing leaders make many decisions. One of the most important decisions any manager makes is whom they hire (or promote.) Hiring/promoting the best talent makes your job much more rewarding and enjoyable, but also easier. Consider yourself the gatekeeper of your culture. You, as the hiring manager, determine who gets in, who gets access to power and advancement, and who must leave.

Your hiring decision can have four possible results. You can:

  • Hire a great nurse
  • Hire an under-qualified nurse
  • Reject a great nurse
  • Reject an under-qualified nurse
