Today Paul Wells attended the Chief Nursing Officer Summit in Atlanta, GA. Paul had the opportunity to speak with an array of hospitals, who are all feeling the impact of the current nursing shortage here in the US, and managed to publicize CareerKnacks Ltd. and enlighten on how they could leverage our services to assist in filling their void of specialized nurses.
Additional follow-up meetings have been scheduled outside of the Summit with some of these Hospitals, to explain in greater detail about the services the company offers with the goal of attracting new business and opportunities for the placement of International Nurses in the US.
With the passing of the Brexit referendum, the number of EU nurses registering in the UK has dropped by a whopping 92% since last June. This news is made even worse by the release of data showing that 68% of currently employed EU nurses in the UK have also left the health service. While this leaves the UK with a huge gap in available nursing positions, it also means that a record number of nurses from the EU are now facing an uncertain future.
Fueled by passion for helping our nurses and a healthy dose of coffee and chocolate biscuits, our recruiters are the best in the business.

There are so many requirements put on our nurses, with long shifts, additional responsibilities, and being short-staffed it’s surprising to us mortals that they can handle it all. Nurses need to have a special combination of skills to excel at their jobs, and it’s what makes us admire them that much more. On the one hand they need to be quick on their feet (figuratively and literally!), have a high level of professionalism and excellent communication skills. And on the other, they need to have empathy for their patients, stamina, and a solid sense of humor. That’s why we love the recent post from Minority Nurse about the skills that set the great nurses apart from the rest. We are sharing five great qualities, but head to Minority Nurse to continue reading.
