As I am running a recruiting project searching for Registered Nurses in NYC and Indianapolis, the main challenge remains. It is finding potential candidates’ contact information or ways to message.
Compared, for example, to IT sourcing, I am finding that the Social Media presence of RNs is much lower. However, the web is rich with all sorts of Healthcare-related lists. There are great directories of specialized RNs – like pediatrics, dialysis, or ER, but I need to find “just” RNs with two-plus years of experience. There are plenty of those, too.
- site:nursingnetwork.com/users – a zillion directories by location and interest. There is no contact info but you can join, become friends, and message. Alternatively, X-Ray (but the results are limited): site:nursingnetwork.com/nurses.
- https://bearsofficialsstore.com has a directory of the University of Michigan among others. No contacts but a nice level of detail and good coverage.
- allnurses.com – it’s a forum and members mention their emails in conversations. I found ~2K emails looking for posts from RNs, with a location mentioned, and the match on Recruiter was excellent.
Below is a list of State Boards of Nursing websites. On some, you can search and scrape, on others, you need a name to search. Typically, they would have the zip code, license number, and validity, and name, of course.
