Talent Specialists Help Keep Bismarck Hospital Staffed

Posted: Updated:

If you're not familiar with HR lingo, a Talent Acquisition Specialist is someone who's hired by the hospital to recruit employees. And now, they're on the hunt for nurses.

"Two years ago we didn't have to go outside the state of North Dakota to find nurses," says Talent Acquisition Specialist, Tabitha Beede.

Recruiters tell me they're not there because St. A's is having problems keeping them on staff. They're there because the number of patients coming in on a daily basis is outgrowing the number of nurses banging down hospital doors looking for jobs.

"Well now, we have all these people," says Beede. "We have all these people coming to North Dakota who are getting all these jobs. All these families are being transplanted, and with that, we need more nurses to take care of them."

And not only do hospitals need nurses, recruiters say they also have to be ready to pay.

"It's challenging," says Talent Management Coordinator, Janelle Frederick. "There's a lot of high-paying jobs out there, even at McDonald's and KMart and facilities like that. So, we've just got to stay competitive in our market."

Yes, hiring more staff is expensive, but when it comes to a bottom line, recruiters say being able to utilize their already-experienced staff will be helpful.

"We want to use their experience and their talents to help train our new employees," says Frederick. "And provide their service, their talents that they have and incorporate it into our new employees."

Nurses may be in high demand these days, but that's not stopping St. A's from continuing to search. A search for quality care in a hospital that's been serving our community for more than a century.
