Healthcare Staffing Challenges
It’s no secret that our country is facing a severe shortage of healthcare workers. According to research conducted by Mercer, a global healthcare consultant, the U.S. will need to hire over 2 million healthcare employees by 2025, with a large portion of those being for home health aides and nursing assistants.
With so much demand for qualified candidates, it is becoming increasingly difficult for facilities to find and retain talented new certified nursing assistants (CNAs). That’s where we step in to help.
Our Services: 3 Ways We Work Together
Throughout our years of experience working with a variety of healthcare providers, we’ve learned that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to these staffing challenges. We’ve developed several services to assist healthcare employers with their CNA staffing needs.
There are many people who are open to becoming a CNA, but they just don’t know how quick, easy and cost-effective the process can be. We find those individuals, make sure they are a fit for your institution, and, if you offer to sponsor their education, we will train them and have them ready to work as a CNA on day one of employment with you.
This means no more ads or open houses, and no more fighting with competitors over talent. Premier Nursing Academy provides you with peace of mind that your future team—already vetted by you before they start class or clinical hours—will be well-trained and will understand what exceptional resident or patient care means to you. In addition, you can plan your workforce knowing that sponsored graduates of Premier Nursing Academy come expecting to stay in your employment for at least the specified period, if not far longer.
Is your challenge more of a training limitation rather than a recruitment issue? We understand that many facilities prefer to find and hire their own talent but still need a solution to train these candidates. We can easily step in at this point in the process and provide complete training and licensure facilitation for your new CNA recruits.
Many organizations have staff members who provide essential services in their current role but could advance in their career path by receiving training to become a CNA. If you identify individuals within your company who have the potential to excel in a CNA role, we can provide the training to get them started in a position that can propel their career forward.
The Value We Bring
Because of Premier Nursing Academy’s training model, our employer partners get:
- Employees who know they’re working for you before they start training, which can focus their learning during the program
- Employees who are committed to a minimum tenure working for you after graduation
- Potential to staff openings in greater numbers than relying on the currently licensed local CNA candidate pool
- Participation in a subsidized training model that can bring transformative career advancement to high-potential local talent
- Potential for media visibility for your role in underwriting job training
Growth in Sourcing Qualified Candidates
Since opening our doors in 2017, Premier Nursing Academy has seen consistent growth in total grads year after year.
With the opening of our new campus in Florida this year and further expansion planned for the future, we are looking forward to seeing these graduation numbers continue to grow for years to come—helping employers in many locations staff their healthcare facilities with ready-to-work CNAs.
