We are very pleased that NurseTesting.com has partnered with us. Carefully screening caregivers is critical in placing quality contract staff.
High Point, NC (PRWEB) August 23, 2007
As healthcare facilities strive to control labor costs with the use of staffing vendors, there is also a challenge to control the quality of the candidates being chosen to work at these facilities. Georgetown University Hospital has taken a step towards assuring the quality of care delivered by outsourced labor. Georgetown has chosen NurseTesting.com as its competency testing partner for candidate screening of all healthcare staffing vendors.
Under this new partnership, all current healthcare staffing vendors providing Georgetown University Hospital with contract nurses will be asked to screen their candidates with NurseTesting.com's nationally validated exams. Screening candidates gives Georgetown University Hospital a more accurate assessment of a candidate's skill level, leading to better placement of each nurse.
Molly Billingsley, RN, MSN, EdD, Assistant Vice President of operations support at Georgetown University Hospital states "We are very pleased that NurseTesting.com has partnered with us. Carefully screening caregivers is critical in placing quality contract staff.”
Georgetown University Hospital is one of the few Magnet hospitals NurseTesting.com, a Division of Amistaff Healthcare Technology, Inc, is considering partnering with for the next phase of its revolutionary exam validation process.
