Conshohocken, PA (PRWEB) October 1, 2007
MedX, a leader in enterprise workforce acquisition and international hiring, announced today the creation of career-oriented resources for nurses and nurse managers in an online community at http://medxcorp.com/nurses . Creating online resources for nurses and nurse managers will help nurses get control of their careers and help nurse managers become retention experts.
These resources online will help individual nurses assess and manage their priorities in career and work/life. Additional materials are available to nurse managers interested in improving managerial skills and becoming masters of motivation and retention. Surveys will ask nurses about priorities for environment, benefits, working conditions, autonomy and other issues. Results will be visible immediately to survey participants and survey questions will vary over time. Visitors will also have an opportunity to suggest content or resources and participate in blogs and community chat.
"We're creating a destination for nurses, where they can meet safely online and discuss current issues and share ideas about work with other nurses," says Jennifer Santoleri, vice president of MedX. "The goal of the site is to help nurses engage with work by providing them with real, actionable solutions that give them control of their careers. We believe this is critical to keeping nurses in nursing."
The blog will cover current issues for nurses in all employment settings, from private practices, large healthcare systems to managed care companies. Discussions by community members will help drive future resources. In addition to materials and handbooks providing simple, effective management advice that nurse managers can put to use in a variety of settings, there will be career coaching and tools for individuals who want to advance where they are or those who want to take a look at the job market.
"We're not inventing anything new. This kind of information is out there, " says Barbara Evans, vice president of marketing. "But we feel it is scattered and not necessarily focused on the nursing career context. We want to help deliver some of the best thinking in hiring, management, work/life balance and retention to our nursing audience."
