We are also looking forward to working with our colleagues at the American Hospital Association and other healthcare associations to cooperatively address the shortage in qualified workers.
Washington DC (PRWEB) July 9, 2009
The American College of Cardiology (ACC), a 37,000-member non-profit medical society based in Washington, D.C., today announced its online job board – ACC Cardiology Careers – has joined the National Healthcare Career Network (NHCN). The NHCN is an initiative that brings together healthcare associations, to provide job placement and advancement opportunities; career development tools, training, scholarships and resources to mitigate workforce shortage challenges facing the healthcare marketplace.
The new ACC site launched on July 1, and now employers wishing to reach ACC’s substantial audience of qualified cardiovascular professionals need to post their jobs directly with the new ACC Cardiology Careers site (http://cardiologycareers.acc.org).
“We are extremely excited about the new opportunities ACC Cardiology Careers will be able to deliver for our members, other industry professionals, and employers,” said Dr. Jack Lewin, ACC CEO. “We are also looking forward to working with our colleagues at the American Hospital Association and other healthcare associations to cooperatively address the shortage in qualified workers.”
NHCN founding partner, the American Hospital Association (AHA), has taken a leadership role in rallying healthcare associations around this cause. “In spite of the economic downturn, healthcare employers are still struggling to find great candidates,” said Anthony Burke, president and CEO of AHA Solutions (an American Hospital Association company). “ACC is a great addition to the network, and we invite all health care associations – large and small, national and regional – to join us as we band together to tackle the workforce challenges,” continued Burke.
Associations participating in the NHCN gain greater exposure for each job posting. Not only will postings appear on the originating association’s job board, they will also be shared with every relevant network participant. Healthcare employers will be able to use the NHCN to find talent faster—selecting from the largest pool of candidates with certifications, extensive health care training and specialized knowledge available. The NHCN’s technology is powered by Boxwood, the leading provider of online career centers to associations and professional trade organizations.
More than 170 top healthcare associations and professional organizations have joined the NHCN devoting resources to help healthcare resolve its crisis.
Despite billions spent on commercial job boards, today’s critical healthcare positions remain vacant. The NHCN promotes healthcare associations’ niche (specialized) job boards and online career centers as viable alternatives for finding and developing industry-specific talent.
The NHCN is actively recruiting healthcare associations and professional trade organizations to participate. For more information, visit http://www.nationalhealthcarecareernetwork.com.
