Improvements on a current online advert
The online advertisement on their website is more career-oriented as opposed to being all-rounded and comprehensive regarding what it has to offer to the nurse applying for the job. Most of the focus is on what the nurse is being hired to do and what is expected of them. I would improve on it by offering the eye-catching information about the facility and give the applicant the urge to want to work with the facility without necessarily focusing on the responsibilities and tasks (Stevens & Szmerekovsky, 2010). Nursing, as much as it demanding and noble, should also be enjoyable and fun such that it enables the nurse to enjoy and truly dedicate and commit themselves to their career.
Other incentives such as an attractive package and advances in career should be included in the advertisement (Stevens & Szmerekovsky, 2010). This gives motivation to the nurse. Other opportunities such as awards and offering tuition reimbursement as included in my advertisement are also a great motivation for the nurse applicant that generally improves performance in the workplace. Nurses that do not meet all the requirements should not be left out but should be vetted according to their experience as this plays a major role in applying skills and providing health care as required by the hospital’s guidelines and the responsible accredited institutions.
Besides the newspaper, I would also employ the use of the hospital’s website and create social platforms to get the advertisement across. Such platforms include radio stations, social media, and the use of referrals through verbal and written platforms. This way, word gets around faster and better especially for applicants who are not able to access newspapers for any reason whatsoever (Hassan, Ahmad Nadzim & Shiratuddin, 2015)
