ANA’s Nurse’s Career Center now links to jobs boards of over 175 top healthcare associations and professional organizations

Silver Spring, MD (PRWEB) August 12, 2009 -- The American Nurses Association (ANA), which represents the interests of the nation’s 2.9 million nurses, has re-launched its Nurse’s Career Center (www.nursescareercenter.org) as part of the National Healthcare Career Network (NHCN), the fastest-growing healthcare association job board network available.

By joining the NHCN, ANA’s Nurse’s Career Center now links to the jobs boards of more than 175 top healthcare associations and professional organizations.

Created to address the critical shortage of U.S. healthcare workers, the NHCN initiative makes it easier for recruiters to find qualified candidates to fill healthcare job openings across the nation. Associations participating in the NHCN network gain greater exposure for each job posting, and healthcare employers using NHCN are able to find talent faster -- selecting from the largest pool of candidates with certifications, extensive health care training and specialized knowledge available. The NHCN brings healthcare associations together to provide job placement and advancement opportunities; career development tools, training, scholarships and resources to mitigate worker shortage challenges facing the healthcare marketplace.

“ANA recognizes the importance of offering our members the latest career and educational resources that help them in their roles as registered nurses,” said ANA Chief Executive Officer Marla J. Weston, PhD, RN. “Through this alliance with NHCN, ANA has significantly strengthened the ANA Nurse’s Career Center and now offers our members a vast, extensive network of potential job opportunities, giving them a competitive edge in today’s workforce.”

NHCN’s 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). “ANA 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.

The NHCN’s technology is powered by Boxwood, the leading provider of online career centers to associations and professional trade organizations, and the organization is actively recruiting healthcare associations and professional trade organizations to participate.
