Where to Find Good Candidates
Attractive Job Descriptions
- Why would someone want to work here?
- What kind of atmosphere would they be coming into?
- What kind of people would they interact with?
Speaking of copywriting...
Culture Fit is a Must
- What gets them excited within their work? What types of tasks do they enjoy and look forward to doing?
- What does their ideal day look like? What types of patients do they enjoy working with? What types of results do they enjoy providing for patients?
- Are they “plugged in” to industry news? Do they know what’s happening in healthcare on a broader scale?
- What does work/life balance mean to them? What else is important in their life? How do they take care of themselves or what do they do to unwind?
- What’s most important to them in a job? (Money? Flexibility? Being treated well? Etc.)
- Do their job needs align with your job needs?
- What expectations do they have? What do they want in the future? What are their goals?
Money conversations should always be in person, not over email.
And one last step before hiring anyone...
FNP-C President & Co-Founder
Veronica co-founded Med2You, a healthcare company based in Austin, Texas that provides primary and psychiatric care to underserved populations with a completely remote care team led by nurse practitioners.
Veronica started her business as a single provider with a mobile “doctor bag,” cellphone and a laptop.
As a family nurse practitioner and entrepreneur who has operated her own practice since 2013, Veronica knows the unique challenges and needs APNs have when navigating the business, legal and regulatory components of starting and operating a thriving healthcare practice.
Now, her mission is to put this knowledge in the hands of other advanced practice nurses so that they can realize their full potential as clinicians, entrepreneurs and leaders in their community.
With her business partner, Griffin Mulcahey, a healthcare regulatory attorney, Veronica has designed the educational programs, resources, and community support network that is the American Academy of Nurse Entrepreneurs (AANE).
Veronica is also a sought-after speaker around the country. She speaks to healthcare entrepreneurs, clinicians, hospitals, and associations – proudly educating and helping the growing community of healthcare entrepreneurs who are giving more options and better care to communities around the country.
