It may still be winter, but it isn’t too early to start thinking about your summer staffing needs. Now is the time to plan for the supplemental staff your organization may need to cover for vacations. The demand for healthcare workers is currently high and staffing agencies typically look for a window of 2-3 weeks to fill supplemental travel staff.
WSHA members have access to a free registry program that provides one-stop access to qualified nurses and allied health professionals available to fill temporary and per-diem positions from a network of vetted agencies. More than 25 hospitals across WSHA’s membership already participate in the Washington State Registry program.
