Fewer students are enrolling in nursing studies. A consequence of the lengthening of nursing studies? According to ARES first-year enrollment dropped by 20% between 2018 and 2019 and enrollment continues to decline with the COVID crisis.
In addition, 20% of nurses in Belgium want to leave their profession as a result of the pandemic, according to a study by Sciensano. This figure rises to 2.5 million nurses worldwide according to the WHO.
Why is it so difficult to recruit nurses?
The lack of attractiveness, recognition, conditions and workload complete the negative image of the nursing profession.
In addition, the salary of workers is not commensurate with their commitment and skills, especially since despite an additional year of study, new nurses are still considered to have a bachelor’s degree.
Traditional recruitment campaigns, often expensive, no longer attract young graduates and keeping hold of the right people after their internship is not always easy.
To help you, Interneo contains a tool to facilitate and lighten the recruitment process, directly included in our internship management solution.
Indeed, you have a potential recruitment pool made up of all the students who have completed an internship in your institution.
