Creating compelling job descriptions for your agency takes time, especially since many of your positions require certain character traits as well as education and experience. If you’re looking to hire a registered nurse for your healthcare agency, here’s what you should include in the job description to attract the industry’s best talent.
What is a Registered Nurse?
A registered nurse (RN) is a nurse who has graduated from a nursing program and is licensed to practice nursing in their state. RNs can be employed in a variety of settings and typically work in patient-facing roles.
RNs can be hourly or salaried, depending on your state and agency. Registered nurses paid hourly should receive overtime pay, but there are certain exceptions apply. Check your state official requirements for non-exempt and exempt employees to make sure you’re following protocol.
What should be included in an RN job description?
Your RN job description should include sufficient detail about the day-to-day of the role, any major responsibilities and essential functions, and requirements that are necessary to perform the job. Some nice-to-haves could include benefits offered at your agency, pay expectations, and some background information about your agency, including your core values and mission. This
