Dallas, TX – March 31, 2016 – Nurses Lounge, Inc, an online professional network for nurses (nurseslounge.com) and wholly-owned subsidiary of MedCAREERS Group, Inc. (“MCGI” or the “Company”) (PINK:MCGI), a development stage company, announced today that they are on course to meet their goal of having over 10,000 paid for nursing jobs, all from hospitals, posted on their network by the end of their second quarter ending July 31st.
Nurses Lounge reports that they now have over 2,500 jobs either posted or committed to being posted via their ‘early adopter’ program they rolled out early first quarter this year. If they are able to reach the 10,000 jobs mark by end of July, with all jobs being posted by hospitals, as opposed to travel or staffing agencies, they believe they will be the largest vertical site for these highly sought after jobs by nursing professionals on the internet today.
Per the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, with more than 3.1 million registered nurses nationwide, there are four times as many RNs in the United States as physicians, RNs comprise one of the largest segments of the U.S. workforce as a whole and are among the highest paying large occupations. Nurses comprise the largest single component of hospital staff, are the primary providers of hospital patient care, and deliver most of the nation's long-term care. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 1.2 million vacancies will emerge for registered nurses between 2014 and 2022.
"As the nursing shortage takes hold across the entire country, major nurse employers are in dire need of a more cost effective way to engage and recruit nurses.” said Tim Armes, president and CEO of MedCAREERS Group, Inc. “As such, with a short demo of our network, employers are able to quickly see how a dedicated networking platform for the nursing profession, that benefits both nurses and stakeholder organizations including schools and associations, allows them to engage with nurses on numerous levels. The bottom line being, as our network grows, employers will be able to recruit more nurses for less money and in less time.”
