Do you have a nursing shortage? Are your clients and patients not fully satisfied with their care? You may want to rethink how you are recruiting nurses. Healthcare providers often hire their own nursing professionals based on the same recruiting methods used in the rest of their organisations.
This means they may end up with a team of unqualified or inexperienced nurses who do not always have the core skills and requirements to deliver in this type of environment.
Many issues stem from hiring unqualified staff, so healthcare-based organisations need a nursing recruitment partner that uses a systematic, objective and comprehensive hiring progression. Greys Nursing Services uses an in-depth recruiting process that brings unique advantages to both the healthcare provider and the hired nurse.
This article explores the benefits of healthcare providers who leverage a flexible and permanent nursing services partner that uses an expert recruiting process.

The recruiting process
Expert recruitment is a hallmark of Greys Recruitment and the MASA Group of companies. As a leading nursing services provider, we only work with highly qualified professionals that go through a rigorous vetting, hiring and training process geared to deliver the utmost value to your organisation, clients and patients.
Greys Nursing Services uses a detailed nursing recruitment process that makes it easy to find, hire and onboard nursing staff. We go beyond industry best practices to set a higher standard of recruitment, which encompasses the following procedures:
Face-to-face interview and reference check
After tapping into our pool of candidates and sourcing prospective hires, each nurse will undergo an in-person interview. A face-to-face interview allows us to assess a candidates personality, communication skills and whether they will fit your organisational culture.
The reference check goes the extra mile to verify a candidates experience and the various roles, tasks and overall performance exhibited with their previous employment.
Criminal and ITC checks
We can run a criminal check on every nursing candidate upon the client’s request to ensure that they have no criminal record.
Verifying applicant registration documents with SANC
Verifying our candidates’ documentation is an essential part of the process. We check all the relevant registration documents with the South African Nursing Council (SANC) for registered nurses, enrolled nurses and emergency nurses.
We can conduct medical tests for each nurse at the request of our clients and concerning the job at hand. This step is a sensitive but crucial requirement for certain health care facilities that we conduct with our nurses’ privacy and the client’s specifications in mind.
Induction to company policies
As part of the training process, we also focus on inducting nursing staff into a clients’ company policies. This step ensures that nursing staff are aware of your expectations and company protocols.
On-site nursing orientation
We can also provide one day of on-site nursing orientation to accommodate nursing staff in their new nursing environment. As part of this process, we record feedback from you as the client to improve and offer better nursing services through our staff.
Mobilisation of nursing staff
Once the initial recruitment process is complete and we have adequately vetted, hired, trained and onboarded our nursing staff, we will go ahead and mobilise them to the nursing site within the agreed-upon date.
We assign candidates on a contractual or ad-hoc basis per your staffing requirements and manage our nurses’ performance throughout the contract period. Essentially, you benefit from the utmost flexibility, allowing you to structure the contract based on your organisation or facilities’ needs.
