Geofencing – Recruitment – Nurses

Geofencing – Recruitment – Nurses

NPR recently reported that John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida was turning to geofencing as a tool to recruit nurses. They’re targeting nurses at rival hospitals (geo-conquesting) and their homes (geotargeting). After years of trying traditional outlets (newspaper, radio, and recruitment firms) John Hopkins decided to go another route.

Guess what.  

“We have invaded their (Nurses) space in which they live and work, so it’s a much better use of our dollars,” the hospital administrator was quoted. “We’re not just throwing out a wide net and seeing who comes through the pipeline.”

Compared to traditional advertising John Hopkins found their recruiting cost has dropped significantly and were seeing three or four calls a week instead of no calls.
