How to Recruit CRNAs in a Tight Market?

Every client wants to know – “How are you able to find candidates in THIS market??” As you know, posted ads on your website and job boards largely get ignored. 

The key to landing any tough role is persistence, outreach and a great network.

Accio has built an extensive network of passive candidate CRNAs throughout the country, interested in challenging and fulfilling roles. We find out who is tired of the locums shuffle and wants to switch to a permanent role, or uncover those who are ready to move to a new team or region.

Success takes targeted, creative outreach and phone time, and it doesn’t hurt to bring nearly 20 years of recruiting experience.

The Overwhelming Costs of a CRNA Shortfall

Every week that you are covering a CRNA staffing shortfall, your organization is not only losing patient revenue but potentially so much more.

A prolonged vacancy can decrease your quality of care (and ding HCAHPS scores) and reduce community access to care. Not to be forgotten is the likely psychic impact on your valuable existing staff.

All of these staff costs are incurred while also bearing the bottom line costs of overtime rates, locums and per diem contract fees.

Increase your CRNA Hiring Efficiency

Accio helps leading anesthesia groups (either CRNA or physician led), hospital care systems and independent practices to find experienced nurse anesthesia providers. We typically reduce your hiring window by at least 50% and make a great extension of your existing talent acquisition team.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who pays the recruiter?

Nurse Anesthetists should never pay a fee to a recruiter or CRNA agency, ever. The hiring organization is responsible for any costs associated with a recruiting firm.

What is the cost to hire a CRNA Recruiter?

There is no charge to begin a search with us. If there is a successful placement made, there is a placement reward provided by the employer, based on the first year base compensation. For certain types of searches, we may charge an engagement fee to begin a search assignment.  We do prefer exclusive arrangements.

These costs are typically equivalent to all of the internal talent acquisition costs associated with a tough search, but you only pay for a successful outcome. Also the price of our service is hardly a fraction of the cost of any unfulfilled anesthesia role on your team.

Why hire Dedicated CRNAs over Locums?

When you do the numbers and can no longer hide locums, per-diem and overtime costs in another organizational bucket, we can help you find an incredible permanent Nurse Anesthetist to join your team on staff.

While traveling has become more popular, there are many amazing CRNAs looking to “settle down” with a local facility, group or practice. Also, if you are currently looking for staff CRNA jobs, contact us to help place you at an ideal local organization to call your new home.

Do you post to Gaswork, Indeed, LinkedIn, etc..?

No, typically not. Clients engage us to access our network of certified registered nurse anesthetists and we reach out to them directly about their openings. In some cases, we will take a CRNA headhunter approach and market top candidates to target organizations, as well.

In rare cases, we are asked to also manage the job board posts for a client. In our experience, networking with passive CRNA candidates works better than job boards.

Are CRNA placements guaranteed?

We offer a standard 90 day guarantee, from the start date, for all of our placements. Our goal is to find the best fit for your team.
