Randstad Healthcare's high standards of quality allow us to provide clients with only the most qualified and trained healthcare professionals. We do this by adhering to one of the market’s most rigorous credentialing processes. Before a healthcare professional arrives at your facility they are required to complete a comprehensive orientation and onboarding process that includes training, background checks, and education and employment verification.
Randstad Healthcare's hiring standards include a minimum requirement of one year of recent experience in an acute care setting for all nurses, advanced practice, and allied health professionals, however, over 85 percent of our candidates have an average of 4-6 years of experience, or more. A large part of our screening process is focused on ensuring that the candidate is not only clinically sound, but that they also possess the flexibility to go into a new hospital environment with minimal orientation and adapt quickly to the policies and procedures around them. The right candidate must possess expertise in their area of specialty, as well as be the right cultural fit for our client. This is assessed through interviewing and extensive referencing. Competency is evaluated through a thorough skill set checklist, a complete review of prior work experience – including type and size of the healthcare facility – clinical evaluations, and specific skills assessment testing for nurses and allied health providers. Our referencing process seeks feedback on both clinical competency as well as behavioral and professional skill sets. Finally, our credentialing specialists will ensure the candidate has a recent criminal background check in place, an active and clear professional license, specialty certifications, annual training requirements, medical screening and immunizations, as well as any other pre-employment health screening or other documentation your facility requires.
