Which Job Is Easier to Recruit: OR Nurses, ER Nurses, or ICU Nurses?

Wanted Analytics (01/27/12) Abby Lombardi

Recruiters have been experiencing difficulty filling nursing jobs, due to the hiring demand growing faster than the related work force. There are different types of nurses with varying degrees of difficulty and demand. Emergency room (ER) nurse jobs are likely to be the easiest to fill across the nation. There are more than 250 health care employers currently recruiting for ER nurses. Operating room (OR) nurses, by comparison, are likely to be more difficult to recruit across the U.S, as there are currently more than 700 employers recruiting for OR nurses. Intensive care nurses fall somewhat in between OR and ER nurses, with about 400 companies currently advertising job openings for their services.
