Candidate Direct automates & streamlines basic applications with web-based software. Solutions that strike a balance between cost containment and quality healthcare

A recent study by the American Nurses Association links improved patient care and safety with adequate nurse staffing levels when measured on a shift-by-shift, unit-by-unit basis. Though sourcing qualified nurse staff at a good price isn’t always easy, Candidate Direct hospital vendor management lets staffing managers recruit and process RNs fast, increasing fill rates and safeguarding patients.

We source registered nurse specialists from everywhere

Has your facility been searching for an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, a PEDs or NICU nurse? Our health system clients report ongoing success with sourcing hard-to-find nurses.  RNs in our staffing marketplace are licensed, credentialed, experienced and ready to start work on a moment’s notice at your facility. We provide nurse staff to hospitals, rehab clinics, outpatient centers, ambulatory surgery centers, and home health settings.

We drive healthcare staffing costs down

The Candidate Direct Marketplace includes an optional bill rate feature that allows healthcare staffing agencies to submit below-market rates for candidates as a means of boosting agency placements. This drives staffing costs down for healthcare employers and results in significant yearly savings. Moreover, agency discounts often accompany volume staffing buys.
