The need for a good Managed Services Provider (MSP) is only going to increase in the years to come.

This is apparent after U.S. News & World Report published its list of the Best Jobs of 2014 earlier this year. The report includes three different categories of nurses: nurse practitioners, registered nurses and licensed practical nurses. These jobs were selected because each is expected to add new positions in the coming years across all parts of the country – rural and urban. 

These are not expected to experience minor gains either. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts job openings for nurse practitioners to jump more than 30 percent by the year 2022, followed by LPNs (25 percent) and RNs (19 percent). This translates to hundreds of thousands of additional jobs in the coming years, due to the increasing demand for healthcare across the country.

With this growth, the need to strategically manage staffing will obviously become even greater in the next few years. For healthcare organizations that are already stretched thin, it is time to consider assistance from an MSP such as Cross Country Staffing (CCS) in order to meet this challenge.

CCS has more than a decade of MSP experience at over 660 facilities nationwide, and it delivers efficient and effective staffing plans that allow clients to take charge of the personnel process rather than react to unexpected shortages and unforeseen circumstances.

From Interview Services (IVS) that use proven hiring techniques to find the right people for the job more quickly, to developing Internal Resource Pools (IRP) that can be called upon to provide reliable, experienced staff during times of peak demand; an MSP will provide staffing solutions to meet the coming demand.
