Academic Article

Abstract

  • Applicant attraction theories stipulate that employment inducements be customized to meet the desires and specific characteristics of potential applicants. This study examined the relationship between nurses' level of work experience and perceived importance of organization and job attributes in attracting them to nursing home jobs. Importance ratings of recruitment factors varied significantly by nurses' level of work experience. Unique variation was attributed to education opportunities, potential for career advancement, compensation issues, benefits, and work flexibility.
