StaffDNA has released its Candidate Blueprint Index (CBI) results for the first quarter of the year, which provides real-time data of clinician’s employment preferences nationwide. Data is obtained from a sample of nursing and allied health professionals who registered with StaffDNA during the months of January to March 2017.
The largest percentage (35%) of clinicians requested permanent positions, which indicates people are searching for more stable, long-term work. Contract work continued to make up a large percentage of our results, but with local contract requests coming in at 30% and travel requests at 28%, it’s important to note that healthcare candidates are wanting to stay closer to home. A significantly less percentage of job seekers (15.56%) requested per diem jobs.
Florida topped our list as the most popular state for both permanent and travel jobs, with a majority of southern states rounding out the top five. StaffDNA candidates can select multiple employment preferences, including state and job type.
The Top 5 states for permanent employment were:
Florida (12 %) – Texas (9%) – California (8%) – New York (7%) – Georgia (5 %)
The Top 5 states for contract employment were:
Florida (13 %) – Texas (10%) – California (9%) – Georgia (7%) – North Carolina (6%)
