Did you know you can use LocumsMart to procure Advanced Practice Providers and Allied Health Practitioners?
The majority of LocumsMart Vendor Members supply coverage for Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants in addition to locum tenens Physicians. Some Vendors even specialize in providing advanced practice and allied health coverage.
In the first quarter of 2018, LocumsMart Members have already booked 27 assignments with Certified Nurse Midwives, Certified Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs), Nurse Practitioners (NPs), and Physician Assistants (PAs). PAs can be a very difficult search, but LocumsMart’s Vendor Members have a demonstrated ability to find PAs for not only your standard outpatient family practice setting but also very specialized inpatient settings. For example, most states have only two or three vein harvesting PAs available, but a LocumsMart Vendor Member was able to find the perfect PA to fill just such a need at a LocumsMart Member Facility just last month.
LocumsMart recommends that HCO Users always consider whether their need can be filled by an advanced practitioner, even if only as a stop-gap measure. Facilities that are willing to accept either a locum tenens Physician or Advanced Practice Provider may open simultaneous Assignment Requests on LocumsMart, allowing them to see who they can book first.
Many LocumsMart HCO Users are physician recruiters only, and they don’t deal with NPs or PAs in their department. LocumsMart encourages Facilities organized in this manner to share their locum tenens Physician recruitment efforts with their Chief Nursing Officer, or whoever may oversee advanced practice recruitment at their Facility, so that they may open a parallel search on LocumsMart.
