Transform nursing with strengths-based recruitment

By using a clearly defined profile of a ‘great ward sister’ in recruitment we can restore public faith in the nursing profession, says Katherine Fenton.

This article outlines the strengths-based recruitment research being carried out with the aim of improving talent acquisition and leadership development in nursing. Topics covered by this article include:
• How strengths-based recruitment is different to competency-based models
• The 13 strengths found in all ‘great ward sisters’
• Defining a ‘great ward sister’
• Strengths-based recruitment – a new way of recruiting
• The role of competencies in the strengths-based recruiting framework

“If we want to transform care then we have to make sure that we have the right people to do it”
