Bupa fights nurses skill via CD-Rom

Bupa
hospitals have created an interactive recruitment CD-Rom to fight the nursing
skill shortages it is facing.

Janice
Clement, head of nursing at Bupa, said recruiting nurses is becoming
increasingly difficult and it is hoped the CD-Rom will make help Bupa look like
an attractive employer. The software allows nurses to see inside a Bupa
hospital.

The
disk includes an interview with head of training and development Ali Rowell,
and outlines Bupa’s commitments to staff. "Our commitment to personal
development is very real and I hope nurses will see this for themselves when
they view this CD-Rom and think seriously about a career with Bupa
hospitals," said Clement.

The
disk also includes an interview with a matron about her role, and allows users
to take a virtual tour of one of Bupa’s operating theatres.

Bupa
nurses care for a wide variety of patients including insured members, self-pay
patients, and NHS patients being treated under the Concordat agreement.
