Abstract : In an era of diminishing resources, hospitals are finding that their most precious resource, nurses, are diminishing in number at an ever increasing rate. Nurses are becoming more and more aware of the value of their services, and are willing to seek out the highest bidder. During 1981 Madigan Army Medical Center began experiencing a nursing shortage, and difficulty in the recruitment of civilian RNs. This study attempts to determine the optimal feasible system for the recruiting and retention of such nurses. Its major finding, generated from a market analysis of civilian RN recruitment, revealed that the focus of recruitment planning should shift away from the Fort Lewis Civilian Personnel Office, and toward Madigan's Department of Nursing. Keywords: personnel management; recruiting.
