Human Resource Management in Healthcare
Health-care organizations utilize an increasing number of types of health-care personnel, each with their own set of credentialing, licensure, and certification requirements. Nurses are the largest category, but advanced practice levels are developing for many categories of providers. Shortages are growing. Human resource management is critical and involves administrative and strategic elements.
