Seattle start-up adds nurse salary portal based on nearly 10 billion nursing home wage hours to help solve the critical caregiver shortage facing elder care providers in the U.S.
Seattle, WA /PRNewswire/ - CareListings, the nation's most comprehensive resource for families exploring long-term care providers online, and for caregivers to find employment opportunities with elder care providers, has launched a new portal which provides detailed salary information for nurses across the United States.
The salary information is based upon approximately 10 billion hours of employment data systematically assembled from over 85,000 nursing home cost report submissions to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid for fiscal years ending in 2013-2018. It builds upon the capabilities of the platform to connect families and caregivers to over 140,000 senior care providers in the United States.
"We were surprised by the lack of objective wage information available to hiring managers and caregivers as we were helping thousands of Certified Nursing Assistants find employment opportunities over the past year. With the critical caregiver shortage just beginning in the U.S., we have made our information available to anyone for free to provide a further layer of transparency in caregiver salaries," says the founder and CEO of CareListings, Carl Rogers.
CareListings now contains salary information for Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), and Registered Nurses (RN) across all US states and major cities from 2013 to 2018 based on 9,792,479,252 hours of wage data reported by Medicare and Medicaid certified nursing homes. With a single click, anyone can see the average level of salaries being paid to caregivers and compare city-level data to state-level data.
CareListings is the nation's most comprehensive resource for families and healthcare professionals exploring senior care options online, with direct contact information for over 140,000 long-term care providers for free – including assisted living homes, home care & home health agencies, skilled nursing facilities, dialysis facilities, and other types of senior care providers.
Caregivers exploring employment opportunities can create a centralized profile on the platform and notify providers of their interest in available positions. Providers receive instant applicant notifications, can review caregiver listings, and begin their employment process by messaging candidates.
Senior care providers have the ability to claim their CareListing at no cost to update their business information, post job listings, and browse nearby caregiver job seekers. CareListings' Premium Listings are subscription-based and allow providers to reach even more families and caregivers directly.
CareListings is based in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, and serves healthcare consumers across the United States. Learn more at carelistings.com.
