Abstract

The problems that home health managers experience in hiring speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are not surprising. The surveys of the profession show that insufficient numbers of SLPs exist in the workforce to fill all the available positions. In competing with schools and other healthcare settings, home health recruiters also must overcome SLPs' lack of exposure to home health during their formative student experiences. This article provides some tips about where to find SLPs and how to excite them about home healthcare-and once having hired them, how to keep them.
