Talent management has attracted increasing attention from academics and practitioners in recent years, but there are a number of gaps for further theoretical and empirical development. The present paper aims to contribute to the literature on talent management in nursing by developing a clear and concise definition of talent management and offering an in depth review of the talent concept. Furthermore, we distinguish two main approaches of talent management: exclusive and inclusive talent management. Then, this paper examines the different characteristics of indicators of talent management in health care system particularly in recruiting nurses. The analysis of the findings of studies conducted to date indicates that leading indicators for nurses have not developed. Therefore, managers of health centers need to specify route of nurses’ career and future positions from the beginning to get optimal individual and organizational output.

Since the health of mind and body is considered as one of the important criteria in the development of regions and countries, therefore, the access to the services as well as its optimal distribution in the regions of the country is of prime importance. In the issue of the equitable access to healthcare services, the first point raised is the access to services. This study aimed to assess the cities of Alborz province in having the healthcare infrastructure. Thus, after extracting indicators for healthcare infrastructure, TOPSIS, MORIS models, and coefficient of the importance were calculated for each of the infrastructures. Finally, by using AHP technique, the cities were ranked in terms of access to healthcare infrastructure. The results obtained for the model indicated that there was a large difference between the province and its cities in terms of access to MORIS and TOPSIS of healthcare infrastructure. In both models, Karaj made the highest and Taleghan city made the least benefit of health infrastructure. Using Spearman rank-order correlation, the correlation between cities population rank and the rank of having healthcare infrastructure was assessed. The results revealed very poor correlation between these two categories and the distribution of healthcare infrastructure had not been done on the basis of population.
