NOTE 1: For concreteness, the list of available components (with pricing) that follows utilizes nursing in higher
education as the chosen academic discipline. This is, by no means, intended to suggest that only nursing search
engagements are possible. Virtually any other academic discipline will be considered, although certain component descriptions
and pricing would vary according to that choice.
NOTE 2: Actual pricing for an engagement under The Hollander Group Component SearchTM Model depends upon the
components selected by the client and to a lesser extent the academic discipline as just noted.
