Typically contracts last 8-13 weeks but can be flexible depending on the needs of the facility. Our contracts have guaranteed hours for our Caregivers.
If a contract is a bit too structured-we also offer per diem opportunities at many facilities. This allows a caregiver to pick and choose when they want to work based on the needs of a facility. There are no guaranteed hours associated with per diem opportunities.
For all employees, pay is weekly, every Friday, via direct deposit (unless a check is requested).
Typically, all positions/contracts are temporary. However, some facilities do have temp-to-perm contracts available.
All contracts have guaranteed hours, usually 36 or 40 hours per week.
Benefits are provided to full-time employees who work 30+ hours a week.

Each state has different requirements for nursing licenses. To learn more about how each state works, visit: https://www.nursinglicensure.org/articles/rn-licensing.html
Walk-through states allow a nurse to be issued a temporary license within one hour to one day's time.
This temporary license is used to practice nursing while awaiting permanent licensure to be processed.
These temporary licenses obtained in walk-through states are usually valid for 30 days to six months depending on the state issuing the license.
Stat Staff Professionals would never want to separate you from your family and/or pets.
Just make sure that when you're planning to travel, that you look for "pet-friendly" lodging.
