What is the difference between per-diem and contract nursing?
Per diem nursing gives you the ability to choose how many hours you work per week and a flexible schedule. The hours are not guaranteed so there is a possibility your shift gets canceled although that does not happen often. A contract is full time (36 or 40 hrs per week depending on the specialty) and the hours are guaranteed.
What kind of flexibility does per-diem nursing provide?
Flexibility defines what per-diem nursing is when you work for Stat Staff Professionals. You can be credentialled to work at more than one facility without making a major commitment. You choose your hours, shifts and make your own schedule. Once you build a rapport with the unit and staffing office, you can have direct contact to sign up for shifts and plan your schedule for the week or month ahead. If you are the type of person who likes to take it one day at a time, you can call to find out availability and pick up a shift the same day/night. Some nurses like per-diem work because of the work-life balance it offers, while others like it because it allows them to gain experience at various hospitals.
How many shifts am I obligated to work if I sign on as a per-diem RN with Stat Staff Professionals?
You are required to work 24 hours per month, which can be made up of 4, 8, or 12-hour shifts depending on your preference and facility needs.
