Still Deciding on Per Diem? Here’s a Few More Perks!

Posted May 6, 2019

I’m sure you’ve probably dreamed of working in a nursing position where you could create your own schedule, work the weekends and holidays you want (have I mentioned weekends and holidays are always paid at a higher rate as well?!), never be mandated, and be able to choose any shift you want. If you want all the benefits of working as an agency nurse, with the added flexibility to do it on your own terms, per diem nursing may be for you! Here are some of the awesome perks of being a PRN nurse.

You Get to Try New Facilities

Have you ever started a position at a facility and after a few shifts determined that this may not be what you signed up for? A per diem nurse chooses where they want to work! If you go to a facility and determine it’s not a fit for you, you don’t have to go back. With Nurses PRN you can set preferred facilities for yourself so that you get notified first of their openings. This way we can assure you are able to go where you want, when you want!

But, What if I Need Insurance?

Thinking this all sounds great but not ready to take the plunge because you need insurance/benefits? Well you’re in luck! Nurses PRN does offer insurance and benefits to per diem employees that maintain our full time status which is 30+ hours/week. We offer health, dental, and vision insurance as well as a great 401k plan as soon as you meet the qualifying criteria.

We’ve Got Your Back 24/7

Not always able to talk on the phone during business hours when we are in the office? Guess what, we are in the office 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! And if you just don’t prefer to call us after a long shift, we have email and text options available. Every nurse also has their own workforce portal where they can sign up for shifts, view any cancellations, access and upload their timesheets, see their paystubs, etc.

As a recruiter, my job is to be open and honest with you about all the good and the bad. We’ve discussed in the past the downfalls of working per diem, but the perks are pretty darn good! More questions? Give us a call, we’d love to answer any you may have and if we get the opportunity to brag a little about our awesome agency, I apologize in advance!

Cheers! 😉
