Where can I find registered nurse jobs near me?

We have made it simple – look for per diem jobs near you on our Job Board by selecting “per diem” or “local contract” in the “job type” dropdown.

What happens when I mark myself as "Available"?

When our team sees you have marked a shift as available, they will give you a call at confirmation time if you are needed for the shift. Be prepared for the call and ready to work the shift.

If you are not 100% certain of availability for a shift, do not mark yourself as available.

What do I need with me for each shift?

Be sure to bring your RN license, credentials, and a photo ID. The staffing office may need to make their own copies on your first shift.

Where do I go for my shift?

When picking up shifts at different facilities, always head to the Nurse Staffing Office to sign in with the supervisor to receive your assignment.
