What is per diem nursing?

“Per diem” is Latin for “by the day,” so per diem nursing simply refers to nurses who are scheduled to work on a day-to-day basis. Per diem nurses typically aren’t full-time employees of one specific hospital, division, or care facility, so they’re able to fill shifts anywhere when needed. Many choose to go the per diem route because it provides greater flexibility and control over one’s schedule. It also allows nurses to work in different environments, which can keep the job exciting.

As with everything, there are pros and cons. Per diem doesn’t guarantee work hours, although the Erie area’s ongoing nursing shortage has made this less of an issue. Another common concern of working per diem is nurses going into shifts without proper training. Luckily, IntelyCare provides shift orientations directly in-app.

Does IntelyCare offer nurse training?

Yes, our in-app education training prepares IntelyPros to stay at the top of their field. Nurses and nursing assistants can easily complete required shift orientations, as well as their continuing education, all from the app.
