IntelyCare’s #WinItWednesday

win it wednesdayCan I get a drum-roll please?  No need to dream of winning the lottery – IntelyCare is giving away a $500 Visa gift card to one lucky IntelyPro during each week in December, and a grand prize of an $1,000 Visa gift card.

How does it work?

Beginning on December 4, all IntelyPros must work 1 shift per week and have perfect attendance. If both requirements are met, your name will be entered to win a $500 Visa gift card. The promotion will occur each week in December, and reset after a winner was announced. Each additional shift worked past the 1 shift minimum will allow for additional entries: 5 shifts = 5 entries.

Did someone say a grand prize?

Sure did. If you pick up a minimum of 1 shift every week and have perfect attendance throughout December, you will be entered to win a $1,000 Visa gift card. Heighten your chances to win the grand prize by picking up multiple shifts per week, and receiving multiple entries.

Is it possible to win this promotion and the Nutcracker promotion?

Absolutely. Pick up as many shifts as you desire, and you may be walking away with a $500-$1,000 gift card, and tickets to see Boston Ballet’s performance of The Nutcracker or a special, holiday gift basket. Learn more here.

The week of December 4 to 11: December 13 The week of December 11 to 18: December 20 The week of December 18 to 25: December 27 The grand prize winner will be announced on January 3
How to be a role model for your fellow nurses

How to be a role model for your fellow nurses

Being a nurse means you have a great deal of responsibility to shoulder on any given day. You strive to make a difference in the lives of the patients under your care, and you are constantly setting the bar higher for yourself in terms of the quality and efficiency of your work.

Per-diem nurses are a cut above

As a per-diem nurse, it is a given that you are simply the best at what you do. To be able to walk into a new hospital or clinic without any training and jump right into the job at hand, this is your superpower. You have the ability to assess a situation and solve problems quickly. You communicate with ease, no matter who you are speaking to. Your attention to detail and your tech savvy is first-rate. You are the nurse every other nurse wants to be!

As a per-diem nurse representing the IntelyCare brand, it is even more essential to be a role model for your peers. Your core competencies are still rooted in compassion, ethics, confidence, and critical thinking, but as a temporary nurse, you must also be able to listen well, adapt, learn quickly, be accountable, and be able to jump into a team effort without hesitation.

It is this kind of work ethic that makes you a great role model.

How would you describe a role model?

A role model, by its very definition, is someone to look up to, someone who has something that you aspire to have for yourself. You may think that just because you are working at a facility for one day that there is little opportunity to make such an impact – but you are wrong!

The smallest gestures, the little things that you can share that may make somebody’s job easier, this is how you will be remembered and how your input will linger well after your shift is done.

Big things matter – but little things matter too

Sometimes, the simple act of listening is a profound gift. Being able to share your experiences on how to cope with stress or how to deal with a disagreeable situation can make all the difference.

Some of the most memorable experiences we have are not about the grand gestures, they are about the small moments that have great meaning. Being willing to make that connection, to help without being asked, to jump in without hesitation even when the job is difficult, to be honest in the face of adversity, to be insightful enough to see past the most obvious issues – these are the ways in which we can make a positive, lasting impression, and become role models for nurses and CNAs everywhere.

Putting others first

Wanting others to be their best is the hallmark of a great role model. Though you may only be in the facility for a day or two, you may think that you can’t be a catalyst for change (and perhaps there is nothing that needs to be changed) but being a shining example to others of how an IntelyCare nurse handles him or herself is something that is firmly within your grasp.
