Per Diem

How many shifts will I receive per week?

If you are flexible Day/Eve/Night/Weekend shifts and are flexible to commute within reason you will receive an abundance of shifts.

Are my shifts guaranteed?

No, per diem is not guaranteed. It allows flexibility to both the facility and staff if needed. Integrated has a very strong relationship with all facilities we are sending our staff and typically our scheduled shifts stick. In the event that a shift is cancelled we can easily re-route you to another shift.

What is the minimum number of hours I have to work for Per Diem?

There is no minimum!

How often should I give my availability?

All employees should be giving availability every Monday morning for the following 2 weeks.

How do I find out about shifts?

Keep your availability updated with our office! From there our staffing software will match you up with the shifts you are looking for. Employees with matching availability will get calls first.

Do I get a timecard signed for each shift?

Yes, please have an individual timecard filled out for each shift. This is because there is only one signature line per timecard, so there is no room for multiple supervisors to sign.

Travel

How much do you know about the job(s) ie: expectations, requirements, modules, location, environment, culture etc.?

We are well informed and will share with you every detail we have about the contracts and facilities. If there is something that you want to know that we do not have an immediate answer to, our contract managers can find out for you very quickly!

What are some travel nursing assignment requirements?

This depends on the unit, skills specialty and facility you are looking to work in!
The clients and hospitals we work with all have different requirements and preferences, however, the majority of them request a minimum 1 year of RN experience for the unity you would like to work in. For some specialties like PACU, Cath Lab, ER or other higher acuity specialties, the minimum amount of experience can be as high as 2 to 5 years.

Your Integrated Travel Representative and Travel Coordinators will work along with you to create a profile which highlights your skills and experience within your scope of work for a
successful placement.

We have contracts available for you nationwide! Our Travel Representatives can go over all of your options.
