We all need a per diem or two in our back pocket. Why?
For many reasons.. Job stability is really an illusion, because you get to stay if your boss wants you to stay. You can be let go or fired whenever.
What per diem allows you to do is take control of your employment : better pay, flexible scheduling, no mandatory overtime, no job politics ( when you work for an agency), no staff meetings and no long term commitments.
With the flexibility and free time, you can really indulge in the things that fulfill you as a person.
You have to live your life dear… that job can replace you any minute.
What are some per diem agencies you could start with?
The best bet is to google, so you can compare, see what is in your local area.
The ones I am aware of are : Favorite healthcare staffing, CareRev, Shiftmed, Shiftkey, Aya healthcare( shifts.com),MAS medical staffing, gifted healthcare, Top of the line healthcare staffing ( Nc only), and ConnectRN
I hope and pray you can find the one that best suits you so you can live your best balanced life. A life with less stress and no burnout, so you can have more freedom for the things or people that matter most…
