Start the New Year with a New Way to Search for Travel Nursing Jobs
Elite Specialty Staffing has set out on a mission to revolutionize the way that nurses search and apply for jobs online. Imagine, an app that allows nurses to perform every single step of the process to submit their application for per diem nursing shifts or travel nursing jobs from the palm of their hand.
Buckle up and get ready for Nursa™. Searching for a new travel nursing job? Ready to apply for the 13-week contract of your dreams? Want to pick up local per diem nursing shifts for tomorrow? No matter which phase of the travel nursing acquisition process you are currently in, Nursa™ has been developed to serve you better.
Search the Highest Paying Travel Nursing Jobs from the Palm of Your Hand
As a travel nurse, you already know how frustrating job searching can be. It’s so time-consuming to go through several different travel nursing agencies websites and job search portals only to find confusing overlaps with the same positions posted at different sites with different rates of pay and benefits packages.
How much easier would life be if you could go to one place and search tens of thousands of travel nursing and per diem jobs? What if you knew that the rates you are shown are the highest ones possible for that particular assignment? Soon, you can. There’s an app for that. It’s called Nursa™.
Smarter. Faster. Better. Change the Way You Find Travel Nursing Jobs Online
It’s easy to find the travel nursing jobs you want within the Nursa™ app. Intuitive and fast, you can breeze right through the different screens and search functions available in the application.
Every travel nurse is different. Unique. At Elite Specialty Staffing, we understand this and make it a point to take the time to learn more about our nurses’ specialties, strengths, and weaknesses in order to place them on the assignments they are best suited for. Keeping with this same spirit of respecting our nurses’ individuality, we developed the Nursa™ app in a way that nurses can search for their preferred jobs by:
- Pay rate
The ability to narrow down search results means that nurses won’t be wasting time that they don’t have on scouring through thousands of listings just to get to the ones they are genuinely interested in.
Applying for Jobs in the Nursa™ App
What happens when you find a nursing job that you want? Click a button to submit your application and you’re done. That is, of course, if you have all the necessary nursing documentation already loaded into the Nursa™ app that is required by the job.
If the nursing manager at the facility who posted the job wants you to work it, they will accept your request. That’s it. No calling around to recruiters or putting a middle man in between you and the hospital or healthcare facility. In fact, if you want to communicate about a position that you found on the app, you can use our handy built-in chat feature that facilitates instant messaging between the nurse and the employer. Nursa™ puts travel nurses directly in touch with employers, which helps to establish trust and makes the travel nursing experience more personalized and rewarding.
Uploading Nursing Documentation in Nursa™
During the development phase of this application, we wanted to get into the minds of real travel nurses and solve their biggest pain points and frustrations when it comes to searching for new long-term and short-term nursing contracts. Through this discovery phase, we realized that the majority of nurses we talked to identified the completion and submission of paperwork to be the most complicated and difficult part of accepting a new nursing assignment.
This is understandable. There are many different requirements that you have to keep in order to accept nursing jobs. From your verified licenses to vaccines to life support certifications, it can be tough. Not to mention, there is always the possibility of human error when you are working through a recruiter to get the information that you need. Several nurses also stated that they submitted everything that the recruiter said was required, only to find out later there was more needed.
No more confusion. With Nursa™, you will know exactly what your employer needs in order to get to work. When a healthcare facility uploads an open job in the Nursa™ platform, they must list all of the required documentation needed by a nurse to fill the position. As a nurse, when you are creating your unique profile, you will be prompted to enter your documentation. We have a built-in license verification system that saves the time and hassle of finding your paper licenses and scanning them to send in. The Nursa™ profile serves as a digital portfolio that holds all of your nursing documentation. Upload everything directly into the nursing app, including:
- Vaccination records
- Nursing licenses
- Health physical
- PPD skin test
When you apply for a job, the Nursa™ app will review the documentation that you have uploaded into your file, and let you know whether or not you have all the required documents submitted for the particular assignment, or if there are more needed. In the latter case, the specific documentation will be identified that you need.
Employers Love Nursa™, Too
Nurses always come first at Elite Specialty Staffing. Always. The same goes for Nursa™. However, that does not mean that the valued employers we work with are not given appropriate respect and attention as well.
Nursing managers are busy! It’s not an easy job to find the needed workers to staff a facility, whether it’s a hospital, outpatient clinic, doctor’s office, or other healthcare organization. They deserve every break they can get. That’s exactly why they also love the simplicity of using Nursa™. No more long phone calls and conversations with a nurse staffing agency. Once an employer has set up their own Nursa™ profile, they are able to quickly and seamlessly post their available positions. When a nurse who has all the required documentation already completed in Nursa™ applies for a job, the nursing manager can accept and that job will no longer be listed. It’s that simple.
This system is especially useful for those per diem or PRN nursing shifts that need to be filled ASAP. Hospitals often have very little time to get short-notice, short-term nursing positions filled. Calling around to different travel nursing agencies and trying to find a nurse available right away is almost impossible when it comes to urgent staffing needs. When the employer uploads these nursing shifts into the Nursa™ platform, it’s put directly in front of the eyes of local travel nurses who might be interested in picking up the shifts.
