Find Per Diem Jobs in Oklahoma City

Are you a nurse living in Oklahoma City? Are you tired of getting stuck with the worse shifts? Are you missing your kids’ birthdays and other special events? Do you often feel pressured into working overtime? Say no more! With the Nursa healthcare staffing app, you can find per diem, or PRN, jobs in Oklahoma City and work on your own terms, picking up shifts when it’s convenient for you. Likewise, if you are open to a temporary or long-term move, you should also consider a per diem job in Oklahoma City. 

Read on to learn why PRN work is right for you and why OKC is a great place to do it.

What Are PRN Jobs?

PRN stands for the Latin term ‘pro re nata’, which means ‘as the situation demands’ or ‘as needed’. PRN nurses are fully qualified professionals who decide to work on demand instead of full time. They can choose to pick up single shifts or many, depending on their financial needs as well as other considerations, such as the demands of family life.

Why Should I Live in Oklahoma City?

Living and working in Oklahoma City is great for many reasons, but the top reason is also the most important: according to GOBankingRates, OKC is one of the few US cities where you can live comfortably on an average household income of less than $50,000. In fact, you can cover your necessities with just $18,701 per year.  

Let’s break it down further just for fun. The median rent in OKC is $1,084, the 14th least expensive nationwide. Groceries in Oklahoma City are the 18th least expensive in the country at $292.74 monthly. Utilities are a little pricey at $157.63, but transportation is the lowest in the country at only $30 per month. 

You’re probably thinking that with such low living expenses salaries must be abysmal. However, in this case you’ll be glad to know that you are wrong. Oklahoma City made GOBankingRates’ number one spot for cities with high salaries in addition to low costs of living. The average household income in this city is $72,385, way above what is needed to live well in OKC.

Finally, we’ll tell you what you must be dying to know about: nurses’ salaries. The average annual wage of a registered nurse (RN) in OKC is $68,510. Although this is below the national average for RNs ($75,330), when you factor in cost of living, this salary is more than enough to single-handedly support your entire family – and then some. In the case of licensed practical nurses (LPNs), it would be a little difficult to support your household solely on an average salary of $44,300 per year, but this would be true anywhere in the country since the national average salary for an LPN is $48,820. In fact, if you need to get by on a single income, Oklahoma City is a good place to do it. 

What Are Things to Do in Oklahoma City?

We have established that there are many practical reasons to live in Oklahoma City, but if you’ve never been there, you are probably wondering if it’s also a fun place to live and a good place to move your family to. Let’s take a look at some fun things to do in OKC.
