Nursa™ Connects RNs with Per Diem Jobs in Austin, TX
The nursing shortage is widespread and a struggle for most facilities in Austin. Hospitals, home health agencies, long-term care facilities, medical centers, and surgery centers turn to Nursa™ when they have the need of qualified nurses to ensure continuity of care.
They look for per diem staff willing to work shifts by posting these available shifts on the Nursa™ platform. Our smartphone application allows nurses to create their own digital professional portfolio, verify their license and upload their compliance documentation and certifications to be securely stored so they can share them directly with the facilities when they apply for a PRN shift.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that RNs in the Austin area earn an average annual salary of $72,170 or $34.70 an hour. PRN shifts are often listed at a higher than average hourly wage, and as such RNs can increase their earnings by working PRN shifts on the side of their regular job, or by switching to working PRN full time.
Moreover, RNs will find that working PRN gives them the opportunity to gain new experiences and knowledge by selecting shifts in new work environments. Making connections with other clinicians and management staff may open doors in the future for their careers. Additionally, the power to decide when and where to work can be incredibly satisfying.
“Keep Austin Weird” – and Work as a PRN Registered Nurse
According to our resident RNs in the city, there’s more to Austin than being weird. The capital city is large but has lots of family-friendly neighborhoods and is surprisingly more affordable than several of the other big cities in the state.
The cultural scene is diverse and exciting but fabulous food found in food trucks, diners, bars, and restaurants cannot be undervalued. Live music is another trait the city is famous for, and the spring and autumn months are filled with music festivals.
