Nurse Humor That Will Brighten Up Your Winter

Winter is a drag in New England. With the combination of wind, snow, and below freezing temps, it’s difficult to go out and enjoy weekends and days off, especially if you have a crazy schedule. Why not stay inside and curl up on the couch instead?! Here’s some nurse humor related to all things winter and snow to entertain you while you stay inside and avoid the blistering cold!

When you wake up for your shift and see three feet of snow on the ground….Don’t we wish Alexa was this competent?

Reflecting on 2018, Welcoming in 2019!

In the blink of an eye, 2018 has came and went. And what an eventful year it was for us at Northeast Med Staff! It’s crazy how much we’ve grown within a year! Every day we’ve been working towards perfecting our services for our nurses and for our clients.  Now, as the year is coming to an end, it’s time for us to reflect on what we’ve accomplished and set our goals for 2019.

Expansion into CT, VT, and ME

We traveled across New England, gathering feedback from all of our facilities and were able to grow our operations into Connecticut, Vermont, and Maine! In the New Year, our employees have even more opportunities and shifts to choose from.

Rewarding Our Staff

In every month of 2018, we picked out one nurse that gave it his/her all that month and rewarded them with Employee of the Month, along with some other gifts. Our employees are superstars and we like to make sure that they feel like superstars!

Internal Growth

Our recruiter, James, and our compliance manager, Deb got CSP certified. They are now experts on the staffing industry. We’re so proud of them! 

We also hired a staffing coordinator, Breanne, and a new account manager, Stephanie. They have already contributed so much throughout their first few months here.

Internship Program

We began our very first internship program in May! We hired two marketing interns from UMass Lowell, who helped us revamp our social media. We ended up keeping them on our team, part-time throughout their semester!

Defining Our Purpose

We defined our company’s purpose statement: “Northeast Med Staff is a community-focused medical staffing agency that connects healthcare professionals with facilities who provide quality healthcare to patients and residents.” We also defined our main three values as “Accountability, Customer Care, and Teamwork.”

These values will help guide us in our future ventures in 2019!

Walk to End Alzheimer’s

In September, we raised awareness during Alzheimer’s Month by participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. It felt great to be able to give back to the community as a company! We will definitely be giving back in 2019 as well!

Sweet 16th Birthday

In November, we celebrated our 16 years of being in business! For the occasion, we posted pictures on our social media of what our employees where doing 16 years ago and what they looked like

Holiday Giveaway

We ended 2018 with a holiday giveaway! We gave 7 of our hardworking nurses, $25 Market Basket gift cards. We are passionate about going above and beyond for our employees!

Improving Your Experience

We are proud to say we offered free CPR and Dementia training to all of our employees. We love helping our staff further their careers and their knowledge!

We collected your feedback about your experiences working at Northeast Med Staff. We listened to what you want to see and what we can improve on. We have taken your suggestions and are working on implementing them in 2019!

Thank you for believing in us throughout 2018! Our nurses, nurse aides, and clients are the reasons why we can continue to grow as a company. In 2019, we hope to grow into more states and offer even more fantastic opportunities to our nurses. We hope to continue to make your experience working for us and with us amazing.

What did you achieve this year? How did you grow as a person? And what do you want to accomplish in 2019?

Working Per Diem During the Holidays

The holidays can be hectic; shopping, cooking, preparing for the New Year. Adding work and family life on top of that can add even more stress. Thankfully, working per diem has the benefits that you need to make the most of your holiday season. Here are just some of the ways that working with a staffing company can help to decrease the stress of the holidays:

 

How Working Per Diem Can Help You Make The Most of This Holiday Season

Schedule Flexibility

In the staffing world, this term comes up frequently. The ability to pick and choose your own hours allows for you to work when you need to, and take time off when you want to. As a result, you have the option to choose your own availability. If you don’t want to work the weekend of Thanksgiving, you have the ability to take it off. If you want to work on Christmas Day, you can do that, too! You only have to work the shifts that suit your personal needs. Once the holidays are over, you can jump right back into the day-to-day grind; or not! You have the power to choose.

Extra Cash

The holidays are expensive. Planning family meals and buying gifts can add up quickly. By working per diem, you can pick up shifts whenever you need to. These extra shifts can help lessen the financial burden that the holidays can bring. At the brink of cold and flu season, nurses are going to be in high demand. As a result, we will have several shifts available for you! If you are interested in taking on some extra shifts, just give your staffing coordinator a call! Our dedicated staff will help to find the balance that is right for you.

Your Nursing Family

Whether you are working in a hospital, an assisted living, or a long-term care facility, the nurses you work with can become like family. Around the holidays, it is important to acknowledge how important you all are to each other. Enjoy the holiday season by celebrating with the people who mean the most to you; your friends, your family, and your coworkers.  

On behalf of everyone at Northeast Med Staff, we wish you all happy holidays, and a safe and healthy New Year.
