Why You Will Love Working Per Diem

Our nurses love working per diem. However, not all staffing agencies are the same. Northeast Med Staff stands out from its competitors by offering our  employees benefits that other agencies do not. We are a community-focused medical staffing agency that connects healthcare with facilities who provide quality care for patients and residents. With that, we strive to offer our nurses the highest quality benefits available. Here is a list of just some of the amazing perks of being a Northeast Med Staff nurse or nurse aide: 

Our Nurses Love Working Per Diem. Here’s Why You Will, Too!

Change of Pace

Going to work in the same facility day after day can become monotonous. Seeing the same faces, doing the same actions, and working the exact same hours can make you feel like you are in a rut. Working per diem allows you to vary what facilities you are going to. It helps to keep your day interesting. This change of pace can even prevent nurse burnout! Northeast Med Staff works to coordinate our nurses’ skills with the best facilities.


Schedule flexibility means the freedom to work the hours that fit into YOUR schedule. As a result, you are able to work the hours you want and use the rest of your time to do whatever it is that you love to do. Whether you have a family commitment, or are just taking some personal time to care for yourself, we have the flexibility you need!  

Comprehensive Benefits

Unlike many other staffing agencies, Northeast Med Staff provides all employees who work 35+ hours per week full medical, dental, life, and disability insurances, as well as 401k plans. But we don’t stop there. Additionally, part-time employees who work as few as 20+ hours per week are eligible to receive other voluntary benefits.  

These are just some of the many benefits of being a Northeast Med Staff nurse. To find out more about how to become a member of our team, click the “Apply Now” button at the top of this page!

Top 5 Job Benefits That Employees Really Care About

Job benefits can make or break a job position. They can have a huge influence on whether a possible applicant applies, whether a candidate takes the job, and whether a current employee stays at their job.  Stay competitive with your benefits in order to attract and retain the very best talent.

Top 5 Job Benefits That Employees Really Care About
Top 5 Job Benefits That Employees Really Care About

We’ve gathered the top five job benefits that employees today care about:

1.) Health Benefits

It’s no surprise that health benefits are at the top of the list. Most people care about their health, especially those in the medical field! Give your employees comprehensive plans with multiple options. Even though some people want family plans, others may not. It’s extremely important to give your employees quality choices, for every price level.

2.) Work-Life Balance

Nowadays, we are expected to work while also balancing family and friend commitments. Facilities that do not give their staff proper work-life balance, are allowing their staff’s motivation to suffer. Working too many hours, too long of shifts, and overexerting oneself at work can lead to burnout.

Burnout leads to more serious conditions and also lowers the amount of positive patient outcomes. Motivate your staff and give them flexibility in their schedule.

3.) Choice of Location

A long, traffic-filled commute every day kills an employee’s motivation. Give your staff the option to switch it up! Offer them the ability to switch facility locations, and float between locations. Working closer to home makes a huge difference in someone’s day.

4.) Assignment Variety

Many nurses and nurse aides want to be exposed to a variety of medical settings. This allows them to get a vast amount of experience, while also eliminating the monotony of working at the same facility every day. Facilities that work with agencies are likely to have a highly motivated staff, because of the constant change of work setting.

5.) Shift Autonomy

What’s more convenient than being able to chose what shift you work? Nurses and nurse aides value being able to request their preferred shifts, and preferred days of the week to work. Listen to your employees and give them a say in their position.

It’s extremely important to take the time and consideration in choosing top notch job benefits. Keep in mind these efforts will help you recruit and retain employees. Show that you’re listening to your staff and making the efforts to accommodate their preferences. You’ll have a happier staff and happier patients!
