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.
