Is per diem staffing the right fit for you? What does it take to be successful as a temporary nursing professional in this industry?
Reliability – Being on time and reliable is very important in this industry. As a per diem nursing professional, you have accepted the role of caregiver to those that need help. Being there when their family and friends are unavailable is important to the residents. The tasks you perform daily shows your caring and generous spirit.
Great Communicator – A per diem nursing professional may have to work in different settings with new people, so it is vitally important that you communicate effectively. Excellent communication includes asking questions when a situation is not clearly understood. Relay all vital information to the facility staff before, during, and after every shift. Great communication ensures that you are following the proper guidelines.
Adaptability – Every day will include something different. Please keep an open mind and be acceptable of the assignments you are given. The healthcare industry is fast paced and constantly growing, use any tasks given as a learning opportunity to grow within your skill set.
Calm, Cool, and Composed – Be confident. Working in the nursing field can include high stress from the day to day work within facilities, and the various attitudes you will encounter. Per Diem nursing professionals need to maintain a composed attitude and be able to handle stress with an unruffled appearance and voice. Some days the work and attitudes may be harder than others but try to stay calm and keep your composure.
