Feature Series: Connecting with Colleagues

NurseGrid Feature Update: Start connecting with your coworkers using the latest NurseGrid feature!

Calling, texting, or emailing every nurse in your department isn’t the most effective way to know when they are working. NurseGrid allows you to connect with any colleague across your work sites. Connect and invite your peers to start messaging them in real-time, swapping shifts, and planning vacation days right away! Never has it been easier to communicate and work together as a department, no matter where you are.

NurseGrid makes it easy to invite your colleagues via your phone contacts, Facebook friends, or email contacts. Send your invites straight from the NurseGrid app.

Can’t think of everyone? NurseGrid will also suggest the colleagues you should connect with based on your department and hospital.

Happy connecting!


NurseGrid is the first scheduling and communication app built exclusively for nurses, by nurses. The NurseGrid App operates independently of any existing hospital systems, which means any nurse can use it to save countless hours managing your personal work schedule.

Many NurseGrid features get unlocked when you invite your colleagues to download the app as well. Once your colleagues join, you can see each other's work schedules, send private messages, and quickly find people who can work for you when you need to swap a shift. Never again deal with the usual headache of phone calls/emails/texts to complete a shift swap! Inviting your colleagues is easy through our Facebook and email integrations.

NurseGrid is founded by RN's, and our mission is to help nurses take control of their work life. As nurses, we got tired of how much time it took to manage our work schedule, so we decided to make a better way for all nurses.
