After holding five different positions as a nurse over the last decade, here are a few tips I typically share when asked for advice on getting a job in the nursing field.
The positive effects of increased staff satisfaction in nursing units are well researched. These 7 tips will help you to increase your staff’s satisfaction, making the rest of your goals much easier to achieve.
We looked at 100 NurseGrid accounts across the nation to see how much time and money we were saving them, and how our technology made an impact. Take a look at what we found.
Today, we are thrilled to announce our Series B funding round of $5.7 million, led by Hatteras Venture Partners. It’s an exciting way to start off 2018 and we have big plans for the year ahead.
We recently spoke with one of our NurseGrid Ambassadors in an effort to hear and share her story with our community. Give it a read and let us know if you’d like for us to share your story!
When I worked in a hospital department, we would regularly receive emails from management pleading with us to pick up extra shifts. It always struck me as a clunky, inefficient way to solicit staff to take on open shifts. Outside of NurseGrid’s innovative open-shift platform, there were no solutions for those who weren’t NurseGrid Manager customers – until now.
NurseGrid has placed the power of staff management in your hands. Literally. NurseGrid Manager is our newest mobile app that enables nurse managers to: adapt to census changes quickly, approve shift swaps and giveaways on the go, and more. The best feature? It is completely free.
Everyone has a different practice style and personality and even if a particular physician isn’t your cup of tea, you’ll need to work with them to provide the best care for your patients.
To better empower nurses to become the leaders that our increasingly complex healthcare system needs, hospital facilities must invest in nurse education, mentorship, and professional development, technology innovation, communication, and mutual respect.
Healthcare desperately needs leaders who can see the bigger picture, think on their feet, help facilities adapt, and drive change. Nurses are well positioned to take the reins and make an impact.
When we launched NurseGrid Jobs, the platform contained only a handful of available jobs for users to apply to. We ramped that up to about 200 in the first few months, and today we are excited to announce there are over 9,000 jobs on the platform!

Burnout is one of worst things that can happen to you as a nurse. Blood, guts, and gore — these things don’t phase us. But, burnout? It’s that one thing that can make you take off your scrubs and never want to wear them again.
The complex process of creating and communicating schedules adds extra stress for nurse managers and schedulers.
For two nurses, Katie Duke and Zach Smith, the combination of chance and opportunity led them to careers in both nursing and entrepreneurship.
When NurseGrid was just a concept 3 years ago, we spent a significant amount of time trying to convince others that there was a deep void in the nursing market. After all, we were nurses ourselves and had felt this void first hand.
As nurses and healthcare providers we are constantly busy caring for others, but it's important to remember to practice self-care.
Creating and keeping track of a work schedule as a nurse is daunting and antiquated. A group of nurses in Portland, Oregon, were so fed up with outdated scheduling technology that they set out to make a change. Their creation: NurseGrid.
We hope that we can continue to give back in our community, even if it’s just a tiny fraction of what nurses do every day.
