[VIDEO] Brace Yourselves: The NurseGrid App Is Finally Here!

Over a year ago we set out to create the most useful app out there for nurses. Being nurses ourselves, we started with the pain that we felt the most. In particular, the fact that we had no way to easily enter and visualize our shifts! Further, we wanted the ability to connect with colleagues in our department so we could swap shifts and see their schedules. And lastly, we wanted to be able to do all of this ON OUR PHONES.

We present to you, the NurseGrid app, now free in the App Store.


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 of the NurseGrid App's best 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 RNs, 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 schedules, so we decided to make a better way for all nurses.
