Adding your colleagues on Nursegrid is a great way to stay in touch with your coworkers and nurse friends, unlocking all of Nursegrid’s features:

  • Compare your schedule with their schedule.
  • Swap or give away shifts with each other.
  • Message your colleagues.

This article will show you how to send a colleague request, cancel a colleague request, and accept or decline a colleague request.

You can also add your colleagues from your computer.


  • Once you have connected with a colleague, they will be able to message you, view your schedule, and compare your schedule with theirs.
  • When viewing or comparing your schedule, colleagues will only be able to see your working shifts. They will not be able to see any of your personal events, vacation, education or meeting events.
  • If you choose to have a hidden profile, you cannot be searched for and requested to connect by any other Nursegrid user and any connected colleagues will not be able to see your schedule.

Send a Colleague Request

1. On the lower tab bar, tap on Colleagues:

1. Under Received Invites, tap on their profile.

2. In the upper-right corner, tap on the button.

3. Tap Block.

A pop-up window will appear, confirming that you would like to block this colleague. Tap Yes to proceed.
