Syncing NurseGrid with iCal on iPhone, iPad, & MacBook

  • To sync with iCal on iPhones and iPads: Tap the gear icon near the top-right of the calendar screen. Scroll down to the Calendar Sharing section and make sure that Enable Calendar Sharing is toggled on. Then tap Sync NurseGrid Calendar to iPhone. Toggle on any worksites you’d like to appear in iCal, then tap Add in the top-right corner of the screen.
    • When the pop-up message appears asking if you’d like to subscribe to the calendar “My NurseGrid Shifts”, tap Subscribe. A new pop-up message will appear, saying “The Calendar ‘My NurseGrid Shifts’ has been added.” If you press View Events, you’ll be taken right into iCal, where you’ll see your synced shifts!
    • Don’t forget to check your iPhone settings to make sure shifts stay up to date: In your iPhone settings, tap the Passwords & Accounts section, then select Fetch New Data. Tap “My NurseGrid Shifts” and make sure that Fetch is selected with a checkmark symbol.
    • Syncing to your iPhone’s iCal will not cross over to other devices, so if you’d like to sync iCal on your iPad with NurseGrid, you’ll need to do so separately.



  • To sync with iCal on desktops and laptops: In NurseGrid, tap the gear icon and then scroll down and tap Generate NurseGrid Calendar Feed. You’ll see a list of all of your worksites with toggles – toggle on any worksites that you’d like to sync with your iCal. Tap Share in the top-right corner and the usual iOS sharing options will appear. Go ahead and email yourself the subscription link.
    • You can also find your NurseGrid calendar weblink by logging into your NurseGrid account on a desktop. First, log into your NurseGrid account at Select the Options button in the upper right corner and copy the weblink found under Your Calendar URL.
    • Once you have the subscription weblink, Open iCal on your computer, then click File. Select New Calendar Subscription, then simply copy and paste your subscription link into the calendar URL field. Press Subscribe, and your shifts will sync with iCal on your computer!
