One of the many struggles that go along with managing a nursing staff is the dreaded nurse scheduling problem. As a nurse manager, you have a lot of positions to fill at any given time, all the while juggling the concerns and demands of your administrator and your staff members.
Today, we are excited to announce a big update and new features to NurseGrid Manager. With the release of our new Reassign, Split Shift, and Convert to Open Shift features, NurseGrid customers have even easier ways to manage their schedule.
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.

Despite its noble intentions, the Triple Aim of healthcare may be causing more pain than intended, at least according to a study in the Annals of Family Medicine. And it’s no surprise that nurses and nurse managers are feeling the sting too.
As healthcare continues to evolve, nowhere is the push and pull situation--the need to improve care quality and patient satisfaction on one hand and reduce costs on the other--more acute than in nursing. And nurse managers find themselves right in the middle.
Today we’re excited to announce two powerful new features for NurseGrid Manager. We’re now surfacing more actionable team and department updates and streamlining schedule distribution and communication--and we think everybody will be pretty happy about it.
At NurseGrid, we want to help you take back time so you can focus on what really matters at work and in life. Nurses are pretty social people; it’s part of what makes them interested and successful in a career focused on delivering excellent care to their patients.
