Looking for per diem nurse jobs? ADVANCE Healthcare Jobs has many listings from top agencies. If flexibility is your strong suit, and you'd like to schedule your work around your life, then per diem nurse careers are a great choice.
A per diem nurse works on a day-to-day basis when he or she is needed to cover for regularly-scheduled nurses on their days off. A per diem nurse may also be called in to supplement regular staff when there is a sudden influx of patients. A per diem nurse may work in a specialty area, such as critical-care nursing, or serve a more general role on various nursing units. Per diems are well compensated for their flexibility. The job pay varies, based on geographic location, hospital system, and area of specialty, but agency rates will average between $30 and $40 per hour. Working a late-night or weekend shift in intensive care at a hospital in a large metropolitan area may even pay as much as $50 an hour. Start your job search right here!
