In Latin, per diem translates to ‘for each day’ and in the staffing world it refers to day to day or one off staffing solutions. We have opportunities in a variety of units at many local hospitals and health systems, as well as long-term care facilities, home care, schools, and other outpatient settings. Every opportunity will have its own clearance process, and you can review the orientation process and dates for locations that interest you by visiting our Hospital Orientations Page. Please note that nursing credentialing and orientation processes for hospitals are very extensive. For any hospital based nursing PRN options below you must be in ‘active’ status with CMS and cleared for hospital placements. If you are not in ‘active’ status and cleared for hospital placements, please consider our current contract opportunities.

The benefit of per diem staffing is you pick and choose which dates and hours you want to work. There is no minimum hours requirement, but there is also the possibility of a shift being canceled due to patient census or other reasons. You can also try a variety of different setting to learn which work best for you.

In order to start scheduling on a per diem basis, you must complete the hiring process and become a formal employee of CMS. Visit our Employment Requirements Page to learn more about the hiring & credentialing process.
