While we could go on and on about the why Per Diem is simply the bee’s knees, Carla pretty much nails it:
1 – When you go to the store after you get the average hourly wage increase
“Why yes. This is a new mink coat. Thank you for noticing esteemed colleague.”
2 – You make new friends at a bunch of new places and then do awesome things together.
3 – When you’re at work and all you can think about is the 4 day weekend ahead of you.
“Only 2.345334 more hours. I can taste my sweet, sweet freedom.”
4 – When you look at other nurses who are on their 5th day straight of 12-hour shifts.
Luckily for you, this is only going to happen if you let it. Per diem allows you to choose when and where you want to work.
5 – But then you have so many opportunities you don’t feel right turning them down.
Getting so many shifts is a blessing but at the end of this brief period you’ll be back to setting your own schedule.
6 – The down periods are awful. Agencies are supposed to be finding you work left and right.
Luckily you’re signed up with connectRN so you won’t ever have this feeling again.
