What is per diem nursing?
The term “per diem” originates from Latin roots, meaning “for each day”. This means that per diem nurses work when they are needed, and they are compensated based on the days they work instead of a fixed salary.
Per diem nursing offers flexibility for nurses to work across multiple healthcare facilities, providing extra hours and occasional shifts without the commitment of a full-time position. Favorite is the perfect choice for nurses who want to pick up shifts on an as-needed basis.
Compared to staff nurses, per diem nurses have the advantage of flexibility and autonomy in their schedule, allowing them to choose when and where to work.
