What does per diem mean?

Per diem is a Latin term that literally means “by the day” or “daily.” Per diem nursing is great for those who want more flexibility and freedom in their jobs. Per diem workers provide short-term employment to cover for full-time staff who may be sick or on vacation. They also provide additional help during especially busy periods, such as during major holidays.

A per diem nurse’s schedule may look a little different. Unlike other types of contract nursing that can last weeks or months, per diem nurses work for a much shorter period of time. A single per diem assignment may only cover a couple days of employment. Depending on the situation, per diem nurses could be placed in variety of units or even different hospitals and clinics.
