Will I get canceled a lot?

Favorite Nurses may not always notify you immediately when a shift has been canceled because every possible effort is made to find you work based on your availability.

Do you have a required amount of shifts?

Can you explain Favorite Nurses payroll process?

A: The weekly payroll period for Favorite begins Saturday at 7:00 a.m. and ends with the 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. shift on Friday night. A different time card is to be used for each facility in which you worked during a pay period (Saturday through Friday).

Make sure that the time card is signed on a shift-by-shift basis in the appropriate space (initials are not acceptable). We have designed a new payroll method which allows our employees to fax their time cards (now called assignment records) directly to a toll-free number, 1-866-FAV-PAYS (1-866-328-7297). This new system insures accuracy and timeliness - no more postal delays! Although you fax the assignment record as you would any other fax, Favorite Nurses does not receive the information in the form of a paper fax. Rather, the data is electronically read and matched against our scheduling system. For comparison to our scheduling system, all variances are held for review. Therefore, it is extremely important to complete your assignment record accurately.

Some client facilities utilize the Employee Assignment Record as a sign-in sheet. If the facility where you work does so, make certain to complete the appropriate line of the sign-in sheet and specify all of the requested information for each shift. You will be compensated according to the competency level for which you are screened and the area and client to which you are assigned. Any qualified employee is eligible to earn the highest respective rate. A pay rate sheet is available at the branch office for your review.

If you are ever in doubt of what information is needed, give more instead of less to help to insure proper payment. If you would like to confirm our receipt of your fax, call 1-877-215-7999, follow the steps and use the reference number at the bottom of the new faxable form.

You can view your payroll information by logging onto our website using your user name and password. This allows you to get current or year-to-date details on withholding and wages, or to confirm direct deposit routing information.
