The Pulse of the Profession
Welcome to the ShiftMed blog where we discuss everything nursing, from professional insights to healthcare holidays to helpful hints for working with us.
Charge Nurses are also Operating Room or Theater Nurses. They often have supervisory roles and can perform most tasks assigned to general nurses. They ensure the shift runs smoothly and coordinate with the hospital administrators, physicians, and staff nurses.
Nothing is more irritating than arriving at a facility ready to work only for your shift to be canceled—and it’s even worse if you’ve secured childcare and wasted gas. We know cancellations are a common frustration among healthcare professionals who work through nursing jobs apps. But claiming shifts with ShiftMed is different.
Labor and delivery nurses (L&D nurses) serve mothers during labor and delivery. Nurses in L&D help women through the most transformative experience of their lives. They witness the miracle of childbirth every shift and care for infants immediately following their arrival into the world.
NICU Nurses are specialists in infant care. They work in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to nurse babies back to health so they can go home with their families. In addition, a NICU Nurse works with infants who are born prematurely, born with congenital disabilities, disabilities, or other illnesses.
