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.
Labor and delivery (L&D) nurses care for mothers and newborns. You coach parents during labor, assist mothers with pregnancy and delivery complications, offer advice on caring for babies, and even look after newborns in their first days of life.
BSN’s are professionals who have earned a Bachelor's degree in nursing. A BSN is a degree awarded to the registered nurses (RN) at an undergraduate level.
ER Nurses are high-earners in the nursing profession. Given their job's fast-paced, stressful nature, these nursing specialists are always on the front lines of medical care and emergency treatment.
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.
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.
