Why Nurses Love ShiftMed

Healthcare professionals across the country choose ShiftMed to do the work they love on their terms and get rewarded for it. Now it's your turn. Our nursing jobs app makes it easy to create a customized work schedule that shifts with your needs, while our ShiftMed Cares™ suite of benefits helps you flourish personally and professionally.

Earning Opportunities

Our nurses have access to earning opportunities outside of hourly wages. With Guaranteed Shifts®, you get paid for the ENTIRE shift if the facility cancels. We also offer holiday pay rates and bonuses based on how many shifts you work and run promotional sweepstakes throughout the year.

Meaningful Rewards

ShiftMed Instant Pay™ is an in-app feature that lets you access up to 75% of your pre-tax earnings whenever and wherever you want—with ZERO transaction fees. If your bank doesn't support Instant Pay ACH transfers, Next Day Pay® is another free in-app feature that lets you access up to 75% of your pre-tax earnings the very next business day—with zero transaction fees. 

You can still get to your shifts on time when transportation issues arise. Our exclusive partnership with Uber Health makes it easy to reserve rides to and from your shifts directly in the app. You can also access meal vouchers and grocery delivery through Uber Eats.

We also have an online-based CNA program with the National Institute for CNA Excellence (NICE) that gives aspiring CNAs tuition-free training and certification.

Health Benefits

We care about your wellbeing—that's why we partner with Hooray Health to offer you the healthcare benefits you deserve. Whether you work eight hours one week and 40 the next, you can take advantage of this amazing incentive.

Healthcare Professionals

ShiftMed is a top nursing jobs app that gives licensed RNs, LPNs, CNAs, GNAs, STNAs, and CHWs the power to choose when, where, and how often they work. We offer per diem, short-term, and permanent employment opportunities.  

Once you've completed our onboarding process, you have direct access to thousands of local shifts in the ShiftMed app. Our shifts occur in various healthcare settings, from skilled nursing facilities to assisted living communities to hospitals. With no shift minimums, you can work 8 hours one week and 40 hours the next.   

Check out our welcome video to learn more. 

We hire licensed RNs, LPNs, CNAs, STNAs, and CHWs who can reliably deliver safe, quality care to patients in various healthcare settings, such as skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities, long-term care facilities, and hospitals.  

 While we hire healthcare professionals across the country, we currently do not offer employment in every state—but we're working hard to change that. We're consistently growing our national footprint and taking on new partner facilities daily.   

We currently offer shifts at facilities in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin. We'll have more states coming soon! 

Once you work your first shift with us, you’re officially a W-2 ShiftMed employee—which means we’ll send you a W-2 form to file your yearly taxes.  

ShiftMed is a nursing jobs app, so you must have an active RN, LPN, CNA, GNA, STNA, or CHW license. We also require RNs and LPNs to have a minimum of six months of experience to apply. 

The onboarding process involves passing a skills quiz, completing employment-related agreements, and providing credentials based on the requirements set forth by your state of residence or the facilities themselves.  

Credentials typically include an annual physical exam, TB test results, a COVID vaccination card (or medical/religious exemption), and a background check.  

Check out our help center article that discusses specific credentialing requirements by state.

Our pay period runs Saturday through Friday, with scheduled paydays every Friday. However, we have options within our app that allow you to access your hard-earned money ahead of schedule. 

ShiftMed Instant Pay™: After you work a shift, you can go into the app and request to receive up to 75% of your pre-tax earnings instantly. We deposit that money directly into your bank account with ZERO transaction fees.  

Next Day Pay®: If your bank doesn't support Instant Pay ACH transfers, you can still get paid before Friday using our Next Day Pay service. After you work a shift, you can go into the app and request to receive up to 75% of your pre-tax earnings the next business day. We deposit your pay directly into your bank account with ZERO transaction fees.

Overtime is available in select circumstances and must be approved in advance.
