With summer in full swing, you may be looking for a change of pace. Whether you want to take some time off or are looking for some extra shifts for that extra cash, per diem assignments are the answer you may be looking for.

Here are three reasons why you should try per diem this summer (if you haven’t already!)

Flexible Shifts to Fit Your Schedule

One of the most attractive aspects of working per diem is having a flexible schedule. Per diem nurses fill staffing shortages at facilities due to various reasons. The facility then fills those gaps with per diem nurses. You can accept upcoming shifts as the needs arise with no commitment. Take as many or as few shifts as you prefer!

Whether you have a few vacations planned, are attending school, or simply just ready for some time off, per diem assignments allow you the flexibility to create the work-life balance you need. You could even pick up a few shifts in addition to your full-time job for some extra cash.

Earn Extra Money

Another great benefit of working per diem is the pay. Whether you work per diem full-time or in addition to your full-time position, you’ll be receiving premium pay to fill the urgent needs at the facility. Per diem shifts allow you to build up your financial security without the risk of overworking yourself.

When you’re ready for a break, take it! When you’re ready to start saving up again, you can pick up right where you left off.

Gain Experience at Different Facilities

If you’re looking for a change, starting a per diem assignment is a great way to try out new facilities. If you’re the kind of person that loves to go out of their comfort zone, then per diem assignments are the perfect solution to providing a changing work environment.

Explore different cities and facilities close to or far from home. In the end, the experience you gain will add to your resume and open you up to more opportunities in the future.
