Crisis Nurse or COVID-19 Contract: What You Need to Know
Be Flexible. This is not the time to ask for certain hours or shifts. You may be working days and/or nights on eight or 12-hour shifts. We will not be able to accommodate any scheduling requests so please be flexible.
Be ready to drop everything and go. Facilities need help now. We may talk to you today and put you on a plane tomorrow or the next day. The need is urgent so expect the process to move quickly. Pack the essentials now so you are ready for the call.
Help in any way possible. In this time of great need, you must be a team player. As long as your health and safety are prioritized, expect that your help and expertise will be needed in different ways. There is always risk involved so make sure to communicate with you recruiter with any issues that arise.
Travel and housing are covered. While we may have you on a plane quickly, know that with most of these contracts the cost of your travel and housing are covered. These short-term contracts are set up through and paid for by the government.
Be supportive. Your role may be different than what you’ve done in the past. That is because this pandemic is like nothing most of us have ever experienced.
