Nursa defers to CDC guidelines for COVID-19 protocol and vaccines for healthcare workers. When reviewing a Nursa shift request, facilities will be able to see if you have provided proof of a COVID-19 vaccine.
While Nursa itself does not require that you have the Covid-19 vaccine, there are many states and facilities that do. Facilities will include this requirement in their Screening List, and it is your responsibility to thoroughly read shift details to ensure you are in compliance.
If you have received your COVID-19 vaccine, please add it into your Nursa profile for facilities to review.
If you do not have the vaccine in your profile and you try requesting a shift at a facility that does require it, your chances of being hired are decreased.
Covid Vaccine Exemption
You may upload a vaccine exemption to your Nursa profile under "Other Credentials" (not under the "COVID - 19 Vaccine Card" Essential Credential). Facilities may or may not accept the exemption as per their own facility policies.
Nursa does not provide a vaccine exemption form in any state, rather we encourage you to contact your state health department for more information.
For more information on COVID-19 vaccines for healthcare professionals, you can review the Federal Register document “Medicare and Medicaid Programs; Omnibus COVID-19 Health Care Staff Vaccination.”
