    7. Do I need to work a minimum number of hospital shifts to maintain access?

      Nursa, being a marketplace platform and not the employer, does not impose a minimum shift requirement to maintain access to hospitals. However, hospitals may have their own requirements (which vary depending on the facility), and will be discussed once your experience is verified and you are deemed eligible for hospital shifts.

    11. Do you offer travel expenses or stipends for hospital shifts?

      Travel expenses or stipends are to be communicated between the clinician and the facility, as Nursa's role is solely to serve as a marketplace platform connecting the two parties.

    12. Is there overtime pay for working hospital shifts?

      When reviewing the pay rate on a Shift Card, the pay that you see is the pay that you will receive. That pay already includes variables like weekends, nights, and holidays. Facilities may choose to add a bonus to a shift, but that is completely up to their discretion. If a facility chooses to add a bonus either before or after the shift, it will show as a different line item on the Shift Card and be in addition to the pay rate. When you pick up shifts with Nursa, you are paid as a 1099 independent contractor. This means that overtime hours do not apply.

    13. Does my international experience apply if I am wanting to work hospital shifts?
