Clinicians are encouraged to check in for their shifts on the app to ensure proper communication between clinicians and the facility. It also demonstrates to the facility that you’re engaged in the shift, arriving on time, and are reliable.
Checking in also helps protect you, as it’s a record of when you arrived at the facility. However, your Shift Report will be the source of information for determining your payment, which you can always edit after your shift is over.
“I’m Here” and Countdown
One hour before your shift starts, you’ll see the “I’m Here” button prompt to check in for your shift in three places:
|A pop-up||On Shift Details||On Your Schedule Page|
Tap the “I’m Here” button when you’ve arrived to log your arrival and let the facilities know you’re at their building.
After tapping “I’m Here,” you see a confirmation message with your confirmed arrival time, which schedulers will also be able to see.
Check-In Best Practices
DO NOT check in early – Even though the “I’m Here” button appears one hour before your shift starts, only tap “I’m Here” when you have arrived at the facility. You can close out the pop up and return to the Shift Details at any time to confirm your arrival.
DO check in late if you forgot – Checking in is just a record of your arrival, but it does not impact your pay. You will still complete a Shift Report at the end of your shift and mark the correct time you arrived. You will be paid for the entire time you worked, even if you forgot to check in right away. For those using Nursa Direct and planning to be paid instantly, you can check in late and still fulfill the “I’m Here” requirement.
You will always still complete a Shift Report at the end of the shift to report your start, end, and break times.
