      Adding Your Credentials

      Each facility has specific credential requirements or screening list, and will review your profile to determine if you are a good match for a requested shift. You can add as many additional credentials that you have and we recommend starting with Essential Credentials.   Note: We encourage you to contact your state directly with credential specific questions, as each state varies. Essential Credentials This is the basic screening list that most facilities add. Among Essential Credentials are: COVID-19 Vaccine Card, CPR/First Aid, and Government-issued ID. How to Add Essential Credentials Tap the Menu in the top left corner Select Profile Scroll down to Essential Credentials Tap the essential credential you wish to add Upload credential document (accepted file types PDF, WORD, JPG, PNG) How to Add Other Credentials Adding all your credentials to your profile here is advantageous. Facilities may have additional screening criteria, and having all your credentials listed will help match you with suitable shifts.

      Complete Your Background Check

      Every clinician will have a federal background check run. Some states may also require an additional state-level registry or other background check. Nursa pays for, requests, and uploads your background checks, but you'll have some steps to do too! Trigger Your Background Check To initiate the background check process, you must first upload your Government ID and complete your Wallet.  Then, request your first shift through the Nursa App. Once you request your first shift, Nursa will automatically trigger a two-part background check.  Note: We do not accept previously-run background checks. The federal background check is conducted by a third-party vendor. You will receive instructions via email to complete the necessary steps. After you submit your information to the third-party vendor, the federal background check typically takes 5-7 business days to complete. Keep an eye on your email for updates. Most are marked eligible, if marked ineligible, you will hear from our team    Because Nursa pays for background checks, we want to ensure that all clinicians using the Nursa app are committed to the shifts that they request. For this reason, we do not initiate the background-check process until you request your first shift.     IMPORTANT NOTES: 1. Requesting your first shift triggers the background process on our end.   2. Nursa pays for all background checks EXCEPT any finger print requirements   3. Please ensure that you have uploaded your Drivers License or State ID to the app as well as completed your Wallet before requesting your first shift. That information is necessary for the background check.   4. If Your background check returns as ineligible you will need to reach out to your state to resolve the issue Related Articles Does Nursa require a background check?
