  4. In California, all healthcare facilities providing direct care services are required to have a signed California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Form 530 on file for each non-employee individual who is paid for direct care services (i.e. independent contractors). To help facilities fulfill this requirement, starting June 13, 2024 all clinicians will be required to e-sign a digital copy of the CDPH 530 form in order to be paid for the shift. Facilities will have access to e-sign their portion of the form and download completed copies for their records. This feature is active for all shifts completed in California. Use Nursa's new digital CDPH 530 form as a replacement to your current process or in addition to your existing workflow as a backup. How do I fill out CDPH 530 forms? As a facility user for shifts in California, you will be able to easily sign and complete the CDPH 530 form when submitting your facility shift report. Complete your shift report as normal The form will pop up and you will give your electronic signature Click "Sign and Confirm" Submit shift report Note: If a facility user does not complete their shift report and it is auto-verified, the form will need to be signed before downloading. How do I download CDPH 530 forms? Click the menu in the top left corner Scroll to "Data" tab Select "CDPH 530" If connected to multiple facilities, Select a Facility Filter by the shift date range you are interested in Select the forms you wish to download Select "Sign Selected" if signatures are still needed Note: You can only download forms that are signed Select "Download Selected" to download forms Note: This form is only available for facilities located in California.
  5. I’m extremely frustrated… In the app it offers, once you work 3 shifts you qualify for instant pay. What they don’t mention is it’s not vastly available in most states. It’s gravely irritating and frustrating that it offers pay is done on Mon and Wed then takes 2-3 days for it to appear in your acct. What I have learned is, as the medical staffer, we are expected to show up promptly and complete the shift to the facility expectations. However, they can take there time to complete the shift report. I worked a shift, it’s now been a week ago and it just now has been processed but I still have to wait 3 days for it to hit my acct. When most of these shifts are anywhere from 60-240 miles from my home. My gas tank doesn’t allow me to say “I know your empty but we must go to work anyway.” It takes money! My daycare provider does not allow me to say “sorry, I still have not been paid, so you have to wait.” Why is it acceptable for the facilities to take there sweet time to confirm you did the job? Working with Nursa, your payday is too unpredictable. That shows great unprofessionalism. There are so many other agencies that provide same day pay, I try to a avoid Nursa staffing as I have to ensure income in a timely fashion. In addition, if they are going to expect folks to assist with facilities it would be great if they offered the standard federal mileage reimbursement or lodging for back to back shifts at same facility. Especially as they allow pay to be delayed. I try not to recommend Nursa to my colleagues as I don’t like to hear the same bothersome complaints of 1. Payout 2. Unpredictable acceptance of shifts 3. Distance to facility without compensation 4. Often not having oncoming nurse coverage making you responsible to stay 5. Lack of communication from facility, especially related to several admissions 6. Facility expectation of you being the scape goat for the heavy unpleasant work load while the perm staff coast through the shift 7. Overall dissatisfaction with unprofessional tactics allowed from facilities. Staff being held at higher expectations then that of the facilities. Penalizing staff for need to cancel but “oh well” when the facility does.
  6. I saw a facility I haven't seen very often or they are relatively new. Their facility photo is a photo of the Carnegie Village Retirement Village in Belton, Missouri. Carnegie Nursing Home is a far cry from that 5 star facility. If anything that made me laugh, but it is a bit deceiving.
  7. I can on here to say that after working for Nursa for a year things have gone downhill with them. I get “accepted” for a NOC shift and don’t look at other options because I’ve been “accepted “ yet, hours before my shift I am cancelled! This is happening 100% of the time! These facilities are making me a back up plan obviously and Nursa needs to step up and put an end to this game! After being cancelled so many times from a facility I decided to cancel my shifts with them and then Nursa dings me for it and put a hold on my account. This isn’t right. I’ll be looking at other companies where the facility is held accountable and not hitting me with being “irresponsible.”
  8. Hi there… I’m new to Nursa. Just wondering how long it normally takes for a facility to accept and/or deny your request for shifts. I put in a week ago for 3 shifts and have done my profile work and messaged the facility with no response. What other steps do I need to take to make sure I get the shifts I requested to be accepted?
  9. Numerous facilities utilize a variety of scheduling software platforms for internal scheduling. Nursa has forged partnerships and tailored integrations with COVR, EasyShifts, UKG, and is actively in discussions with additional collaborations. If you employ scheduling software and are open to exploring custom integration options, please reach out to your Nursa Account Manager for further discussion. COVR Demo Video
  10. Daylight Saving Time begins on the second Sunday in March, moving clocks forward at 2AM, and ends on the first Sunday in November, with clocks turning back at 2AM. The Nursa app seamlessly adjusts for these transitions, ensuring accurate shift report calculations for facility invoices. If you are approving shifts reports during the transition, the app will tell you that your actual hours will be accurately reflected on your invoice, whether an extra hour or one less. Note: Hawaii and Arizona, non-participants in daylight savings, remain unaffected.
  11. Introducing Organization and Unit Roles **Coming soon** Based on roles set by an organization administrator, each unit or facility can have specified roles and permissions allowed within the Nursa App. Organization Management serves as a central hub within the Nursa app, empowering facilities to efficiently oversee and optimize your internal scheduling structures. This dynamic system streamlines the management of organizations, including buildings, units, and associated users, fostering enhanced collaboration and streamlined operations. Organization Roles: Administrator: Grants access to the Organization Management dashboard and allow user to manage the units and users that belong to the organization Member: Users that are connected to the organization or any unit associated with the organization but unable to access organization management. Unit Roles: Manager: Grants the ability to post shifts, manage shifts’ policies, accept or reject shift requests, submit facility shift reports, manage facility profile and access financial information. Scheduler: Grants the ability to post shifts, manage shift’s policies, accept or reject shift requests and submit facility shift reports. Viewer: Can view all information but unable to complete any actions. How It Works Only the Organization Administrators will be able to view the Organization Management hub. Access and edit through the following: Tap Menu Tap Settings Select Organization Management Switch Organization that you may be connected to by selecting the Switch button. Edit Units by taping Units and locating specific unit name and selecting the three dots on the right to Edit Unit Profile. Edit Roles by taping Users and selecting three dots to Edit Role. Ensure you are saving changes as you go The Organizational Management hub is an invaluable resource to facilities is designed to empower and provide autonomy to organization administrators to manage units and users. With its user-friendly interface and powerful features, this hub is an invaluable asset for organizations.
  12. Finding Nursa clinicians who have worked at your facility and pulling a PBJ report has never been easier. With our new Clinician Directory, facility users can search clinicians by name and filter the clinician list by a specified date period. Tap Menu in the top left Select Data Select Clinicians Filter Clinicians using Facility drop-down, Date Range and Search bar A list of all clinicians matching criteria will populate Select to export as CSV file or simply view selected profiles If downloading CSV, it will be sent to email associated with your profile including: Job ID Shift Start Date Name License Facility Shift Time Time Worked Profile URL Mock Report
  13. I’m new to nursa. Since being on nursa I’ve requested so many different positions as a CNA that were available 3 and 4 days prior. The day of my shifts I receive a notification saying my shift is already filled. Then an hour before that scheduled shift. I’m asked if I am still available to work the shift. (No, because once I was told filled. I went to my day job for work).Which shows someone the facility gave the position to they called in. I’m having a hard time understanding this. It seems to be a bit unprofessional and misleading. This should be a first come first serve situation. I am so grateful that I did not leave my day job to become an continuous employee with nursa because I would be without work due to the fact of the facilities having their favorite picks on staff. Which apparently their favorite picks don’t even show up for work. I chose to sign up for nursa because I’m currently working in the hospital 3 days of the week and its 12 hr shifts Doing overtime would be a bit much. Nursa gives you the benefit of working 8 hr shifts which works well for me plus from my understanding it’s a weekly pay,but what’s the hassle in requesting to work to only be disappointed when you’re rejected the day your shift starts. Nursa contract with these facilities needs to be revised because it’s unfair. Especially for families that really needs work to help feed their families.

    Most facilities do not have the time to deny every request they get sent in, so is there anyway we can remove the facilities ability to let the shift requester know that they're not going to be accepted for the shift without the facility need to do so? And is there any way that the facility can have to choose what kind of shift it is? (Ex. On-call, full shift etc.) There should be an automated system that will allow the first requester to be confirmed and all others after to be denied or even just have the shift removed once one person already requested or has been confirmed by the shift. And a time limited request would be great so that way these facilities can't just post a shift and forget to respond to it. This app could use more accountability and be even more interactive on the facilities side.
  15. There was a brief thread in July regarding facilities that post shifts but do not respond to clinicians who request them. In my previous post, I mentioned that there are certain facilities that post shifts that are not actually available, and it is misleading to clinicians and ultimately a waste of time. On Tuesday, I requested a posted shift for Friday, 12/08. I informed the scheduler about the shift this morning and included a snippet of her response. As far as I know, the facility is not known for doing this, and I hope it does not become a long-term problem. What measures has NURSA taken to discourage facilities from posting shifts 'just in case'?
  16. Why don’t these facilities reply back to emails ?
  17. Essential credentials + TB within the last 12 months seem to be popular! Are you seeing any others?
  18. This is a good app but allot of the staffing from facilities don't know what they want and that's not ok. I say this because I have requested 5 shifts from one facility all for the same day. I requested these shifts about a week ago, and 3 of them are for day two are for night. It's 1pm and the facility still hasn't done it's due diligence to say the shifts I requested for the day have been filled and I can assume correctly that my night request will not give me a notice. Why is this ok? I just don't get what is the point of saying you want help if you don't need it? I think a time limited request would help because these facilities are just fooling around with people's time and expectations and that's not ok.
  19. If a facility cancels you last minute, its ok for them to do, but if we do it we get a 2 week ban? Thats ridiculous. I had a facility cancel my shifts today for a few hours from now, stating they filled it in house. Ok, but if I had done that to them, I'd be on a 2 week ban. Of course they can get away with it and no consequences for them, meanwhile I'm missing an entire nights work because I don't have anything open last minute to pick up. It's as inconvenient for me to plan to work over night and now I'm short an entire shift for the week and either have to take the pay cut or make it up. This has happened to others I know, one drove over an hour from where we live to be cancelled when she got there. This isn't acceptable at all and there should be some recourse for us. We spend our time and fuel to go to these places and fill their deficiencies, and they wonder why they can't keep appropriately staffed? I go to this place frequently, they call me at all hours to come cover shifts for them and I do. I told them today not to bother calling me to come cover down if they can't have the decency to not cancel a scheduled shift on me last minute.
  20. I have never had this problem before and have no idea the exact solution. I requested an RN shift and was cancelled shortly after I was scheduled for the shift. I was in the middle of driving there so I may have missed the alert. Not sure exactly when the cancellation occurred. The message states "Facility has removed you from their shifts. You are no longer scheduled for this shift." In the Nursa terms it states a facility has to pay $75 if they simply cancel you before the shift starts and within 12 hours of the shift starting. I am not seeing any $75 payment. It also states in the terms that they must pay you 50% of the remainder of the shift if you are cancelled after the start time. I cannot see a time stamp, but I was able to tap "I'm Here" in the app on the shift, but found out that I was cancelled possibly after I arrived. How do I make sure I am receiving payment for this cancellation and getting the proper cancellation payment. At a minimum I believe I am owed $75, but I did arrive at the facility. The only thing that is not clear is when they actually removed me from the shift. I am unclear since there is no time stamp. I believe what happened is they double booked the same shift and picked the cheaper LPN worker. In my opinion just playing games. I called support and reported it, but I feel like support ignored the issue and gave me no assurance that I would receive anything. Has anyone else experienced a similar issue? How did it turn out?

    A facility marked me as a NCNS when I did in fact arrive for the shift. When I arrived at the facility I was told that they were fully staffed and that I needed to call their scheduler. When I called the person, they told me that they had forgotten to cancel me and that I needed to go home. Somehow, I was then marked as a NCNS by the facility. Despite having screenshots of my calls and texts with the facility scheduler, my account is frozen with Nursa and has been for almost TWO WEEKS. How can this happen when I was the one who was inconvenienced? I arrived for the shift and have proof but Nursa does not believe their clinicians and cuts off our livelihoods instead of resolving the issue. I have been in contact with several “customer service” reps and they have all been less than helpful. I’m hoping by posting on here, I will get someone’s attention who can actually help.
  22. Facilities just aren't posting like they once were. What gives? I've noticed various facilities switching agencies/apps, but not to Nursa. Hope things get better.
  23. I drove two hours to a shift tonight only to find out that the facility had “forgotten” to cancel me. I contacted Nursa and the only compensation they offer is $75?! I know it’s not Nursa’s fault but they should offer more protection for their nurses in these situations. $75 is nothing compared to what I thought I would be making tonight. Not only that but now the other jobs I could have requested have been filled. I know that if we no show or late cancel a shift there are repercussions but what about the facility? What happens to them for completely wasting my time?
  24. Curious if anyone else has a strategy when working at a new facility. I have heard working a NOC shift at a facility to see if you like it and if you do, working the swing and then a day shift if you like that facility. Anyone else?
  25. Many facilities may require clinicians to take unpaid breaks. We know how those minutes also equal dollars when breaks aren't properly taken. So you can specify whether an unpaid break (lunch or rest break) is mandatory on your shift. Note: Entering break time is completely optional (but recommended if your facility requires it) and should only be used for unpaid break time. Do not add any paid break times, as anything added by this process will automatically be unpaid. Adding a Break Time When you’re adding a new shift: Tap Break Tap Create new Break Once you’ve created a break time, it will be available to use in the future, or you can create other break times as needed Enter the break time in minutes, e.g. 30 The break time cannot be longer than the duration of the shift, so make sure you add the shift time first Tap Save Break If you add a break time but then want to remove it before posting the shift, you will need to set the break time to 0, as once it’s edited, it cannot be removed Finish posting the shift Clinicians will see the required break time on the Shift Details when reviewing and requesting a shift. You are not able to edit the break time after posting the shift until after when you’re completing your Shift Report. The break time automatically populates on the Clinician and Facility Shift Reports. Clinicians can edit the reported break time, but they will receive a pop-up warning if they report less than the posted break time. Facility users will also receive a warning if the break was less than the posted required break, and you can correct any discrepancies on your Facility Shift Report. As mentioned above, break time is unpaid, so it won’t be calculated in the total pay when Shift Reports are submitted.
