Temporary Local Versus Permanent Local Nursing Jobs
Not sure whether you want a temporary or permanent local position? Here’s what you need to know:
Temporary Local Nursing Jobs
As a contract-based nurse, you have a set start and end date. You aren’t stuck at one facility or in one position. You aren’t an employee but an independent contractor. This comes with advantages like:
- Freedom and flexibility to choose your schedule
- Better work-life balance
- Higher salary potential
There are two types of temporary nursing jobs: Local Contract and Per Diem.
- Local Contract: These roles can vary based on the facility and location. Often, they come with a guaranteed set of full-time hours and benefits. Once your contract is complete, you can find your next role (or take a break until you’re ready). Due to the high demand for nursing jobs, it’s easy for most nurses to find their next role when and where they want.
- Per Diem: Per diem roles come with a bit more flexibility. There’s no minimum set of hours or shifts each week. Per diem nurses pick up shifts on an as-needed basis, which is great for those looking for work-life balance or extra money on the side.
Permanent Local Nursing Jobs
This is your standard full-time role. In a permanent position, you’ll work a set amount of hours each week as an employee for the facility. There is no end date. This also comes with perks, like:
- Job security and stability
- Increased opportunity for mentorship and closer relationships
- Opportunity to advance in a specific role or facility
