This rate kicks in when you physically work over 40 hours in one work week.
The work week at these hospitals are Sunday – Saturday. This is mostly just important for calculating overtime rates. When you work over 40 hours in one work week, the next hours will kick into overtime (1.5x the rate). So if you work over 40 hours inside of a Sunday – to Saturday, you get overtime.
For this contract, you will most likely get 20 hours at the overtime rate if the strike lasts the full week. If you work less than 60 hours in a week you do still have the guarantee to get paid for 60 hours, but the hours you do not actually physically work will be paid at the regular hour rate.

If you work 52 hours & you have a guarantee of 60 hours:
Sometimes between mid-June to mid-July and will likely last one week but could be open-ended where you have the chance to extend.
Nurse associations give a 10-day notice to the hospital when they are going to strike, so the hospital has some time to fill all the positions (so patients stay safe during strike negotiations).
It is very likely the strike will happen mid-June or the start of July. As soon as we get the notice, we will be contacting you and booking flights. You will arrive 2-3 days before the strike for orientation.
We have less overhead costs & we take less profits because we are just awesome like that. The owner (Laura) is a healthcare worker herself. She decided to run Nomadicare to be very nurse centric and run the business on smaller margins to pay the nurse more.
In return, she selects the best nurses to work with and expects them to represent Nomadicare well as they work across the country! She loves the culture and the reputation Nomadicare has built over the last 7 years of being the kindest company in the industry. The nurses and healthcare workers that get selected by Nomadicare are amazing and hospitals love to work with them! And that deserves higher pay!
One year of experience in your specialty within the last three years. Strike work in the past is a perk but not required!

You do not need one to apply, but you will need one if you’re accepted. You can apply and we should know within a week if you are selected. At that point, we will apply for the license to keep your spot. The license takes a few weeks to process, so we want to get that done right away.
