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.

Sometime around mid November and will likely last one week.
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 November. 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.
One year of experience in your specialty within the last three years. Strike work in the past is a perk but not required!
Strikes are very much a “hit the ground running” job, so please don’t apply without experience and confidence in your clinical skills so we can keep the patients safe. 😊
You’ll fill out a Nomadicare application form and immediately apply for a MN temp license if you haven’t already. After your apply, you’ll get access to your Nomadicare wallet to upload your credentials and your “fly out ready” checklist to track your progress during the credentialing phase.
Yes, you sure do. Apply for a temp MN license right away if you don’t have one. They last for 60 days. If you have an expired temp license, go ahead and get a full license. You won’t be able to work this strike without it.
