Benefits of being an agency nurse

News , Nursing , Walsall , Wolverhampton

At Secure Healthcare Solutions we often get permanent registered nurses who contact us looking to move forward with our agency. Most of the time nurses can be a little hesitant about coming into an agency nurse role. Stepping away from the familiarity and security of a permanent position can put a lot of registered nurses off but this shouldn’t.

One of the benefits of being an agency nurse is that when you’re registered the pay rates are often better. Hourly rates are higher in comparison to permanent bank staff members. This is normally 66% more than bank staff which is considerably higher.

Secondly, bank holidays can be higher especially if you are a registered nurse like working long days making your earnings incredibly higher. But these can be on a last-minute basis. Clients often compensate agency nurses for this and the possibility for this and that a shift may be canceled. Hence why there are a lot of registered nurses tending to work with an agency such as Secure Healthcare.

Sometimes it doesn’t always go to plan. Has an agency canceled on you last minute? If you are happy working days and nights and weekends and don’t matter if you work in different locations then being a flexible agency nurse is for you!

You can work with different trusts with whoever you want if you don’t like working in one environment.

Working as an agency nurse it is known that the work-life balance is immaculate which is very important, where you can fit your family and lifestyle around your work.

As an agency nurse, you simply conduct your shift and then go home after your handover, there is less stress being put on rather than a bank staff permanent nurse.

This is due to bank nurses generally getting worked to the point of getting burnt, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. In comparison as an agency nurse, the pressure is extremely less.

As an agency registered nurse, there is no additional stress or workload that comes with being a permanent member of staff working directly for trust, which may include doing external admin tasks such as stock filling, emailing the CCG, and dealing with complaints.
Another key benefit of working as an agency nurse is that you get more flexible hours, you can work long days, short days, nights, and weekends whenever you want to work around your home lifestyle.

Working In different environments instead of one environment will let you socialize more with other people not just one set of a team. Another reason why Registered nurses tend to work with agencies instead of permanent bank staff.
