An Urgent Shift is created when a workplace is in need of a worker on very short-notice. These shifts are usually available closer to the typical start times (AM, PM and NOC) and are paid at the premium hourly rate listed within the shift details.
Book an Urgent Shift

- Select Find Shifts on the bottom-left of your screen

What happens if a Workplace cancels your Urgent Shift?
Eligibility for cancellation and sent-home payments will vary based on the workplace's Contract Terms. When a workplace cancels your shift or sends you home after arriving, any applicable payment will be sent directly to your Stripe account.*

*Sent-home requests must be approved by an authorized workplace staff member.
Exception: If you are filling in for another worker's no-call, no-show (NCNS), and the workplace cancels your shift, or sends you home after arriving, we will ensure you receive a fixed cancellation or sent-home payout - even if the workplace's Contract Terms do not offer it.
- If your Urgent Shift is canceled before you arrive at the Workplace, you will receive 2 hours of pay at the Urgent Shift's pay rate.
- If you are sent home after arriving at the workplace, you will receive 4 hours of pay at the Urgent Shift's pay rate.
No Urgent Shifts Available?
If you don't see any Urgent Shifts, this means there are none available for you to book at this time. Try updating your distance preferences for a broader search, or try again at a later time.
Check the shift's start time
Urgent Shifts are requested to fill a recently opened shift on short notice, but a timely arrival is still expected. Before booking an Urgent Shift, check the shift's start-time to ensure you can arrive on time, or as close to the start-time as possible, and be prepared to make your way to the Workplace immediately. Clipboard Health will share your ETA with the Workplace as soon as you are on your way so they can anticipate your arrival time.
Book an Urgent Shift when your shift gets canceled by a Workplace
Occasionally, a Workplace might have to cancel your shift on short notice. You can make this into a positive by booking an Urgent Shift which helps us improve the lives of patients while putting extra money in your pocket!
Note: Canceling your own shift on short-notice, and booking it immediately after as an Urgent Shift may result in penalties per our cancellation rules.
