An Urgent Shift is created when a healthcare facility is in need of a healthcare professional on very short-notice. These shifts are usually available closer to the typical start times (AM, PM and NOC) and are paid at a premium rate since you are covering a last-minute vacancy.
Urgent Shifts are valuable to our partnered workplaces, their patients, and workers alike - so everybody wins when you book them.
Book an Urgent Shift
- Open the Clipboard Health app
- Select Find Shifts on the bottom-left of your screen
- If an Urgent Shift is available, you will see a banner at the top of the screen.
- Tap the banner to see the available Urgent Shifts.
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 start time of the shift
Please be prepared to leave immediately after booking an Urgent Shift. If you pick up an Urgent Shift that you have to leave immediately for, CBH will inform the facility that you will be arriving late to the shift, but you are on your way!
When your shift gets cancelled by a facility
Occasionally, a facility 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.
