Question Hightlight

What benefits does Davin Healthcare offer?

Travel Nursing

A travel nurse is a contracted employee who travels to various facilities to work but is employed by Davin Healthcare.

Travel nurses enjoy flexible assignments and the opportunity to work in diverse locations across the United States.

This varies case by case, but on average, from the date of application to the first day of the contract is 30 days.

  • Yes, taxes are paid on the hourly rate.
  • Travel stipends paid to qualified individuals are not considered taxable income.
  • We would always advise you to speak with an Accountant/CPA concerning any tax questions.
  • Davin Healthcare caregivers are not contractors, they are W-2 employees.

The travel stipend covers:

  • Lodging
  • Meals
  • Incidentals

Unfortunately, to be a travel nurse, we require that you have at least one year of experience in your relevant specialty. We do encourage that you stay in touch and let us know when you have the required experience so we can help you with your travel nursing journey.

Each state has different requirements for nursing licenses. To learn more about how each state works, visit: https://www.nursinglicensure.org/articles/rn-licensing.html

Walk-through states allow a nurse to be issued a temporary license within one hour to one day's time.

This temporary license is used to practice nursing while awaiting permanent licensure to be processed.

These temporary licenses obtained in walk-through states are usually valid for 30 days to six months depending on the state issuing the license.

Davin Healthcare would never want to separate you from your family and/or pets.

Just make sure that when you're planning to travel, that you look for "pet-friendly" lodging.

Per-Diem Nursing

Per diem nursing gives you the ability to choose how many hours you work per week and a flexible schedule.

The hours are not guaranteed so there is a possibility your shift gets canceled although that does not happen often. A contract is full-time (36 or 40 hrs per week depending on the specialty) and the hours are guaranteed for each week in which you work, subject to limited exceptions.

Flexibility defines what per-diem nursing is when you work for Davin Healthcare.

You can be credentialled to work at more than one facility without making a major commitment. You choose your hours, shifts and make your own schedule.

Once you build a rapport with the unit and staffing office, you can have direct contact to sign up for shifts and plan your schedule for the week or month ahead.

If you are the type of person who likes to take it one day at a time, you can call to find out availability and pick up a shift the same day/night. Some nurses like per-diem work because of the work-life balance it offers, while others like it because it allows them to gain experience at various hospitals.

You are required to work 24 hours per month, which can be made up of 4, 8, or 12-hour shifts depending on your preference and facility needs.

Per diem nurses are able to participate in our 401k program with an employer match after 90 days of employment regardless of hours worked.

When per diem nurses work an average of 30 hours per week they become eligible for full-time benefits which include health insurance, accrued paid time off, tuition and certification reimbursements, free access to United Concierge telemedicine, 401(k) program, and more.

Apply above and you will receive a call from our recruiting team who will walk you through the steps and process. If you have references who respond right away, you can be onboarded within days of applying and start picking up shifts within a few weeks.
