At Solutions Nursing, we advocate a personal approach. We want to know our nurses so we can place them in places suitable for them. We prefer to refuse a replacement than to send a nurse that is not ready for the required job. This is not doing anyone a favour: not the nurse, not the patient, not the health organization not us. We are so confident in our nurses that we offer a total guarantee to the health organizations asking for our services. This guarantee allows them to be certain that we are always sending a competent person and a person capable of doing the job. If, for one reason or another, a nurse does not do the job, we will replace him (her) at no extra cost by paying the plane ticket of the replacing nurse and we will not charge for the days he/she was on the job.
Throughout your replacement, we support you. Whether it be a technical, a medical or a psychological problem, you can always call us and someone will always be there to lend an attentive ear. A 24 hours a day, 365 days a year phone service is available to you to contact us in case of emergency.
Flexibility and Common Sense
Even if the majority of our nurses have a contract with us, several are still working for us after several years. They have confidence in us and know that we can adapt ourselves to their situation. If you have a problem to respect your contract, you only need to submit your problem and we will try to find solutions to resolve it.
It is normal to feel insecure when starting in a new place, this is why we created Solutions Recrues: we try our best to have you arrive 3 days early so that you will be in surplus in the work team to get yourself familiar with this new job in the expanded role. Your 3 first days in a clinic will not be charged to the health organization but you will get paid. Let us mention that this policy applies only to your first experience in a clinic since the most difficult part is the evaluation of a patient and all the clinics run virtually the same way.
At the end of each of your assignments, a quality control is sent to the person responsible where you did your replacement. This control allows us to identify your strengths and your weaknesses, and therefore do a follow-up with the nurse for him(her) to work on the areas of improvement.
The average duration of the replacements in clinics, Nordic hospitals and in community health is between 4 to 6 weeks at a time. There are shorter replacements, 2 to 3 weeks, but they are often last-minute replacements and are, in most cases, given to nurses who have already worked in the community in question. A nurse who never worked in the expanded role must therefore expect to leave for a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks at a time, at least for the first 6 to 12 months. In the mines, the replacements are for 1 to 3 weeks.
The replacement demands are usually received 2 weeks before the departure date, rarely sooner. There are also last-minute demands, from 24 to 48 hours from departure.
Each replacement demand received is offered to all the nurses that gave their availability for that period. We then submit the candidacies of the ones interested in this replacement. The customer then chooses the candidate.
Before you departure, you will receive a document on the community containing helpfull information on this community. Everything will be set to make things easier for you , you will only need to do your packing!
