What is Nurse Scheduling Software?

Created for nurses working in hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities, nurse scheduling software makes planning rotas and scheduling staff quick and efficient. Draw up schedules, plan travel time, swap shifts, and more with one online platform. 

Key Benefits of Nurse Scheduling Software

Digital employee database

Keep all important employee information in one place with a digital employee database. Store contact information, emergency contacts, location, medical history, and payment information for payroll in a custom filing system that makes sense to you. 

Online scheduling options 

Easily schedule employees for upcoming shifts and share the proposed plan online, so employees always know when they’re needed. Allow nurses to swap shifts amongst themselves without a back-and-forth email chain, and ensure you’re always ready to supply high-quality care.  

Automated shift reminders 

Send text messages and email reminders to employees about upcoming shifts or changes to the schedule, so everyone’s kept in the know. 

Travel time management

For agencies sending nurses to different locations, nurse scheduling software’s travel time management capabilities make planning routes and managing travel time easy. You can even select specific staff based on location and availability for faster response times. 

Why MarketBox is the Best Nurse Scheduling Software

It streamlines scheduling and improves communication 

MarketBox’s in-built scheduling capabilities make it easy to create, edit, and share staff rotas. Changes to shifts can be communicated via email, text, or through the app (available on iOS and Android), and you can even allow nurses to swap shifts among themselves. The software also enables staff to submit time-off requests without all the paperwork. 

It has travel-friendly features for mobile services
