Why do Facilities choose CNSA Nurses?

The simple answer is because they don’t have enough nurses to work the necessary shifts! Some reasons why facilities are short staffed include:

  • Vacations
  • Medical leaves
  • FMLA leaves
  • Staff resignations
  • Staff termination
  • Maternity/Paternity leaves
