Before you are able to start working at a facility in New York you must complete an Orientation at the desired facility. Please note that the Facility Orientations vary for each facility. Note that only the first day of Orientation will be displayed in the Shift Feed. Once, an Orientation shift is claimed in the App, our NY Staffing Coordinator will reach out to confirm your availability for the entire Orientation. These Orientations are paid - please note the rate in the App at the time of claim.

If you would like to schedule an appointment with a New York ShifMed Consultant please use the following link:

In your shift feed you want to look for the "Orientation" symbol next to the shift.
