How Nurses Can Find Financial Freedom

 In Nurses Weekly

While many nursing roles provide job security and competitive pay, some nurses may not feel confident and in control of their personal finances. And stress around finances can only compound the additional stressors you face at work and at home.

Here are some tips to help you save, earn more and finally find financial freedom.

Find Per Diem Side Gigs

Unlike full-time work, per diem nursing gives you the freedom to work where you want, allowing you to explore new units and facilities, which adds new experiences to your resume and gives you higher income potential.

You can apply, browse and pick up shifts all from a mobile app and choose the days, times and facilities that work for you.

Save for Your Future

There are plenty of budgeting strategies and tools you can use, like online banking and budgeting apps, that can help keep you on track to your savings goals, no matter how small or big they are.

Find Free Ways to Destress

Going on a walk, joining a book club, knitting and gardening are all examples of low-cost activities that can help you de-stress and take your mind off of work in a fun and relaxing way. You also might consider wellness apps such as the Calm app or TaskHuman, which provide low-cost alternatives to expensive services like yoga and meditation.

Ask the Experts

Financial experts aren’t only available for the ultra-wealthy. Many employers offer free or discounted access to online financial classes or consultants, who can provide tailored advice to help you manage your finances. For example, TaskHuman can connect you to financial wellness coaching directly from the mobile app.
