Bridging the Gap

With GigWorx it's never been easier to pick up rewarding healthcare shifts. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) looking to leave a permanent position for per diem nursing work, are experiencing burnout and looking to mix things up a bit with other gigs, or want to get certified as a nursing assistant and find rewarding healthcare gigs in the future, GigWorx offers solutions for all three.

Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) Shifts

GigWorx has offered shifts and gigs in a variety of fields for a while, including: light industrial, construction and hospitality industries. Bit did you know that GigWorx Denver now has per diem CNA shifts available backed by a company with over 20 years of health care staffing experience? If you are a CNA and want to take control of your own schedule to determine when, where and how long you work, download the GigWorx app.

Getting started working CNA shifts is easy. Just look at out our How to Get Started page. Per Diem CNAs are in high demand since the onset of COVID-19 and there is no signs of the need slowing down. You can pick up and work as many shifts as you want. When you work CNA shifts, the demands and skills required are typically consistent from gig to gig, bringing you a sense of stability and confidence with each new gig. However, because environments change, many CNAs say every day is different because they meet new people and teams, and learn new systems and processes. You also acquire new skills which helps build up your resume. This can be especially helpful if you want to transition into a new field or specialty within the healthcare industry.

Other CNAs say that being able to browse and select the shifts they want each day has created a better life/work balance and helped control burnout. It’s easier to make time for family and friends or simply rest if needed.

Not certified? If you aren’t a CNA yet and would like to learn more, you can sign up for classes and then join the GigWorx healthcare team when you have that certification under your belt!

CNAs Looking for Non-CNA Gigs

Most CNAs chose the line of work they do because they are compassionate and want to make a difference in their patients’ lives. As rewarding as helping other people can be, CNA work can also be very demanding. Between the inflexible hours and notorious understaffing, burnout affects even the most dedicated CNAs.

Sometimes, you just need a break. That’s why lots of CNAs work gigs in other industries like housekeeping, hospitality, manufacturing, fulfillment tech, and more. While working these gigs, you won’t be saving a life or helping to deliver a baby, but you will still need to use your compassion and empathy skills to help people—just in a much less critical way—and still be able to pay the bills.

Here are the top 10 gig economy gigs that allow you to continue serving people, make deep personal connections, and earn money. Working other gigs doesn’t mean you’re ready to leave the healthcare field entirely, you just need a breath of fresh air to clear the mind.
