uPaged is not a nursing agency, nor is it a recruitment agency.
uPaged is an online platform (also called a workforce marketplace) that connects nurses directly to hospitals - removing the traditional nursing agency middle-man - and in the process, empowering both sides to take control of the process.
Typically, the casual employment relationship has been managed by recruitment agencies (or nursing agencies) who charge hospitals hefty commissions and choose which shifts you should be offered. uPaged eliminates this middle-man, and by doing so it saves employers money, allowing them to pay you more and cancel you less.
Even though the hospitals become your employer, you choose the shifts and rate of pay you want.
