The U.S. healthcare industry grapples with a shortage of nursing staff that is negatively affecting the quality of healthcare services in the country. On the other hand, qualified nurses burdened with family responsibilities fail to find the right opportunities that fit their schedule and give them a perfect work-life balance.

We envisioned creating a common digital platform that would help bridge the gap connecting hospitals and nurses. Caregigs is a top-notch app that helps nurses find nursing gigs that suit their schedules. The app also offers part-time, contract, and full-time nursing job opportunities for qualified nurses in their preferred locations. We have partnered with some of the country's top hospitals helping them hire experienced nursing staff as well as offer nurses the opportunity to work in diverse healthcare settings and specialties.

This case study dives into our development approach and technologies used to build a robust app for nurses to find their dream jobs.

Project Overview

The platform stands out as a premier solution for nursing professionals looking for per-diem shifts, contract assignments, and home health opportunities. It offers an array of features designed to take control of work schedules, financial futures, and career paths without the constraints of traditional employment. For healthcare facilities, it provides an AI-powered matching and pricing engine that ensures staffing solutions are fast, flexible, and cost-effective.

Our team adopted a holistic approach focused on building a user-friendly app making it easier for nurses to explore opportunities suitable to their daily routine. We delegated a team of skilled developers, programmers, and project managers to build a highly functional app that simplifies job search for nurses bringing high-paying opportunities to their fingertips.
