Your first day as an agency nurse is an important milestone in your career journey, and we want to ensure that it is a smooth and hassle-free experience. In this final article of our "Unlocking Opportunities" series, we will guide you through what to expect on your first day, provide tips for getting acquainted with your new colleagues, and share essential information to help you settle in seamlessly.


Welcoming you to Nutrix

At Nutrix Personnel, we extend a warm welcome to all nurses joining our team. We are delighted to have you on board and pleased to have you as part of our dedicated and compassionate healthcare community. As a valued member of the Nutrix team, we are committed to providing you with a supportive and inclusive work environment, where your skills, expertise, and contributions are highly valued. We believe in fostering a culture of collaboration, professionalism, and continuous growth. Rest assured that we are here to support you every step of the way as you embark on your new career with Nutrix.


Receiving your uniform and ID badge

We ensure that our nurses receive their uniform and ID badge conveniently through the mail. Once you have completed the necessary compliance requirements, our dedicated compliance officer will ensure that your uniform and ID badge are promptly dispatched to you. Rest assured that the correct size of the uniform will be sent to you, tailored to your specifications. Additionally, Nutrix Personnel make sure that your ID badge features an up-to-date photo identification, further enhancing its validity and security. Our streamlined process ensures that you can start your assignments confidently, with a professional uniform and a trusted identification badge.


Adjusting to your new surroundings

We understand that starting a new role can be both exciting and overwhelming. To help you settle in, familiarise yourself with the layout of the healthcare facility and locate essential areas such as the staff room, break areas, and restrooms. Ask for a tour if one is not provided, as this will help you feel more at ease in your new environment.

Building relationships with your new colleagues is essential for a positive working experience. Take the opportunity to introduce yourself and engage in conversations with fellow staff. Be open to learning from their experiences and sharing your own expertise. By fostering a friendly and collaborative atmosphere, you can establish a strong support system within your workplace.

In some cases, assignments may involve working in a one-to-one patient setting, where the nurse works independently to deliver personalised care. Regardless of the specific scenario, Nutrix Personnel ensures that nurses have the necessary support and resources to excel in their roles.


Submitting your Online Time Sheet

At Nutrix Personnel, we prioritise efficiency and accuracy when it comes to timesheet submission. We have worked tirelessly to create a process where nurses can easily submit their timesheets without any delays. As soon as you complete your first shift, we encourage you to promptly fill out the online timesheet available on the Nutrix Personnel website. This immediate submission allows us to process your timesheet quickly and efficiently, ensuring timely payment for your work.

Additionally, submitting your timesheet promptly helps us confirm your future availability, allowing us to quickly match you with suitable assignments. We value your time and commitment, and our user-friendly online platform makes the timesheet submission process hassle-free, providing you with a straightforward experience as you continue your journey with Nutrix Personnel.
