As an hStream-integrated app, NurseGrid Manager can be accessed by HealthStream customers, providing them with innovative shift-filling technology while connecting to the hundreds of thousands of nursing professionals, hospitals, and agencies that form the NurseGrid network.
NurseGrid Mobile, the industry's most popular calendar app with over one million downloads, helps nurses organize their schedules, request changes, and share with colleagues. Nurses who opt to use NurseGrid Mobile can easily integrate the app with HealthStream ePortfolio™, which would allow them to store and manage their credentials and continuing education credits on a single, convenient mobile platform.
