After your interview, if there is an interest, you will be authorized by the employer which will then allow you to pick up shifts.

Claim Shifts

Once authorized by any employer, through the Overture Lifestyle App, you will have access to open shift opportunities that match your experience and credentials.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How does the OvertureXL process work?

    OvertureXL is a HIPAA compliant cloud-hosted system and a fully supported process that employers can use to ensure that they have proper nursing coverage for all their future shifts.

    We are not a temp or per diem agency, and as a matter of fact, we are not any type of agency at all.

    We contract with healthcare employers of all sizes and provide them with the OvertureXL system and fully supported process. OvertureXL provides the candidate marketing and country-wide search for qualified nursing individuals and then has candidates create their profiles inside the OvertureXL system.

    Once your profile is completed, there is an initial review done by OvertureXL to ensure that you are qualified and are represented properly by your profile. Then, we approve the profile, which puts you in front of employers for review.

    All of this takes place in our system.

    When employers have an interest in a qualified candidate, they can indicate such in the system and the system then informs you by email and text that there is an OvertureXL employer interested in you. Shortly after that, you will receive another communication from the employer to arrange an interview. The interview may be completed by phone or in person, which is up to each individual employer as to how they wish to proceed. If the interview goes well, you are "authorized" by the employer, which allows you to download the OvertureXL App. You can be authorized by numerous facilities, which gives you a larger choice as to what facilities to work with and what shifts to claim. From that point forward, you will be instantly notified of open shifts posted by employers which have authorized you. You can claim open shifts at your discretion through the App. The App maintains your schedule and allows you to check in and check out for your shifts. Once a shift is completed, that shift occurrence goes into an approval cycle with the employer. We target that time period to be no longer than 24 hours. Once the approval occurs, if it is less than 1 hour prior to the close of your bank, you will be paid that same day. If you are using an App for payment such as PayPal, Venmo, etc., then payment will happen the same day regardless of the time of shift completion. Candidates will be notified when payments are made.

    Because of the nursing shortage in the U.S., temp agencies and per diem agencies are billing healthcare employers at a very large hourly rate upcharge. We do not believe that a fair share of that upcharge is being given to the nurses. OvertureXL changes that paradigm by paying our nurses at a higher rate, with the lowest end being $70 per hour and the highest end reaching $125+ per hour, depending on the position. We also do not overcharge our employers for our service. The result is a win-win for the nurse and the employer.

    In particular, you can choose the locations you wish to work at, the shifts you wish to work, and you can manage your life-style and work-style balance much more seamlessly. Being paid with a fast turnaround is an advantage as well.

    Employers have specific needs for nurses filling their shifts. When they create opportunities, they are indicating what criteria and qualifications are required for that shift. The decision as to which candidates they express interest in and ultimately authorize, rests in their hands. OvertureXL is the system and the process that they use to cover nursing shifts. OvertureXL does not participate in the decision-making as to which candidates get an interest notification or interview. OvertureXL cannot indicate what the time frame is for the employer to review, express interest, interview, and provide authorization - It is entirely up to their process and individual needs.

    Our employers can range from large multi-site campus-based hospital systems, individual hospital systems, medical centers, ASC's, nursing homes, and any healthcare employer who employs nurses.

    We suggest that you create your profile in OvertureXL’s system, so you can at least have the opportunity to be seen by our healthcare employers. There is no cost to you and there is no obligation to accept an interview from an employer.

    There are many employers and many open shifts given the current nursing shortage in the U.S. We do not anticipate the nursing shortage to be relieved any time soon, as there are more nurses leaving the field than there are coming in.

    OvertureXL provides the best solution for both the nurse and the employer with our system, supported procedures, and the payrates and costs involved for the nurses and the employers.

  • How do I create my profile?

    Go to the "Candidates Start Here" section of the OvertureXL site and simply click on a nursing level which is most appropriate for your experience, education, and certifications. The system will then guide you through every step of the process.

  • Can I change my Profile content?

    Yes, just simply go the profile builder section and edit the profile.

  • How do I know if an employer is interested in me?

    Employers who are OvertureXL clients have numerous methods at their disposal to search for and find candidates that have the skill sets and experience they are looking for. Once your profile is complete, participating employers that are interested in you will indicate their interest through their employer portal. This will trigger updates for you through the program and allow the employer to communicate with you, set up an interview, and authorize you as an individual that will see their open shift coverage needs. When an employer has the need to fill a shift, you will come up as an authorized match for that shift if you fit the requirements. You will be notified of the open shift on the OvertureXL App, which allows you to review mutual need and claim that shift.

  • What does the OvertureXL GPS enabled dashboard do?

    As the start time of your shift gets closer, the App Dashboard will track your location and your estimated time of arrival to the employer. This allows the employer to know in advance if you will be on time for the start of the shift.

  • What does the OvertureXL performance rating indicator mean?

    Participating employers can rate your shift performance up to a 5-star rating. You will see your cumulative ratings for all shifts that have been completed and you will be able to have discussions with your employers if you have questions. It’s very simple.

  • If I claim a shift and I have to cancel it, how do I do that?

    The App allows you to easily cancel a shift that you have claimed. Cancelling claimed shifts may affect your rating scores, based on how much advanced notice that you give. When you cancel a shift, that shift automatically reopens for others to claim.

  • How does OvertureXL know when I checked in for my shift and when I checked out for my shift?

    The App allows you to check in and check out with the click of a button. Early check-in is acceptable within the threshold that the employer sets. Early check-in limits allow for your safe arrival and the ability to comfortably prepare and arrive to your claimed shift position. When your shift is complete, you will simply check out in the App and that completed shift will proceed immediately to the approval stage with the employer.

  • How do I get paid for the shift work I do?

    Once you have completed your shift and you have indicated so in the App, the completion immediately triggers the approval cycle with the employers' predetermined approval individuals. Both OvertureXL and our authorized candidates desire a fast shift approval so that you can be paid quickly. All approvals that occur 1 hour prior to the close of your banks’ business day will occur the same day. If you are using other money transfer systems such as PayPal, Venmo, Gusto, etc., the payment transaction will occur within 1 -2 hours through that specific application. This process is very transparent to our candidates using the App.

  • Who can see the activity that is happening with OvertureXL?

    You, the Employer, and OvertureXL can see everything. The OvertureXL team is responsible for the overall smooth operation of every aspect of the system. Our responsibility is simple: Ensure the system is functioning properly 24/7 and that transactions are completed by candidates and employers in a timely manner so that everyone is satisfied with the outcome.
