uPaged – The Gig is Up!
The founder of uPaged, Zara Lord is an 8th year registered nurse, specialised in Intensive Care. Having experienced the current model of agency nursing from both the nurse and institutional side, she knew there had to be a better way. Having harnessed technology, her deep industry knowledge/experience and her network she has single handedly built a nursing digital marketplace which is the first of its kind in Australia.
uPaged was born of an idea that there had to be a better way for great nurses to get great nursing jobs when they want; and for quality healthcare organisations to find quality casual nurses quickly. Gig work has been around for decades in healthcare, however, the tech that had raised the bar for casual work in other industries had failed to make it to nursing. Until now.
Join us in listening to Zara’s story of how she identified a need in the market and used her passion for nursing to improve the Health system with uPaged.
