DukeShift allows managers/scheduling teams to post open shifts in the schedule. Non-Exempt staff who are eligible and qualified can use the system to offer to fill the open shift. The department scheduling team determines to whom to award their shifts. For departments that are using the API Scheduling system, awarded shifts will show on the API Time Card and Monthly View Screen for the employee.
To be eligible the employee must
have the permission of their home manager to use the system
have completed orientation on their home unit
be free of written warnings
choose a shift that matches the job code of their primary job
if you want to pick up shifts in a job code that differs from your primary job code, you must be set up as a Secondary Employee
Can not be an employee in Company 10 (PDC, School of Nursing, DCRI, or university)
To be qualified the employee must
Be oriented to the facility and scope of practice
Hold required licenses
Have computer and door access to the area
Could be floated to that area as part of daily operations

As of Monday, August 16th, DukeShift has a new feature to help schedulers manage all the requests to work. If awarded a shift, you will have 72 hours to respond the award offer. If you have not accepted or declined the shift within 72 hours, the shift will automatically be retracted and reopened for others to request.
- My DukeShift is considered a regular work shift. If I am tardy or call out, the occurrences will be treated in accordance of the Availability for Work policy. A DukeShift is an agreement between myself and the department where I picked up the shift – any concerns, call outs, schedule changes, etc. should be directed to the department where I picked up the shift.
- I will adhere to the Staffing policy. I will not schedule myself for:
- more than 12 hours in a row
- more than four, 12 hour shifts in a row
- more than seven, 8 hour shifts in a row
- at least 8 hours between shifts
- no more than 60 hours in a 7 day period
- I will verify and maintain my email address and phone number under My Profile in b4health. I understand that the phone number is needed in case I am cancelled for my awarded DukeShift.
- Note: Managers may remove an employee’s privilege to use DukeShift. Possible reasons include but are not limited to:
- Failure to adhere to DukeShift policies and procedures
- Allowing DukeShift awarded work shifts to interfere with my staffing obligations on my home unit
- Being placed under corrective action
