In addition to our new take-home pay rates for travel nurses, many hospitals offer generous completion and sign-on bonuses that range from $500 to $6,000. For specific pay rate information, and more details on take home pay rates, please contact your recruiter.

How do I choose an assignment?

You will then be presented with available assignments, including details on the pay rate, facility, unit, shifts, location and bonuses.
From that list, you will interview with the facilities of your choice. All interviews are done over the phone. After your interview, you and your recruiter will decide which assignment to take.

What type of housing do you provide?
Our standard housing package consists of a free, private, one-bedroom apartment. In some locations, studio apartments are offered. Our housing department works with only the most reputable apartment communities to provide you with comfortable and attractive housing conveniently located near your assignment. Your accommodation will be in move-in condition upon your arrival, complete with furniture, utilities, and amenities that can include pools, fitness centers and tennis courts. Travelers also have the option to choose their own housing using the generous housing subsidy.
Will you provide accommodation if I travel with my spouse and/or children?
If you are traveling with a travel partner, spouse, significant other and/or a child/children, you must inform your Recruiter as soon as possible so the Company may find appropriate lodging and give authorization to the property for these companions to reside in your unit. Not informing the property of other occupants may result in eviction. Most of our properties require all tenants 18 years and older to complete a criminal background check application. Please be aware that you and your travel partners would be subject to the results of this application. Many states have "Two Hearts Beat" laws limiting residents to two people per bedroom. Be sure you let your Recruiter know your needs. If non-standard housing is required, a co-payment may be necessary to cover the additional costs of housing multiple people. If you are traveling with children, it is your responsibility to arrange for and ensure appropriate child care and/or supervision for any children residing in Company housing. If children are, inappropriately, left alone in the unit, the property may have grounds to evict.
