Competitive Pay

We know your pay rate is one of the main variables you consider when you decide which agency to work for. We keep a close pulse on our local market rates and offer very competitive options for our assignments. We can process your pay to include a per diem if you’re an eligible traveler (Travel Compensation FAQ), and will very clearly break down your compensation structure. You’ll always know what to expect in your check each week, and we’re incredibly accurate when it comes to payroll processing.

RNs are allowed to work up to 48 hours each week so that they can always have overtime hours available. For our travelers, we pay OT at 1.5 x the blended local rate, not your travel rate, so you get full advantage of our policy.

All contract orientation is paid at the full rate, and all of your parking is reimbursed 100%.
