Finding a trustworthy healthcare staffing agency is key to being successful as a healthcare traveler. With so many options, it can be overwhelming to know who to trust and what the right fit is for you. Here are our tips for recognizing a good staffing agency when you see one.
Plenty of assignment options
As a traveler, you probably have some goals in mind when it comes to picking your assignments. Maybe you want to expand your skillset to grow your career. Or maybe you have a bucket list of travel destinations you want to explore!
No matter your travel goals, it’s important that your agency has plenty of jobs and locations to choose from, so you’re more likely to find an assignment that fits your goals and excites you.

A great agency is synonymous with great recruiters. Your relationship with your recruiter plays a big part in the success of your travel career, so finding a recruiter who is communicative and understands your needs is important.
As a healthcare traveler, you should be treated well by your recruiter. They should be responsive, following up consistently throughout your assignment and making sure you’re set up for success.
Your recruiter should also understand your needs and wants as a traveler. If you don’t feel heard, it might not be the right agency for you.

With a great agency, you should never worry if they have all the necessary paperwork or if documents will be submitted to facilities on time. All of this should be organized and worry-free for you as the traveler.
Perhaps most importantly, the best agencies put their travelers first. They know that whatever is best for travelers is truly what's best for agencies, and they keep that in mind throughout every step of the traveler journey.
