Our Benefits.

Founded by a former travel nurse, we’ve been in the industry and know what nurses need to be successful.


Don’t just take it from us.

"I have been traveling for 7 years and have used several different travel companies. I have repeatedly tried to find the one that meets all my needs but always have had to compromise in one area or another. Nurse First inally ticked all the boxes on my needs list... (1) lots of jobs in my specialty (2) variety of locations all around the country (3) pay details listed on the website (4) day one insurance (5) a company representative that doesn't harass me like a used car salesman.

Most importantly, my paychecks are always on time, always correct, and include reimbursements as promised.

My traveler advocate Lauren is always available and was helpful and understanding when I missed some work due to my sister passing away. Every member of the company that I have dealt with has been fantastic and respond to any questions I have quickly and professionally.

It's been a great experience with Nurse First so far and I expect to continue with them for the foreseeable future." -- Kathleen Tillman, RN
