Convergence Medical Staffing provides nationwide career opportunities for RN's, LPN's, OT's, PT's, COTA's, PTA's, MT's, MLT's, Cath Lab Tech's, Surgical Techs, and a host of other allied health modalities.

They are medium sized company for a reason. Instead of placing volumes of nurses and other professionals all over the place, they keep their relationships personal. There are limitations on the number of travelers that their recruiters work with, ensuring dedication to the traveler’s experience on each and every assignment. Each of their travelers have access to speak with The Managing Director at any time should they feel the need. They are open to constructive criticism and solve all issues TOGETHER with the traveler. No results are satisfying to anyone if both aren’t involved in the resolution.

Convergence does have a clinical liaison that is available during business hours by email and phone. After hours, she is available by email.  They are Joint Commission Certified. At this time, they do not belong to NATHO but plan on doing so by the end of 2016.

If there are recruiter/traveler issues, the Managing Director will have a conversation with the traveler and create the win/win. In some cases the traveler is reassigned to another recruiter. In other cases, a resolution is reached to create a better working relationship (this included counseling the recruiter and monitoring for compliance). In other instances, the Managing Director will work directly with the traveler to ensure traveler satisfaction.

Convergence provides Blue Cross/Blue Shield – Major medical and dental to their travelers. They do not offer vision insurance because there are no satisfactory vision plans that are worthwhile for the cost; however, they did replace vision with a $15,000 life insurance policy where the traveler appoints the beneficiaries of his/her choice.  They do not offer a 401(k) at this time due to a lack of participation from their travelers.

Other benefits include:  24/7 emergency contact with a live person; paid medical benefits that effective day one of employment; weekly pay via direct deposit; travel pay to/from each assignment; license reimbursement; CEU reimbursement, numerous bonus programs (for credentialing to loyalty to referrals); Starting shortly before the summer of 2016, each traveler will receive a AAA Travel Club membership, which entitles them to automobile services throughout the US and discounts for retail, restaurants, other goods/services throughout the US, city by city.

Convergence actually CARES that the traveler’s experience is positive. They support our travelers when there are issues on their assignment (when reasonable… sometimes issues are about preferences, not issues). They have lasting relationships based on career guidance, mutual reliability and dependability, and they are honest in our dealings.

In Conclusion:  All of their recruiters are experienced with travel healthcare professional placement. When they tell you something, you can take it to the bank. If they are wrong, they admit it and if a mistake were to occur related to your contract, they eat it. The traveler will always be in the drivers seat; however, they do require your full cooperation in order to get you what you want. That means they can be strict about you getting your required paperwork in order to get their travelers interviewed and for credentialing prior to a start date. It’s necessary to treat both sets of information urgently in order to secure their travelers the best assignments.
