Staffing is a small to medium company that places RNs nationwide.

Their model is centered around the “nurse first” mentality. They understand that their RNs are the face of Rise and represent their company while on contract. Their recruiters commission structure is NOT based on margins like a majority of travel companies within the travel nursing industry. It’s based on the number of hours a RN works. In short, it promotes longevity and retention vs. that “one time transaction” where the RN feels like they are being nickled and dimed. They set very competitive pay packages at the company level so the recruiter focus can be on customer service. Miles the recruiter manager states, “Having recruited with Rise for 5 years, I found myself building long lasting relationships which is what our company feels is the cornerstone to our success. We don’t sacrifice quality for quantity.”

Rise Medical Staffing does have a clinical nurse liaison that is available 24 hours a day.  They are a Joint Commission certified company that is looking into belonging to NATHO.

About their recruiter program, Miles states, “As a Recruiter you need to be adaptable. To start, we hire Recruiters that can relate to a large audience and can connect with a variety of individuals. If we find any reoccurring issues with a particular Recruiter (not getting along with RNs, trust issues, etc.) it’s a clear sign that the Recruiter isn’t a good fit for Rise. However, in the rare occasion that an RN feels their Recruiter simply isn’t a good fit, we would redirect the RN to a different Recruiter that best matches what they are looking for. We have every RN complete a survey where the RN can voice their opinion about their Recruiter and other departments (QA, Payroll, Benefits) alike. We always take this feedback serious and will follow up with the RN to ensure we are making changes in areas that need improvement.”

Medical insurance is provided through Aetna with offerings of 3 different plans.  Vision and Dental insurance is provided by Cypress Insurance.  They also provide a 401K with company matching up to 4%.  

Other benefits include:  

  • Competitive wages for local and travel positions all across the U.S.
  • Extensive Medical, Dental, Vision Plans
  • 401k Retirement Savings Account
  • Free Housing of Tax-Free Stipend – Private, fully furnished, utilities, cable, etc
  • $500 Travel Allowance
  • Tax Advantage Program
  • Best Referral Program: Refer & Earn
  • Bonuses, promotions, and more!

I asked Miles, “What makes your company more than just another travel company?”  He replied, “Perhaps it sounds cliche, but I think it’s all about the people. We started as a very small company and our survival (especially during the recession) was based around people who care about what they do. We want to continue to separate ourselves from the pack by pushing for superior customer service. It helps that our company has some of the most competitive pay packages and benefits in the industry. However, it’s essential that each employee shares and exhibits our culture and values.  Without the right people, we’d be “just another” travel company.

Our recruiters must have the following Rise Medical Staffing Culture:

  • Excellence
  • Integrity
  • Collaboration
  • Fun.  

This results in Rise Medical Staffing Values:  

  • Employees & Clients First
  • Relationships Matter
  • Demand Excellence
  • Be open, honest and constructive
  • Act like an owner.
