Review a Recruiter

Given the anticipated staffing shortages over the next ten years, the work of healthcare staffing has never been more important. Specifically, the Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates 500,000 nurses to retire over the next few years, as well as a shortage of up to 50,000 doctors by 2032. 

Whether placing travel nurses, hospital staff, or other professionals in the industry, healthcare staffing firms will continue to play a major role in keeping people safe and healthy in the future.

Specifically, the firms that provide exceptional candidate and client experiences, proactively seek feedback throughout the whole process, and take both positive and negative feedback to heart—these are the staffing firms that stand out. 

Below is our list of the top healthcare staffing firms for the first half of 2022. These firms made the cut because they’ve exhibited the following characteristics:

  • Prioritized candidate and client experience across the organization
  • Instituted practices to measure and analyze the candidate experience

He has been totally transparent with me about postings, facilities, pay etc. He has taken the time to get to know me, to really understand what my short, and long term goals are and he always has my back. He has gone above and beyond to ensure my happiness over everything, has never pressured me into a contract, and I know he never would. I honestly feel that he wants for me, what I want for me, and it has never once felt like it was about his bottom line. When I had questions about a rate drop, he was forthcoming and honest, when I asked about getting my EMSA for California, we had it within 24hrs, when I tell him I do or don’t want to push for a certain contract, he supports that…He has definitely been my travel nursing wing man, always looking out for my best interests, giving me a dose of reality when required, and supporting my gigantic goals. I plan to keep him on board as long as possible.”
