12-Week Nursing Assignments
Enjoy the freedom and compensation of a traveling nurse assignment without the traveling! We’re seeking to fill multiple positions near you. Join our 12-week nursing assignment program.
As part of a 12-week temporary nurse assignment, you will enjoy a higher hourly pay than you would working full-time — and the benefits staffing agencies don’t offer.
Your 12-week assignment allows you the freedom to enjoy breaks throughout the year. And if you’re considering full-time employment, a 12-week assignment gives you the opportunity to see if our nursing practice and environment are right for you. If they are, you’re welcome to apply for full-time work or another 12-week assignment.
Here are some of the advantages that make us unique:
Superior pay PLUS benefits — including health insurance!
Accredited nurse residency program
High number of Beacon units
Incredible professional development and growth opportunities
Support for Nursing Professional Specialty Certification
