Fastaff Travel Nursing

More than two decades ago, Fastaff pioneered the practice of Rapid Response travel nursing. Because of our solid reputation with the country’s top facilities, we offer top assignments and premium pay: up to $55 hourly / $75 hourly overtime. Fastaff is one of a few travel nurse agencies that prides itself on being able to provide premium pay. We also offer shorter assignments (4 to 13 weeks) with guaranteed hours. As an established, in-demand staffing agency, we are able to offer our nurses a highly comprehensive benefits package. This includes a 401K; plans for medical, dental, and vision; free educational opportunities; license reimbursement paid travel and housing; plus a perks program.

Our larger vision is to improve the conditions for Healthcare Travelers, hospitals and patients.  The Association identifies issues of concern to nurse travelers, researches solutions and defines standards that foster safe, healthy, and humane work environments.  Universal Implementation of Compact State licensure for nurses and mandated safe staffing ratios are two such important issues that can have a positive impact on working conditions and patient care. As a 501(c)(6) non-profit, the Association and its members are legally allowed to lobby Congress and state legislative bodies on issues and laws that impact our member constituent.
