SquadBuilders Spotlight: Travel Nursing Division

As I mentioned in last week’s blog, there has been an unprecedented demand in the U.S. healthcare industry, thanks to longer life expectancy and an aging Baby Boomer population. In fact, Registered Nurses are among the top 10 occupations with the largest job growth, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

News like this always reminds me that, thanks to my grandparents’ foresight nearly 30 years ago, SquadBuilders is perfectly positioned to make the best matches between healthcare providers and our excellent travel nursing staff. Since the mid-1980s, we have built up long-standing, trusted relationships with our clients.

Today, we remain committed to our nurses, helping guide them in their career path. Our first-class Travel Nursing Division works with each nurse to guide you in your individual career path. There’s no one-size fits all formula at SquadBuilders, and each candidate is matched to the perfect opportunity.

With our individualized placement services come many significant benefits to our nurses. Not only do we provide flexible scheduling, credential reimbursements, premium hospital placement and some of the highest pay rates in the industry; we also have nurse recruiters who have a deep understanding of our nurses’ needs. Again, this leads to SquadBuilders’ ability to create the best matches between our clients and nurses. I’ve said this many times before, but I’ll say it again: We believe that mutually inclusive relationships produce mutually beneficial outcomes. That’s why we take care of our nurses.

We are currently reading a book, "The St. Bernard Principle."  I am gearing the Travel team towards specialization.  We started 2 new nurse recruiters today and plan to have each of them recruit a very specific set of skill sets producing specialized recruiters.  I truly believe candidates and customers alike will recognize the value in working with a recruiter that specializes in supplying specific skill sets. 

On the flip side, all the recruiter's energies will be laser focused on building a very specific pipeline.  The approach is different from most our competitors.  They supply the same types of folks as us, but each recruiter typically recruits all forms of nurses.  Of course at the end of the day....what will make this a successful approach?  We must deliver! And we will!

What to expect at SquadBuilders?

Job Time Frame: Most of our clients are looking for 13-26 week assignments, many with options to extend, but we also have smaller assignments as short as 4 weeks.

On the Job Assistance: Our travel nurses have 24 x 7 x 365 accessibility to our highly trained staffing coordinators, our nurses are never left to "fend for themselves" during an assignment. You will be assigned to a SquadBuilders team that includes a highly skilled recruiter, staffing coordinators, compliance coordinators and a compensation team. Your team will be here to support you!

Compensation: We are proud to provide some of the highest pay rates in the industry. Some rates range as high as $60/hr ($90/hr for OT). Some nurses can even take advantage of tax-saving per diems like meals, travel and lodging accommodations.

I encourage you to search our open positions and find the right fit for you. If you think you’ve got what it takes to #JoinTheSquad, please contact us!  We’re here to help you find that win-win! Good luck!
