Untitled designWho is PPR Travel Nursing? We are a dedicated group of forward-thinking individuals who come together to provide an exceptional experience for travel nurses and the facilities that employ them. PPR has been a leading travel nurse company since 1996 and in that time we’ve earned accolades in our industry. We’ve received several awards from being one of the best travel nursing companies in the industry including a Nation’s Best Places to Work award by the Great Places To Work Institute. PPR is one of only two companies who have received this award 13 times and counting. We’ve achieved this status by always putting you first. Check out some of the different ways we’ve been recognized for our work:

We have a history of providing candidate and customer experiences that are unmatched by other travel nurse companies. The experience begins from the first interaction we have with our clients and candidates. Our team of recruiters and account managers are passionate about the work that they do and understand that travel nursing is a business that relies on satisfying the needs of individuals at every level. It’s with this value-oriented perspective that our empathetic minded recruiters begin working with our nurses to find them the right position at the right facility in the location that they most desire. Providing a cohesive solution to their travel nursing conundrum is something our recruiters strive for every day. This premium quality of services is experienced at every level and department of our organization. As a travel nurse you’ll experience this level of service and compassion from payroll, quality management, housing, and human resources. Our high level of service is only matched by the high level of care our travel nurses provide to patients on a daily basis.

Handshake

By dedicating ourselves to quality experience & company culture we’ve built a community of healthcare & HR professionals whose work experience is filled with fun, friendship and adventure. The long-lasting relationships we build with medical facilities and travel nurses endure due to the trust and balance of commitment and professionalism that our team provides.

Heart

Being a great travel nursing company doesn’t come from thinking about our work as a job. We love our nurses and go to great lengths to make sure they feel loved. We try to remind our travel nurses why they became nurses in the first place by treating them with as close to the same level of care and compassion that they bring to the hospital every day.

Family

Our support for nurses extends past providing the right position in the right location. Nurses are people and people have friends and family that are affected by their decision to travel. In an effort to be as hospitable as possible we offer travel options for friends, family and pets as well. Dogs, cats, and birds seem to be the easiest to place. Lions, tigers and bears are a bit more difficult.

But we don’t stop there. Take a look at our benefits offering to get a better idea of how far above and beyond we’re willing to go for our travel nurses. Compare with other travel nursing companies and we think you’ll agree, we’re something special.
