We have a mission to help clients provide exceptional patient care, and that starts with the nursing professionals we employ in facilities across the United States.

Due to our connections with many healthcare employers, we’re always looking for nursing referrals that will help us find other motivated and skilled workers to join our team. If you help us find them, you could earn a bonus of up to $750*!

Azcar, CareerStaff CNA, smiling at the camera

I have referred a friend who is now an aid in my building as well as another friend who is about to take her LPN exam. The scheduling flexibility is key as it works well around our family lives. The pay allows me to provide better for my family. The pay I make now is nowhere what I’ve been making previously.
