Recruiter (Former Employee) – California – March 12, 2016
This company continually engages in unethical practices between their affiliates, and rewards recruiters who engage in unethical competition with other recruiters. My advice, work for a smaller recruiting agency that doesn't have this corporate mantra that AMN has. You'll be doing more overhead yourself, but you'll be happier in the long run knowing you have your own clients, ones that aren't shared with 3 other recruiters in the same company. I was very disappointed in the culture here.
i enjoyed the traveling and the unexpected and new at each place
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 4, 2016
I was able to fit in and become fluent in each of the emergency and traumas that I was contracted to. I met many great people and found out that I was able to conquer almost anything I got to visit many places and enjoy great new sights I will miss it, but the frequent moving is hard if you have more that a suitcase or two
ICU Travel Nurse (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 19, 2016
At American Mobile Healthcare i was assigned to work as a ICU Nurse at the University of Chicago. A typical day at work began with taking shift report form the previous RN. Next I introduce myself to the patients and their families, and inquire about any patient concerns that need to be addressed. A complete physical assessment is done on all patients, and added to the healthcare record.I attend the unit round at at which time the entire healthcare team is present. I make a oral presentation of all my patients, the Physician and the team evaluates the patient progress and treatment plan. A treatment plan is ordered by the Physician with the input of the nurse, pharmacist, physical therapist, and case manager. Nursing care is administered to the patients as ordered for the entire shift.I administer medications, perform nursing procedures,teach patients and their families, and communicate with ll members of the healthcare team in order to facilitate the patient care plan and treatment. My managers were very thorough and efficient.My co-workers were highly skilled and caring. The hardest part of my job was that being in such a large facility sometimes made timely comminication with all the healthcare team very challenging. The most enjoyable part of my job was the reward of witnessing the healing and recovery of my patients.
Teaching hospital where I learned many new treatments.
Very large hospital, communication was challenging.
RN II (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 6, 2015
Good place to work. Wonderful support staff and good assignments. Travel contracts were well negotiated and clear. Lot of opportunity to see new places and meet new people. They pay for housing and the accommodations were nice.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – October 22, 2015
American Mobile provided me with the rare opportunity to travel. I enjoyed my experience with them, my recruiter was very kind and helpful. Although, I do wish they had been more open about the position they set me up with. I was unaware of how much the company Kaiser Permanente would be floating me to other floors half-way through the day making continued patient care difficult. Other than that they've provided a great experience for me.
They pay for rent and utilities, they paid a decent amount to help me ship my car to california

I totally enjoyed all the assignments received from All-About Staffing! The company management were always personable and helpful. Knowing some of the nurses they used was an added plus; all professional at all times.

Always about patient care and also team work among the staff. This was a very good experience to become a traveler and experience different hospitals but to also travel among the hospital and work every floor.

Typically had a great day a work. My co-workers were very helpful to jump in and answer any question I came across. The management was warm and friendly and did a great job with welcoming me to the milieu. As with any new job I gained skills and learned new behavior management techniques. The hardest part of my job was working night shift and adjusting my body to this new schedule. I enjoyed the most the interactions with different hospital personal.
free meal tickets at times, helpful staff
many staff members it was hard to define which staff carried out certian duties.
Staff Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – California – June 1, 2015
I worked as a travel nurse for a number years. I had taken contracts in level one trauma facilities and or teaching hospitals. I worked within cardio-thoracic ICU's and specialized in critical care of heart related surgeries including heart transplants as well as lung transplants. My typical day would include receiving patients direct from the OR ad would provide all care for my patient up through and after extubation, My coworkers varied as I had different 13 weeks contracts but have found most of my co-workers to be highly skilled and competent. The hardest part of my job was staying on top of my skill set in terms of having the most cutting edge training nationwide. This also happens to be the most enjoyable part of my work. I picked assignments that were tailored to high intensity, high expectations, and were often 1:1 patient to nurse ratio as the level of acuity was at the highest level.
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – February 2, 2015
My overall job experience with American Mobile was positive. However, there were some negative aspects to my contract, like no reimbursement if the facility cancelled me, a dock in pay if I had to call-in, etc.
Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 29, 2015
Always had work for me. My husband had retied and the kids were all in school and we were able to see this country. I had so much fun going to different hospital and learn so much about my job and country
This is my second travel assignment with AMN, the 1st ended after i quit due to unsafe assignment in 2011. So I stupidly gave them another shot. I work in Buffalo, NY -12hr Nights on a Tele MedSurg unit that gets no less than 5 to 8 admissions a night. The computerized medication administration is very cumbersome and long. All the supervisors are horrible except one! They float me after 4 hours and only give me a hour notice so I'm rushing to get my charting and meds done. I am so confused at times as to which patients I have as I end up having taken care of no less that 12 to 13 patients by the nights completed. The worst part of the job is having no sitters to help with confused bed jumpers! The Mgr doesn't want falls but we can't be everywhere, either. She also doesn't want to be bothered with issues that arise with patients and their families. The overall morale of the staff is low. The staff are helpful as well as ask me if I need assistance. The hardest part of the job is not getting a break on time. The AMN Pay sucks!!! AMN makes good money from the facility, but chooses not to fairly compensate the nurses that work for them. I was told that I would make more if I didn't take company housing, but my pay rate stayed at $16.30/ hour; the nurses at the facility make at least $30.00 over hour!!! AMN sucks and I'm going to PPR Travel at the completion of thus contract.
Sure! Definitely will give you a call and thank you for listening to me.
