Per Diem Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Annandale, VA – May 7, 2014
Doing per diem for an staffing agency was a positive challenge. I was able to work in varies areas of the different hospitals. This experience made me very flexible and knowledgable of how the same process could be done differently. Each unit was different and it made me easy to adapt to different scenarios. I learned how to manage a staffing agency. Each assignment was a learning experience. I have worked in the Emergency rooms, Medical and Surgical Intensive Care units, Endoscopy, Open Heart Surgical Unit, Medical Step down , Oncology, Post Anesthesia Care Units, Pre Anesthia care units, Pre admit testing, creditentialing for American Association of Nursing, and many other opportunities. After 5 years of this experience I opened my own Registered Staffing Agency for 4 years.
The opportunity to work in multiple areas of medicine and meeting a diverse groups of people

Working with a staffing company was a little different at first but soon I became at home there. I got lots of work ranging from emergency technician to PCT in ICU at St. Joseph Hospital, Orange coast and Fountain Valley Memorial. I feel I got at lot of experience during my time there.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Newtown Square, PA – April 22, 2016
It was a fun and busy place to work. The mentality was work hard play hard. Hard work produced generous compensation as it was a commissioned position. At the time I worked at MedStaff there was opportunity for growth. They have since been bought out by Cross Country Healthcare.
A typical day as a dialysis tech at Medstaff is exciting, demanding,important and I always feel needed.
Dialysis Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Chicago,Il – September 24, 2015
Working for Medstaff has been a great experience considering this was my first time working for an agency as a dialysis tech its a demanding position help is always needed I've always felt important for role in helping to maintain life. One of my dislikes working for an agency is the cancellation of your assignment.
meeting new people not having to deal with politics
Consultant Associate (Current Employee) – Newtown Square, PA – May 17, 2015
Great 1st job out of school. Really taught me a lot about time management and 1 aspect of the healthcare business. Its under a bigger company, Cross Country Staffing, which seems very disorganized and because the bigger company seems disorganized the smaller branch offices look unprofessional. Overall pay for the first job does not suck, you just end up keeping in mind that you don't get paid that much to put up with some of the headaches. There really isn't a supervisor above you that is willing to help you out too much. Great work and personal life balance.

Travel Nurse (Former Employee) – West Roxbury, MA – June 19, 2014
There are so many things that I learned as a travel nurse, but by far the most important was to be a patient advocate. As and ICU travel nurse the expectation is that you can float to multiple units, as well as non ICU floors. If I was unfamiliar with the patient population, I focused on giving the best care possible and speaking to the patients needs. This included being floated to a rehab unit. I was completely out of my element and feeling a bit flustered. A patient redirected my attention and changed my perspective of nursing. I was nervous and unsure of how to transfer a quadriplegic patient. He said, "If you can get someones heart to start again, you can pick a guy off the floor if you drop him." This lesson taught me that patients are first and foremost individuals and that we are all vulnerable, making the nurse to patient relationship one of collaboration and advocacy.
Enjoyed traveling to another state for employment at this point in my life
Surgical Technologist (Former Employee) – Newtown Square, PA – June 3, 2014
My typical day at work was working at Georgetown University Hospital in the operating room. I enjoyed working with all different kind of people and the managers were all very nice people to work for. The hardest part of this job was being put in as an assistant to any surgeon and having to learn his technique or way of doing things so quickly. Overall, I enjoyed working here, but at that point in time of my life I had some personal issues I was dealing with in which I have overcome and I am ready to resume a long term career.
