PPR is expertly proactive, reimburses me for required certifications, they send out snail-mail thank you notes and gift cards, and they work reasonably within my full-time schedule. My recruiter is easy to get a hold of, she is aware of my job desires, and she is personable. PPR wants to be your partner, a very helpful and supportive partner, in the nursing travel job market.
Friendly hard working company - Would definitely recommend.
Travel RN (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – March 26, 2018
PPR is an amazing travel company. From the start my recruiter Heather impressed me with her kind spirit, knowledge of my field, and desire to answer all the questions I could possibly think of. She works hard to get me the travel assignments I'm looking for and is always available. I have never had a problem with payroll or anything else. I would definitely recommend PPR to anyone looking to be a travel nurse!
Registered PACU Nurse (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – March 10, 2018
From the start, I had great support from my recruiter, Stephani R., who still checks in on me from time to time. I really enjoyed working with her the most and knew she always had my back. If I ever had issues or concerns within the company, such as payroll, she took matters into her own hands. I appreciated that. My job in travel nursing was pretty great as the team was amazing that I had the pleasure of working with, however, the hours were a little challenging for me. I did know what I was getting into though. I learned so much more about my specialty area and feel like I became a better nurse from the experience. I would definitely travel again with this company if and when the time is right :)

Great Travel Nursing Agency. My recruiter is very personable. They are efficient and timely. They were very helpful in picking assignments. I would recommend them to any new or experienced travel nurse.
Registered Nurse Medical Surgery/Trauma (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – February 23, 2018
Hospital I referred to was fast paced, but friendly. Concerns to recruiter of PPR addressed in a timely fashion. No big overall complaints. Limited availability for positions at different hospitals hard to find.
If you're going to be a travel nurse, do it with PPR, you'll thank me later.

I love PPR so much and my recruiter! Everyone from payroll to compliance communicates efficiently and makes life so much easier. I've used another company in the past so I have something to compare. Traveling can be stressful and they have done everything to make the process as smooth as they can. For as long as I'm traveling, I'll be with PPR.
Step-Down/Telemetry and Progressive Care Nurse (Former Employee) – Jacksonville Beach, FL – January 12, 2018
I had a good recruiter and that is key in the travel nursing business, I kept three recruiters working for me but only ended working with PPR every time. The first time it was a big hassle getting them every document they needed, as it felt really disorganized but once they had everything it was easier with each contract so I didn't leave. The pay they offered was the same as everyone else and I felt like my recruiter actually cared and she listened so that is a plus. I just didn't really like travel nursing which is why I left.
I started traveling almost a year ago. I put a lot of research into what company I wanted to go with. I talked to friends who had done some traveling, I looked on websites, I read all the reviews, looked into locations each company offered, the benefits each company offered. It was overwhelming to say the least. But I stuck with my gut and reached out to PPR when I was ready to begin the adventure. I thought I would use 2 maybe 3 different companies when I started out, as some travelers advise, but I really only needed PPR. They have positions all across the US and when I met a friend who also wanted to travel they helped us find locations that fit our criteria. My recruiter, Heather, is amazing. She didn't push me into any decision, she offered up all sorts of help and advice along the way, and she helped me find housing when I thought I wouldn't be able to. After talking with other travel nurses I have met along the way, I found that there is a common theme. There are a lot of good companies, but it's the recruiters who make all the difference. I have talked with other PPR travel nurses, who love their recruiters as much as I love mine. So, in my opinion, PPR has some of the best recruiters out there.
Traveler (Current Employee) – Boise – April 28, 2016
I've been a traveler for over 15 years and this is one of the best companies out there. They are always there when I need something, my recruiter is quick to respond. They also pay attention to small details that make a big difference
Pay attention to small details, available when needed
Smaller company-assignment may be subbed out result is less pay for assignment

The recruiters don't communicate with their nurses. Once they set you up with an assignment, you won't hear from them again until it's time for another assignment. When something comes up at night, nobody is available to help. You're basically on you own. I had paperwork that PPR hadn't sent over and nobody was there to send them over for me. It was a nightmare. I asked for a copy of a physical that I paid for and they refused to send it to me. The recruiters aren't nurses and know nothing about what we do. I'm pretty sure they set their favorite travelers up with the best jobs because you'll see on their website jobs that are open and that you want, but they won't offer them to you. All in all it was a horrible experience and once they found out I was leaving the company, everyone was rude to me. Basically, don't go with PPR.
Recruiters, job assignments, not available when you need them most
