Why travel with Freedom? After all, we’re certainly not the only travel nursing company for you to choose! As the supply of qualified nurses dwindles and the number of medical staffing companies continues to grow, we’ve found some key differences between us and them. Try these Freedom Differences on for size.
No Drama Nursing
The reality of nursing it can be, and often is, hard work. Days can be tiring and filled with experiences very few can relate to, but that’s what makes all the work nurses do admirable. Just about any job comes with a bit of office politics and when tension and pressure runs high, that drama can multiply. Those who work in nursing don’t need a reminder about the drama that can occur on the floor, but even more, they shouldn’t have to deal with it.
Raise your hand if you’ve dealt with:
- Bullying while nursing
- Poor shift assignments due to being the “new nurse on the block”
- Lack of detail when it comes to pay
- Constant harassment from new medical staffing companies
- Getting stuck in crummy housing
- Bait and switch tactics
We thought so. That’s why Freedom is a “No Drama” Zone. We strive to give our experienced medical professionals traveling assignments they can enjoy so this remains a rewarding career they love. How in the world can we guarantee something like that? By offering our nurses a shoulder to lean on and a fair and balanced voice of reason when facing challenges in their careers. We work to find clients and nurses who live and work by the very same mantra. We treat you right and make sure our clients do too! (We even have No-Drama buttons.) We’re committed to safe and supportive working environments for travel nurses. Period.
Lucrative Career = Fair Compensation
A career in nursing is still a job. That means our nurses are excited by providing their patients and facility compassion and dedication, but still want to provide for themselves and family. Plus, a happy and healthy employee always means a more productive and passionate worker. We know nurses want to help the world, but we understand they need to be taken care of to do that. Our goal is to help our travelers provide for today, tomorrow and years from now. That means we offer top wages for the valuable nursing skills they bring to each and every one of their facilities while offering affordable, nationwide health, dental and vision benefits. We’re not going to nickel and dime you out of the salary you deserve.
Life on the move is strenuous and traveling nurses face very different challenges than most professionals. We’ve thought long and hard about that and our resolution was to offer private or supplemental housing, so they can rest easy and comfortably in their new home. Transportation can be another stressor, so we made sure none of our nurses were left wondering how to make it to their assignment by completely covering the trip.
Fur Babies are Family
Did you know owning a dog or cat may improve heart health while working within stressful situations? A study compared the resting heart rate and blood pressure of people who owned pets to those who didn’t while working through a timed math task. They found the pet owners were less likely to have spikes in either and, as a result, performed better. Other research found simply petting a companion animal lowers blood pressure and cholesterol.Did you know owning a cat or dog may improve heart health while working in stressful environments?

Those are only a few benefits of having an animal waiting for you back home, wherever home currently is. Stressful situations are no stranger to traveling nurses and they not only deserve to have pets while on assignment, they could be offering better care because of it. So we provide resources for traveling nurses with pets and ensure our housing and travel arrangements are dog- and cat-friendly.
Freedom Healthcare Staffing is a big family and the central part of its success surrounds the happiness and health of our traveling nurses. It’s our goal to understand our nursing staff while learning all we can about the facilities of our clients so we can make the best placements, every time. Assignments might be temporary, but they should still be positive. Nurses care for the world, so we are doing our part to take care of them.
