FAQs

Here is an example of a nomination story from a past DAISY Award nomination:

“She is quietly confident and unfailingly compassionate. One of my favorite examples was the care she took with a comfort care patient who was about to celebrate her 100th The patient’s daughter mentioned the birthday to Donna, who leapt into action, pulling out all the stops to make the patient’s day as special as possible. Donna collaborated with the chef and dietary associates to prepare a cake and sweets and mobilized her entire team to decorate the room with birthday balloons and flowers. Everyone involved gathered to sing “Happy Birthday,” celebrate and wish the patient well. Donna’s compassion and initiative transformed what could have been a low and lonely day for the patient into a treasured memory.” – Nomination for Donna Baybay

TRAVELER REVIEWS
Host Healthcare is amazing! Best travel co out there! Amanda is the recruiter I have & she is wonderful. She is there from the beginning. From searching for the perfect assignment throughout completion of a contract - Amanda is there for me! Host Healthcare treats their nurses so well
Macie Brassell Mar 6, 2024
Amanda Goad is the most amazing recruiter I have worked with. She is the most responsive and go-getter. She is in constant contact with you or hospitals to get you offers and/or advocating for you. She is super motivated and helpful. If you have the opportunity to use her, you will not regret it.
Alyssa Veilleux Mar 18, 2024
Needed to move across country to be next to my partner, but blindly jumping into a full time job for a hospital system I was not familiar with was out of the question. Host Healthcare (Natalie G specifically) stood by me and helped me fulfill my absurdly specific requests. I was a first time time traveler and I couldn't have made it without the support I received!
Maria Samokisheva Mar 11, 2024
Just finished my first contract with Host Healthcare (fifth overall) and they were amazing! Specifically my recruiter Jenny Berroth. Jenny was so helpful and easy to communicate with. I had a couple issues come up and Jenny was all over them and took care of everything so I could just concentrate on being a nurse, while she handled the rest. I can’t recommend Host and Jenny enough! You have to give Host and Jenny a try, you’ll be glad you did!
