You’ll Love Our Recruiters

Here’s what our travelers have to say about working with us


Recognized by

Kristian Branson is the best recruiter I have ever worked with. His response time is almost instant and will call and check in with you almost every week to make sure everything is going well with your assignment and that your needs are met. I am always in constant communication with him. Along with his impeccable repose times, he is extremely hard working and will continue to fight to get you the perfect job opportunity. If he ever retires I will be devastated. Host Healthcare and Kristian will continue to be my #1 choice when it comes to travel nursing.

Vendi Bayles has been my recruiter since November 2021. She has made my entire travel nursing experience stress free and possible to focus on what I care most about, the patients. She has been attentive with any questions I’ve had and persistent with getting the contracts that work best for me. She not only has been an amazing recruiter but also a great support system. I highly recommend her to every nurse I know.

Nick went above and beyond to make sure I had a smooth onboarding process. And when I had an issue with the hospital approving my time off request, he handled it quickly and got it in my contract. 10/10 recommend!

My recruiter Lauren Payne is the best!  She has made travel nursing a very easy process.  She always responds very quickly with a call or text and takes care of any issues that arise. I would definitely recommend her as a recruiter!!!
