  • Run away from this agency. I joined them on behalf of a referal and it was the worst mistake ever. First of all, 1 month into my contract they "decided they were over paying me" even though I was getting paid what my contract stated and my paychecks got cut almost in half! When I called about this I was told they were paying me bonus pay and not regular pay (I had been working bonus hours so no they were wrong). Also in the state of California, any hours past 8 is considered time and half pay. They decided to stop paying time and half until after you worked 9 hours, again more money taken away from me and not what my contract stated. When I called about they money being taken away from me, I was told this was "their policy". Um no, your ignoring the California labor laws. Also, I called them concerning my schedule for the holidays and that I was incorrectly scheduled for EVERY SINGLE holiday, again not what my contract stated. When I talked to the supervisor at the hospital I was told "there was nothing she could do". I contacted my recruiter who told me she couldn't do anything for me. Recruiters are suppose to have your back when a hospital takes advantage or ignores what was signed in a contract. My recruiter ignored my multiple requests for help and ignored my concerns about the unsafe working environment I was in. I have worked with agencies that would have never allowed such things to happen. I also had the unfortunate experience of working with AMN, who is notorious for this kind of behavior. I thought I had rid myself of such unprofessionalism and agencies that outright rip you off. I was wrong. I will add this to my list of agencies to NEVER work for. If you don't mind having you paycheck mysteriously cut in half for "made up reasons", have your contract be a complete lie, and have no support from your recruiter, then by all means this the company for you. 11/13/2017
  • Being with PPR for the past 2.5 years has been a great experience. Lindsay Graves is an amazing recruiter. I've always felt supported and confident that my recruiter was working in my best interest to find the best contract for me. PPR is the best! 11/06/2017
  • Run far, faraway from this travel agency. HR refuses to answer phone and also doesn't call you back even though you call and leave a message everyday. None of the departments talk to each other. QM tells you one thing, recruiter tells you something else and on and on. My nursing recruiter is the most dishonest person I have ever met. She lied to me so many times that I finally had enough. I heard all the travel nurse horror stories and PPR definitely lived up to them. My recruiter used intimation and bullying to get me to sign contracts that I did not want. She would scream at me YES a grown woman literally screamed at me when I would say no and bring up that I felt like I should be getting paid more. PPR is the one of the LOWEST paying agencies. The other travel nurses got paid 400-900 more dollars a week then me and told me I was getting taken advantage of by the recruiter. The last assignment I did I knew from the facility what I should have been paid but not until I was at the assignment and already signed the contract. My recruiter lied to me about what I was getting paid. She left out the 400 extra I was supposed to be getting. That adds up to about 5000 dollars for the contract. She did this on every assignment, She threatened me that if I didn't take an assignment that I would owe PPR money. Lying, intimidation and bullying through voicemails and texts are not the right tools to use for RN retention. Only positive is that I got paid on time but the pay was almost always wrong and I would have to sign papers to get my money. I would absolutely never recommend this agency or work with them ever again. NEVER!!!The hospitals are great but not the company. 11/05/2017
  • I have been working with PPR for 3.5 years, and have never gone with anyone else because they are the best! They are all so very friendly from each department and are quick to resolve issues if any arise! They have made my traveling career more than I ever thought it could be! Thanks so much PPR! 11/04/2017
  • I have worked with PPR for 2 years and still think they have been the best travel company I have worked for! Heather Fritts has been awesome, and is simply the BEST!!!! She was always able to get me Great contracts with Awesome pay!!! 10/31/2017
  • PPR has been an awesome agency to work with. They are quick to respond, help keep you organized and up to date on licenses, shots, fit testing, etc. They offer jobs in some of the most awesome places in the country. The pay has been good and great benefits. My favorite part of PPR has been my recruiter, Heather Fritts. She is extremely personable. My husband and I travel nurse together, which can be a challenge at times, but she has always done everything she can to get us to the places we’ve hoped to get to at the same time and the same shifts. She made the transition into travel nursing much easier and makes the more stressful aspects of this career path doable. We’ve had no need to use any other agency or recruiter since we’ve landed with this amazing combo! 10/26/2017
  • I started working for PPR in December 2014. I am so happy to work for them! They are so professional, always attend to my needs, and have excellent communication! Heather is my recruiter and she is just amazing!! The entire staff is great, they really do put their nurses first! I am on my 5th company assignment and am quite happy to be employed with them!! I highly recommend working for PPR!! 10/22/2017
  • I've been with PPR for 1 almost a year now. My recruiter comes through with every single thing she says she is going to do. I haven't had one issue with them so far. That was not the case with my 1st company. 10/17/2017
  • Working with Mary Geer at PPR has been a pleasure. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and always available to help answer any questions or resolve any issues I am having. I would recommend PPR to other nurses who are looking for a professional and reliable travel company. 10/16/2017
  • PPR is a great company to work with. The recruiters and other staff are helpful and nice, they become friends just as much as they become co-workers. 10/14/2017
  • By far, the best experience with recruiters and staff. 10/11/2017
  • My recruiter was Kelsey smith. The first assignment with them was pretty awful. They sent me to a really small hospital in the middle of no where Vermont where I witness several unsafe things occur but nothing addressed. I even had a nurse assign me a patient without telling me to cover herself and PPR did not have my back. They did nothing to correct the unprofessional situation. I know that there are several people that are satisfied with their service however. They are nice to you in the beginning but once they know you want something or need to talk to them they don't respond. The CEO is unethical and unprofessional. I don't think he knows how to conduct himself in the medical field. Nor did he address any of my concerns and submitted an email without documentation from me to the facility. PPR did not have my back in this situation either. I think that travel nurses really deserve to be communicated with and treated well. My precious agency I had no issues as with my new current agency also no issues. They even threatened me on the phone that I wasn't allowed to post a review about them that they would "come after me" you don't get to threaten people for your lack of care as a agency. And as my recruiter we'll, Kelsey is fake, Kelsey does not care about her nurses. Kelsey likes her pay check. And doesn't care who she hurts in the process to get it. I am scared for life because of this place. It has made me question traveling. I also finally have the support I need. And it didn't matter what day of the week it was no one ever called me. No one ever told me my insurance changed. No one sent me a correct gross pay break down. I got paid differently than my contract a lot less. I would look at blue pipes 2017. There is a reason why they are not top 10. 10/11/2017
  • I had the pleasure of working with Mary on my assignment in Colorado Springs. She was available to help me 24/7. There wasn't anything Mary wouldn't do to support me! This was my first travel contract and it was an extremely positive experience! I would recommend PPR to anyone looking for an agency that will take the time to get to know you and assist in getting you to where you'd like to travel! 10/10/2017
  • I used my RV for housing. Did not need benefits. Mary Geer was my recruiter. Mary and her team were great to work with and punctual in their responses. Mary followed up to make sure my needs were met. It has been a great assignment and wonderful hospital to work at. Thank you for a beautiful experience. 10/10/2017
  • I have found my home with PPR. I can't see myself using any other agency. They have been nothing short of amazing and have made the traveling process a breeze! 10/09/2017
  • PPR is a great company to work for. My recruiter Gabrielle Youngblood is such a nice person who is upfront about things and is always looking out for me. 10/08/2017
  • PPR has been amazing! I have received contracts in places that I have wanted to be and the pay is great! My recruiter, Kayla, is phenomenal! She is always quick to respond to texts and emails and has always been there for me. PPR has the small company feel with all the advantages of the larger agencies. I would recommend them to any travel nurse! 10/08/2017
  • As a novice to travel nursing, the recruiter should be more upfront about what high paying actually means. Also, there was no communication on how this all really works. with every question she tried to confuse me and keep me in the dark. Other than that and on the low paying side of travel nursing, they have truly been on top of it. 10/07/2017
  • LOVE my recruiter Gabrielle Youngblood!! She's always been available, accommodating, helpful!! Never had any issues or concerns with payroll, compliance team also available and accomodating. Insurance is pricey, but that's not high on my priority list. Would definitely recommend Gabrielle and her team. 10/07/2017
  • I began working for PPR Travel Nursing on April 15, 2013. When I put my name out into the internet world to get information on travel nursing, so many companies were calling and emailing. You know how that goes. It began to cause me some anxiety. It was overloading my brain. But the call I received from PPR was different than the others. The recruiter’s name was Kayla. Her voice was kind and sweet. When we talked, I cried because I was making a major transition in my career and was scared to death. She was very comforting and by the end of our conversation I knew I could trust her to help me take this next step. Over the next four and a half years, Kayla has remained my recruiter. We have become friends. She has gotten my assignments where I wanted every time. I’ve also learned over the years that all of PPR has my back. When I have troubles, my PPR family is there to stand and defend me. They have never let me down. When Kayla is out of the office, there is always an amazing recruiter covering for her. I wish I could name them all. I have spoken with many people throughout the company and everyone is so kind, supportive and amazing. I have never looked into other companies. No reason to. As long as I continue to be a travel nurse, (I plan on doing so for a long time) I will do so with PPR Travel Nursing on my team. They are more than a company. They are my family. 10/07/2017
  • I believe that I work for the best travel nurse agency, after hearing stories from others about their experiences. All of my experiences with PPR have been above my expectations. My recruiter works extra hard to get me the best pay and always takes time to explain all my concerns. 10/07/2017
  • Gabrielle was my recruiter and she was beyond amazing! She was always available if I had any questions, and did so much digging for me to find the best assignment. She made my time during travel so effortless. PPR is such a great company. I left traveling due to my husband’s job, but plan to travel again one day. Will most definitely use PPR again! Excellent company 10/07/2017
  • I've been with PPR for 2 years and I've always felt like they, specifically my recruiter Gabrielle Youngblood, have my back! 10/06/2017
  • I am on my second assignment with PPR. My recruiter Gabrielle is AMAZING. This is my first time traveling so naturally I always have a ton of questions and Gabrielle and the rest of the PPR team is always there to answer them for me. They are compassionate, kind, and truly care about their employees (which is not easy to find)! I’m looking for my third assignment and will 100% be staying with them. If you want a travel company that puts you FIRST don’t hesitate about joining PPR. 10/06/2017
  • I love working for PPR, everyone is very nice and if you have a problem with anything, they help you to get it taken care of 10/05/2017
  • PPR is the first and only travel agency I have used so far. They are so great! I have not one bad thing to say about them. I would highly recommend this agency to anyone. 10/05/2017
  • Not the highest paying agency but reliable and recruiters are always reachable and respond timely. Love that they offer at 401K and short term long term disability. 10/05/2017
  • My recruiter has gone above and beyond to get me assignments she knew I would like. And has been very personable. I was very homesick my first assignment and my recruiter was always there for me! 10/05/2017
  • I have been traveling with PPR since 2005. I have had the same recruiter for the entire time I have been with the company. Stacy Pavish is the best at what she does and I could not imagine working with anyone else. I have worked all across the US including Hawaii, and feel that PPR looks out for me. I look forward to many future assignments with Stacy and PPR. 10/05/2017

  • I've yet to have a bad experience with PPR and I'm pretty sure I never will. I have always had my questions answered in full. I've felt nothing but support and respect from my recruiter as well as the agency. This is truly a class act in terms of travel nursing. I hear from other travelers the horror stories from their agencies but I have none to contribute. I am looking forward to staying with PPR for years to come. 10/03/2017
  • I have stayed with PPR because of Stacy Pavish recruiter she always returns my emails calls in a timely manner. Satisfied with PPR. 10/01/2017
  • PPR is a reliable company. I would recommend them to nurses looking to travel. My recruiter always responds in a timely manner and always personalizes my job search for what I'm looking for. 09/30/2017
  • Fast responses from all disciplines at the company. My recruiter is very understanding and cares on an individual level. Always ensures pay is fair, and works hard to meet preferences and requests. I couldn't recommend this company more! 09/29/2017
  • PPR is an amazing company!! I've been with them for 2 years now. Stacy Pavish is by far the best recruiter to work with. She always puts you first, is always available, and always answers emails in a timely manor. I've never had a problem with my paycheck and it's always on time. I've talked to other recruiters from different agencies and NONE of them compare to Stacy. I'd never use another company!! 09/29/2017
  • I decided to switch agencies against my better judgment. At first everything was okay, but my recruiter is a typical mean girl. The entire office is clicky and very fake on the phone. They don't genuinely care about your well being or how you are doing. They want to make sure that they look good vs. making sure that their nurses are happy and the assignments are treating them well. I would not recommend this agency to anyone. I actually hope they just go out of business to save other travelers from falling into their trap. The pay was indecent and never compensated for missed shifts due to hospital canceling travelers. They also did not give me a pay break down and shorted me 200 dollars every week. I would avoid them if I were you. Group of catty high school women with no actually empathy for traveling nurses. Nor any respect for them for that matter. Very disappointed in them. Would never go back. 09/11/2017
  • Start out with the pay package. The package I was emailed prior to interview was not the pay the recruiter said was ACCEPTED by the hospital. There was a three dollar difference. THEN I was sent HCA/Healthtrust time sheets. (Recruiter still denies that CHS is a part of Healthtrust) I was informed *by the hospital) the bill rate and I got about half of the bill rate. The manager of the floor asked me to extend. My recruiter NEVER told me an extension was offered. Even after I told her it was offered. And was told ALL the travel reimbursement was paid at the beginning of the contract. In other words, you get paid to go to the assignment, but not to get home afterwards. Nope, not again. 09/08/2017
  • Left the travel world for a few years due to family needs. I have returned 08/05/2017
  • I've completed multiple contracts with PPR, and appreciate their honesty and integrity. My pay isn't nickled and dimed to death if I am short hours. 07/15/2017
  • Hands down my favorite group of people to work with! My recruiter Sarah Abramson is amazing! She listens to my needs and works wonders when finding me assignments that I want (I've been pretty picky). I find pay to be comparable, if not better than other companies. I haven't had any issues that didn't immediately get taken care of. Every person I've come into contact with at this company has been so friendly and helpful. 04/28/2017
  • I have worked off and on with PPR but am back again because they seem to just be the best. I trust my recruiter, the pay is great, the insurance is awesome and the options are excellent!! I have my recruiters cell phone 04/19/2017
  • IN doing this job in this role, you hear the horror stories. I've seen plenty of travel nurses get screwed over and end up changing agencies. Not so with PPR. I will gladly stand with them and recommend them to any one considering the travel nurse lifestyle. They've never done me wrong and in fact, in a shocking twist, they listen to me. They fight for me when things aren't quite going well on assignment. I would be remiss if I did not mention that my recruiter, Stacy P, is the bees knees. She is so responsive and proactive and caring towards what is going on with me and sometimes even beyond nursing. She's amazing, plain and simple. PPR is a company I see myself staying with for the foreseeable future, no doubt. 04/06/2017
  • PPR is an amazing company. My recruiter is always available and stays on top of things. My wife and I travel together and she has always been able to find us great jobs at the same facility. We tell her where we want to go and she finds us great positions. My checks have always been on time and I've never had a problem getting reimbursed for certificates or licensure. PPR is amazing and I'd never travel with any other company. 04/06/2017
  • If you want an agency that puts nurses first, this is your agency! I've been with PPR for two years and I could not be happier. My pay is always top notch and my recruiter is always prompt with responding to me. I have yet to pick a job location that I didn't get because my recruiter is the best in the business. Take my advice and look no further! 04/05/2017
  • lowest pay, bad service and their employees from recruiter to CEO don't care about nurses. Recruiter Rosie is stupid! If u ever transact with this agency especially with Rosie, pls do everything via email for your proof because Rosie will lie. 04/05/2017
  • They will low ball you especially if you have accent. They are also nice in the beginning but not after they got your business. Hard to reach them especially if you are in the west coast bec they are all in Florida. They ignore calls if they know you need something from them. 03/03/2017
  • Do not sign up with this agency. I made a wrong choice. I learned I am have the lowest compensation package among all travel nurses from various agencies in the facility. 03/03/2017
  • Great company to work for. I had many friends go through them before I started travel nursing, and they all had nothing but great things to say! When doing research for travel nursing, no agency compared to PPR. I know they will support me and genuinely care about my best interest at heart. Kayla Canon is my recruiter and she is fantastic! I would recommend Kayla and the PPR team to anyone! 05/17/2016
  • I haven't been a travel nurse long (just under a year) but I've done 4 assignments with PPR. My recruiter, Stacy Pavish is amazing. I know that she will do everything in her power to get me where I want to go and give me the resources I need to get there. She is always willing and patient when it comes to finding information for me or answering questions. She is almost always available when I need her and the few times she wasn't, she responded within 12 hours. If it had been emergent, I know I have ways to get in touch with her immediately and that she would be there for me. She is an amazing asset to her agency. I firmly believe that a recruiter can make or break an agency, Stacy is one of those that helps this agency thrive! Thank you for all you do Stacy! 04/13/2016
  • PPR is everything I want, everything I need, and more. My recruiter (I'm going to name drop here because she totally deserves it), Kayla Canan, is both a friend and the most professional and accurate person anyone could hope to helping them through the process of travel nursing. I hear other travel nurses complain about the woes of their companies/recruiters,and I'm always at a loss because all the staff at PPR has done nothing but the best for me. Thank you PPR!!! 04/13/2016
  • I absolutely love my travel agency. My recruiter is great and very personable. She is helpful whenever I am needing her and gets back to me within a timely manner. I have nothing but good thing to say about the company! 04/13/2016
  • PPR is a wonderful company to work with and for with travel nursing! Everyone is always so friendly and easy to work with and easy to get ahold of whenever you need something! Benefits are great and pay is competitive! They work very hard to get you assignment where you will be happy And content! Thanks PPR for being an awesome company to work for and with! So happy I made the switch :) 04/13/2016
  • Have had nothing short of a wonderful experience with PPR. Could not speak more highly of my recruiter, Kayla Canan. I recommend her and PPR to anyone I am given the opportunity. She and the company truly go above and beyond to support their nurses! 04/13/2016
  • Best agency EVER! 04/13/2016
  • Very organized. The recruiters are very responsive to all needs. highly suggest to anyone interested in Travel Nursing!! 04/12/2016
  • Great recruiter, pay is on track with what most other agencies seem to offer. Never an issue with my pay. Always know what is expected of me, company has thus far met my expectations as well. 12/02/2015
  • Like one person said, once they find out you are leaving, it's like dr. Jekyll and mr Hyde. The recruiter blames everything on you and said you should have done this and that and they couldn't worked better worked for you. And when you ask for copies of your documentation that you sent to them, like a physical that YOU pay for, it's a no. Impossible to reach at night when you have a problem. Overall a very poor agency. Very disappointed because they were awesome when I started. Now the recruiters never contact you to see how things are going. They just send out gift cards. 08/17/2015
  • Once they find out you are leaving the agency, all of a sudden, the real PPR rears its ugly head. Everyone is mean. I had an issue one early morning with paperwork that didn't sent from PPR and I couldn't a hold of anyone. They are rude in their emails and are very annoying because they will send one email for the same thing like twice a day. The recruiters are hard to reach and you have to leave several messages. 08/05/2015
  • Impressed overall 06/08/2015
  • This recruiter was nice until they were rushing my background check for an asap start. I told them it would take more than a week, and because no affordable housing was available, i would have to get my RV ready, then the day before the credentialling had to be in for the hospital, no one was available to speak to me at the agency, so I called HR, and the lady there was nice, and said that the QA contact at the agency was totally inappropriate in her language. The agency cancelled the pending contract and bullied me. I was very nice to them. 05/31/2015
  • Worked with them several times but this last time made me decide to never do it again. Inaccurate paychecks. Unprofessional and just plain rude conduct. Takes them days to respond. Trying to shove an assignment I have no interest in down my throat. Never again. 04/08/2015
  • Worked with them several times but the last contract made me never want to use them again. Can't get my recruiter on the phone. Paychecks are wrong. Very unprofessional. They have really gone downhill and that's a shame because they used to be top of the line. 03/11/2015
  • PPR is a fantastic travel nurse company. The housing is the bomb.com which is important a priority fir me! They are small but professional and attentive to your needs! Very customer service focused! They rock ! 09/27/2014
  • Been with PPR 5 years, my recruiter Mandy has taken exceptional care of me. 09/05/2014
  • Very friendly staff. Knowledgable and always helpful. 07/09/2014
  • I worked with them several times over a period of 2.5 years, and another agency also. My recruiter became very upset with me because I didn't accept an assignment in a location that was unacceptable to me for a good reason and told me if I didn't take it , he wouldn't have anything else to offer me. I did come back at a later time and was ripped off big time with housing and $75/week pet fees. Then when I went with another agency for the next assignment found my travel money had been left out of my contract. Be sure you check your contract closely before you sign anything. Ask to see it before you accept the assignment! 02/19/2014
  • Yes another agency that doesn't support you. This time I was fired for a Facebook posting that another nurse said I said. I have no evidence of this posting. Plus I am at home why is the nurse at work when she should be taking patients? They also said I was acting wierd? Ok. I am taking them to court for the remainder of my contract. They have no contacted Unemployment for my wages because, they fired me for the wrong reason. 10/01/2013
  • Good Company 09/20/2013
  • Had a bad recruiter, had to fight for what I wanted on a contract. Their web site says one thing but does another. Pay scale and insurance on par with other companies. The housing was great but they out source that. I think the recruiter really makes or breaks an assignment and mine was not receptive at all. 03/14/2013
  • 10/20/2007
  • Have worked several assinments with this company. they have taken great care of me. 11/30/2006
  • I like the company. I am not satisfied with my recruiter. I have had 3 recruiters in 1 year due to them leaving the company. 11/08/2006
  • Traveled with PPR for my first assignment. All in all it went well. My recruiter was kind-of pushy though, and unsupportive of my decision to leave PPR due to them not having assignments in the state I wanted to go to.
  • Housing arrangements were excellent, traveling with pets, they found a very pet friendly place. Three cals to insure that everything was going well in the first 5 days of a new assignment. Everything that they stated would be was exactly as they stated.
  • This company fall short in the areas of Supportiveness and efficiency. Too much paper work. I am not for sure but they do not guarantee work hours.
  • My recruiter was a bit ditzy but she tried to get me the best deal
  • if a specific radius is needed for closeness to home needs, its much harder to get an assignment and you MUST stay on top of recruiter to make sure you have an assignment BEFORE your current one is up!
