    1. Pay could’ve been better on my first assignment, but I negotiated for my second one. And I like my recruiter a lot, but felt that compliance staff did not initially communicate well.

    2. Top notch travel company. My recruiter, Katie Patton is the absolute best and I would never even consider changing to another company!!

    3. Having trouble getting another assignment after my first placement so it is forcing me to extend so I can keep getting a paycheck.

    4. Katie Patton with Talemed was an awesome recruiter an asset to my new adventure. My journey was successful because of her positive attitude, kind and professional communication, and dedication. I would recommend Talemed to anyone considering traveling. Thanks Talemed and Katie !!

    5. TaleMed is the best! Every single staff member Ive interacted with has made me feel important, and My recruiter has become more than just a recruiter, she�s a friend. She�s supportive, patient, knowledgeable, and has my best interest in mind. She has gone above and beyond to find an assignment that best suits my personality and skill set. I would highly recommend them to any nurse looking to travel!!!

    6. Talemed is a fantastic agency to work for ! My recruiter Ryan Mummert is top ! He always gets me to where I want and truly cares about me as an individual not a number!

    7. Only thing negative is finding out from other travelers that my pay package was lower than that of other nurses working the same shifts.

    8. Talamed is a great agency to work for. I was paid by the agency for the first 3 days canceled by the hospital. My recruiter Ben Rascona was excellent. He was very attentive to my needs and he’s very knowledgable. I was even able to contact him after hours and on weekends.

    9. Greatagency!!! I was able to contact my agent after hours and on weekends if necessary. I was paid by my agency for the 3 days days canceled by the hospital.

    10. The company is great so far; we have had a few bumps in the road by our assignment being canceled on our way there almost 2600 miles away but our recruiter Austin worked diligently to get our situation fixed

    11. Everything about Talemed has been great and I wouldn�t choose another company with so many variables that can potentially totally happen when away from home. And the best recruiter!

    12. Great company! Fair, honest, available to me if I need them and my pay is always there and always correct! I highly recommend!

    13. TaleMed has never treated me poorly or made me feel like just another nurse. Every person I’ve worked with has been very nice and helpful. My recruiter keeps in contact with me regularly and checks in. Overall, TaleMed has made traveling a great experience for me!

    14. Talemed made the transition from staff to travel nurse smooth and easy. My recruiter understands me and exactly how /where I want my assignments to be. He is in constant contact with me. He just checks in to make sure I have everything I need and that things are going smoothly.

    15. Everyone at Talemed is amazing. I have traveled with them for over 3 years and they have always been super supportive. I’ve gotten numerous offers from different agencies but wouldn’t go anywhere else. Competitive pay, PTO, retirement, and just an all around great experience.

    16. The agency is reputable & reliable. Two words to best describe my recruiter Lana Kimmich: passionate and (very) knowledgeable. I appreciate all they�ve done for me.

    17. This is my first time working with Talemed. It has been an enjoyable experience, made even better by my amazing recruiter Lana! She is honest, timely, and makes you feel like you are her only client. She is quick to respond to any of your questions and has such a friendly and lovable personality. I feel well taken care of with Lana and Talemed.

    18. My travel recruiter, Lana Kimmich, is wonderful to work with! She is very attentive and makes sure I feel comfortable with every assignment. She is very easy to communicate with and is very easy to get ahold of. Her response time to questions/concerns is very quick. She is caring and wants the best for the nurses she is working with. I would 100% recommend her. Talemed is a great company to work for. It has a large selection of nursing assignments and hardworking employees. One of the details that I love about the company specifically is that they guarantee your pay even if you get called off your shift!

    19. My only regret was not finding TaleMed and my recruiter Lana Kimmich when I first started traveling. They go above and beyond and treat you like family.

    20. Lana is the best recruiter! She is always available with answers or even to just chat. TaleMed has been wonderful to work for. I appreciate the thoughtfulness during my assignments.

    21. I have worked with Lana for a year, and she has always been upfront and honest with me! She’s extremely friendly, helpful, and reliable. I worked with another recruiter previously, and they did not even compare. I highly recommend Talemed & Lana Kimmich. 🙂

    22. Left my previous company to work with Lana Kinmich at Talemed because she is simply the best. She’s honest, she is super quick with responses, and she is the most knowledgeable recruiter I’ve ever had. I recommend her to all of my friends who are looking to travel nurse! Highly recommend Talemed!

    23. I left a wonderful charge position in a Trauma ER to start my career in traveling and Lana Kimmich helped me ease any worries and was there every step of the way. She is an amazing recruiter who goes above and beyond. I recommend Lana and Talemed to any nurses that are already traveling or thinking of it.

    24. I love Talemed. Lana is the absolute best person. Not only does she care about my assignments but cares about me! She has helped me fulfill my goals and is super kind along the way. She is just as excited as I am when I get a job offer. I can’t imagine doing this with any other company or recruiter!

    25. I love working with Talemed, especially with my recruiter, Lana Kimmich! She has been supportive and in contact every step of the way. I�d recommend the company, and especially Lana, to anyone looking for travel assignments!

    26. I have loved everything about Telemed and what they have done for me. Lana is absolutely wonderful agent! She always keeps me updated and makes sure everything is how it should be and ready. She is so welcoming, kind, and positive! I would 100% recommend using Telemed and Lana.

    27. I love my recruiter with Talemed. He has been so understanding and helpful. He is always in contact without being annoying and totally informative without making me feel like I’m being sold something. I plan on having a long future with Talemed but they better keep Austin K.!

    28. My recruiter, Adam Gjessing, has been incredible. Partner and I are on assignment together, and he found a great fit for both of us!

      Great reimbursements for anything work-related, and a generous travel reimbursement on first & last checks.

      Overall, communications with the company have been professional and friendly. Would definitely consider taking more assignments with TaleMed in the future.

    29. Adam Gjessing is my recruiter, he has done everything I’ve asked of him, and honestly done so many things without being asked making my transition from staff to a travel nurse seamless, he was able to get the holidays i asked off for and my contract to me as quick as possible so i was able to secure a great housing opportunity. With adam there has been zero haggling for my contract, $1000 moving bonus, additional $500 bonus for 500 hours worked on the contract, as well as an ot rate of $75 all without asking he just provided to me. Able to contact him anytime I’ve needed him, never felt in the dark once during this transition to being a travel nurse and none of that is possible without Adam Ghessing!

    30. Our recruiter Adam Gjessing did a wonderful job guiding us into a great first assignment. He was patient with all of our newbie questions, and spent a lot of time helping us navigate everything it took to get our show on the road, so to speak. Talemed has provided so many convenient ways to make this transition easier

    31. Patrick Exner is my recruiter from TaleMed. Great with keeping open communication. Works hard to find right assignment with pay and location. Highly recommended!

    32. My recruiter, Patrick Exner is professional, honest, and very dependable. He is very available and present. Highly recommend.

    33. My recruiter, Robby M, has made my travel nursing experience amazing. He is ALWAYS going above and beyond to help me. He has far exceeded my expectations. He found me a position for the exact places and hospitals I have wanted to go to, is always available to chat, and does everything in his power to make sure I have great assignments. He always knows what is going on and is fast to handle any situations. I am lucky to have such a awesome recruiter.

    34. My recruiter bends over backwards for me and is never unavailable. She is super knowledgeable and hustles to make sure my needs are met. Love my company!!

    35. TaleMed is wonderful, easy to get a hold of my recruiter and anyone else in the company. They are always on top of things as well and I really love the guaranteed pay if you�re shift is cancelled by the hospital.

    36. I have Been working this this company for 1 year and my recruiter Lana Kimmich has been very supportive and attentive and on it every step of the way! I would Recommend her and talamed to new travelers anytime

    37. My staffing agent Lana is wonderful and always goes above and beyond to make sure I have everything I need and any extra information that would be helpful to me!

    38. Lana has been my recruiter for 3 years. She stays in touch with me even if I�m not on assignment with her. She is honest and has always been up front with with on everything. She is quick to respond and goes that extra mile! Talemed is a small agency with a big heart and takes care of their staff!

    39. Great agency. The best part are the recruiters– they really do desire to find exactly what you’re looking for and keep you updated.

    40. As a travel nurse, I feel confident and comfortable working with Talemed. My recruiter listens to exactly what I need and always comes through. It is easy to see that the company as a whole strives for compassion and honesty in their work.

    41. This company has been very good for me and my needs. They are flexible with what I need and with what I want and go the extra mile to make sure everything is clear and understood!

    42. Working with Talemed has been a great choice in my traveling career. Lana is honest, personable, and reliable which makes each new contract search go so smoothly.

    43. LANA KIMMICH with Talemed is THE BEST!! I researched a LOT of companies and spoke w countless recruiters before being referred to her by a fellow traveler. Lana is ELITE- I am super picky and she works with me endlessly to find exactly what I want. She is the friendliest & yet very professional to talk to on the phone. The pay is consistently higher than other companies I’ve talked to. I can’t say enough about how amazing she is! Would recommend her to anyone for an amazing experience! Thank you, Lana!

    44. A great recruiter that goes above and beyond makes all the difference. Lana has a special relationship with everyone she works with. We are so grateful to be with her and Talemed! Benefits/insurance is also great too.

    45. Great company! Staff is very professional yet friendly. Always willing to help. My recruiter is on top of everything at all times and treats me like family.

    46. Robby with Talemed is wonderful! He is friendly and answered all my questions in detail within a timely manner and he always called back when he said he would. He found just what I was looking for! Very easy to get along with, and not pushy at all. I would highly recommend working with him!

    47. I am so thankful that I made the switch and began working with Talemed after my first contract with AMN. From the very first phone call with Noah Zimmerlin I knew that Talemed was the right company for me. Every person that I’ve worked with at Talemed from my recruiter Noah all the way to HR, compliance coordinator, and payroll have all been incredibly kind. They treat you like a person and not a number and they all work together like a well oiled machine. Noah calls me frequently to check up on me, and works extremely hard to get me to where I want to go and negotiate things for me. During my first travel nursing contract with AMN my recruiter was very pushy like a car salesman and I very much felt like a number to them and I thought this was a normal part of the business until the day that Noah reached out to me. I can’t imagine traveling with any other company other than Talemed now or having anyone other than Noah as my sidekick! During my second contract with Talemed there was a small issue at the hospital and Noah along with everyone at Talemed quickly backed me and got the issue resolved. I feel a sense of safety and comfort working with Talemed because I know they truly care about their travelers. I’m looking forward to working with Noah and Talemed for a long time to come and I am so thankful they reached out to me and to know that I don’t have to look anywhere else!

    48. I have loved every minute of traveling from the very beginning of of the excitement and being scared to getting to know new nurses and I have a wonderful recruiter.

    49. Talemed connected me with my first assignment which led to many awesome travel nurse adventures. My recruiter, Noah, was always easy to reach by phone or email and fast to respond. Many thanks to Talemed for giving me the chance to dive into the world of travel nursing

    50. My recruiter, Diana Sheets, is great; would recommend her to anyone. She never stops looking for an assignment for you!

    51. I really love working with TaleMed, the pay could be a little better but my recruiter is honest, reliable and I know she is there for me!

    52. I really enjoy working with Lana Kimmich at TaleMed. The company has a lot of selections available, and I feel like they are much more genuine than others I have worked with before. My recruiter, Lana is a diamond into the rough when it comes to working with someone who explains everything well and has your interested ar heart.

    53. Lana is the best! I always feel taken care of and she is so on top of finding places for me to work. So glad I chose Talemed to work with!

    54. Ben Rascona with Talemed is super approachable and easy to work with. He does not pressure me at all and is very fast with communicating.

    55. I am very thankful for my recruiter. He made the transition from staff nursing to traveling much smoother than expected. I feel like I have the complete support of my recruiter and my company.

    56. Talemed has been extremely supportive of me during my travel nursing adventures. Its a smaller company so you really get to know the people you are working with for each assignment. I would definitely recommend them for any nurse looking to travel.

    57. My pay rate was less than ideal but I felt comfortable taking it having a recruiter that I felt like had my back throughout the process.

    58. Shannen Slaughter was very nice. She answered questions promptly and thoroughly. Everyone I spoke with was friendly.

    59. TaleMed has been an amazing company to work with! They�re very professional, eager to help, and consistent in communication. Overall, they�ve made my transition into traveling nursing stress free and fun! I�d highly recommend them to other traveling nurses.

    60. Wasn�t prepared for orientation start time and date and pre employment information that was necessary wasn�t given in a timely matter

    61. Everyone, from my recruiter to the payroll and compliance departments were extremely responsive, helpful, and supportive throughout my first assignment.

    62. Nothing but wonderful things to say about my recruiter Kendall and the whole team! I had an assignment within a week with excellent benefits and pay, and the onboarding was also extremely easy for me to complete in that single week. Thanks guys!

    63. Could use more experience in allied health fields, but my recruiter has gone above and beyond to find out answers to questions he didn’t know the answer to and gets back to me in less than 1 business day, every time. Would definitely recommend as a partner for travelers.

    64. My recruiter Nick Bess at TaleMed has been absolutely wonderful. Being new to such a different kind of career he was honest and although professional, it was like talking to one of my best friends! He made the process very stress free and any concerns or questions I had he was quick to resolve them or find someone who could. I could not be happier with my recruiter and the whole TaleMed team who have had my back every step of the way! My appreciation for them is of the upmost greatest and largest amounts! Thank you so much Nick and the TaleMed team!

    65. They�ve been really wonderful about listening to me about where I want to go and what I want, I felt more valued with them than other companies.

    66. As a nurse who decided to travel after being in my home hospital for almost ten years, I couldn�t be happier that I chose Talemed as my agency. My recruiter, Patrick, is absolutely amazing! He is both helpful and supportive and makes me feel like a priority, not a number. Talemed and Patrick have really made this experience wonderful for me.

    67. TaleMed is a great company to work for! My recruiter makes herself available to me at all times and is in constant contact with the compliance department at the onboarding of a new contract. They are helpful during the whole process of a travel contract and I recommend them to nursing friends!

    68. TaleMed is such a great company to work for. Communication between everyone I�ve talked to or emailed has always been prompt. My recruiter is amazing and always finds me what I am asking for, giving so many helpful tips along the way. They make sure to let you know a while before your certificates and licenses are expired so you can get everything done. I love working for TaleMed!

    69. I feel that the agency should be more aware and up to date on current tax laws in order to be straight forward with their nurses. Other than that, I am very pleased with the agency and I plan to continue working with them and recommending them to others.

    70. Since becoming a travel nurse, I have worked with many different agencies. Having worked with Lana Kimmich, I can not see myself working with another recruiter. She makes sure the transition with every assignment is smooth. I truly do appreciate the hard work she does for me and will not hesitate to go above and beyond for her clients.

    71. Talamed has always taken care of my needs and constantly check on me throughout my assignments. My recruiter is excellent and so is the staff!!!

    72. As a new travel nurse Lana K. and Talemed has been wonderful to me. She makes herself available when needed and answers all my questions and concerns promptly. When away from her office, she directs me to other members of the team which is great. I definitely would recommend her to my friends.

    73. I have worked with 4 other companies and none compare to how awesome TaleMed is. I get really personalized care and they pay attention to detail where other companies have dropped the ball. My recruiter, LANA KIMMICH, is a diamond in the rough, and she makes sure that I have competitive pay, am contacted at the appropriate time for my schedule, and my email correspondence is personalized. Lana, also has my back and understands that I am human and get sick or have emergencies outside of work, and all of my needs are met when I am about to partake in a new contract so that there are no surprises. TaleMed is basically where I have been for the last near year and I dont really see myself moving companies anytime soon.

    75. Great company, wonderful recruiters! The assignment selection isn’t the best; however, they do try their best to accommodate.

    76. Thoroughly pleased with my experience so far working with TaleMed. My recruiter, Lana Kimmich, goes above and beyond. She is very knowledgeable and a true asset to the company. I couldn�t have imagined my first year traveling would have gone as smoothly as it has; thanks in large part to Lana Kimmich and the TaleMed team!

    77. Working with TaleMed, Lana my recruiter and Angie in compliance has been an amazing experience. I have worked with 4 agencies in 12 years and they by far have the best staff working for you…not to mention insurance!

    78. My recruiter Lana is amazing! Answers all questions, supportive, keeps in touch to check up on me frequently, etc! Simply a GREAT RECRUITER! Talemed is a great agency, all the support staff is easily accessible and very helpful and friendly!

    79. Just started traveling and I have had the best experience so far. My recruiter has been there for me every step of the way. Even on her days off I can still get in touch for a quick question. I am constantly being encouraged. My husband has never talked to her and he even loves her.

    80. I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision to allow Chris Dietrich with TaleMed to assist me in my new travel nursing adventure! He is 100% honest, transparent,loyal, hard working,personable, and obviously loves what he does. He has earned my trust completely and I plan to continue to working with him in all my future travel adventures!

    81. TaleMed wasn’t a company I had heard of and they prefer to let their travelers choose their housing, but are my favorite to work with as far as friendliness and knowledge in the market.

    82. TaleMed has been nothing but great as well as my recruiter Austin Knottenbrock. They have made my assignment easy and stress free. When I had an accident and had to call in, I was not charged for missing a day of work. Very quick to reimburse for anything. Austin also got me and my travel partner an assignment together and exactly what we was looking for when other agencies had tried to discourage traveling as a pair. I highly recommend them!

    83. My recruiter is always there. He�s pretty quick to answer me when I need him. I don�t really deal with anyone else too much. The nurse manager calls me here and there to make sure I�m doing ok.

    84. Overall great company to work for, slightly low take home pay for this specific assignment but they have great rates in other areas. Very happy with my decision to sign with them!

    85. Talemed is the only agency I have worked for and I cannot imagine working for anyone else! When you find something great you stick with it. Ryan Mummert is my recruiter and is the best. He has made sure I am comfortable with every assignment, checks with me regularly, is a creative thinker and the best of Talemed!

    86. One of the main reasons I love working for TaleMed is my recruiter. I spoke with Ben off and on for a few months when researching travel companies, and it was like catching up with an old friend. That connection made me decide to join the TaleMed family and it was the best decision of my career.

    87. My recruiter is the best. She keeps communication, is not pushy, very helpful, has your back for issues that may arise and is just sweet. I didn’t feel like I got the best pay for my first assignment but for my next it was better.

    88. My recruiter I have jad for my first 2 assignments has been awesome. Shes super helpful, and is always there when you need her.

    89. I am currently on my first assignment with Tale Med after having a not so good experience with my last two companies. They have been so accommodating and have really made me feel appreciated as one of their nurses! They have made sure I had all the info I needed and offered me a decently higher pay on my extension than the agency I started at this hospital with. Highly recommend.

    90. So far working with Talemed has been nothing but pleasant. It helps to have a recruiter that is available to answer all of your questions all the time. Ryan Mummert has been great to work with

    91. Brittni Marino is my recruiter she�s a great person to work with. She�s very honest if you have a question regarding some of the credentials or miscalculations she would not say I don�t know but instead she will say she will find out the answer for you and right on that day she will call you back for the answer which is very important between nurses and her recruiter. She�s very helpful especially finding the best rate. The most important thing is she will always check for her nurses how they�re doing especially if you are new to this traveling job just like me. There wasn�t even a week that she didn�t call me to check how I was doing. You will get the respect that you need from her I really like from a recruiter.

    92. I worked in Med/Surg area and it has been the toughest area to work in when traveling or not traveling. I tried both night and day shift. My recruiter was the one thing that was holding me together. I was aware of the challenges so I didn’t accept blindly but having his support really made that difference of surviving the contract.

    93. I worked with Lana with her first company who was recommended to me by a good friend. A change of scenery for Lana had me go with a back up recruiter from her original company after she moved, while later I signed through one more recruiter and agency after going across country with my girlfriend�s company. Now, we have BOTH signed with Lana because no one compares to how genuine, hardworking, loyal, professional, and personable she is. Authenticity and communication is key to building relationships and her ratings speak for themselves. She has had my back since day one and I can trust her finding me the jobs I prefer and the wages I�m looking for. I am committed with Lana and Talemed as long as I continue to travel. You rock Lana!

    94. This is my first assignment with Lana at Talemed and I could not be happier with her as my recruiter! She is fabulous with communication and always keeps me well updated! Lana is also super personable, efficient, and goes above and beyond, more so than any recruiter I’ve had thus far.

    95. I’ve been traveling for about a year now and a good friend introduced me to Talemed and specifically my recruiter Lana when I first started traveling. A year into my experience and my current contract is the first I’ve done with Lana. She is such a quality human being. I am the type of person who wants to be over-informed and even before I agreed to an assignment with her she was patient in educating me on what to look for in an assignment, talking me through pay packages, and providing me all the info I needed to understand this field and make the best choice without trying to push me into a decision like some other recruiters do. She lets you know from the jump that she is truly on your side, in your corner, here for you! She calls and texts through the assignment, wanting to make sure that you’re okay. She is so accessible and communicates more than I do lol, and I appreciate that so much! I have been blessed to work with her and look forward to many more assignments with her and Talemed.

      Meeting the other team members and even the CEO (who bought me and my friends lunch) at TravCon2018 lets me know that they are the same as Lana. Talemed is full of quality people that are like a family and treat you the same when you work with them.

    96. Lana is so awesome! She is the type of recruiter that doesn�t want to place you wherever just to get paid! She really cares about where you go, and just wants you to be happy and get the most bang for your buck. She has a lot of experience in the field, so she�s a great resource as well! I�ll definitely be sticking with Lana for my travel assignments!

    97. Lana is an amazing recruiter and will do anything for her nurses. The company as a whole is wonderful as well, they�re always there to help and make sure everything gets done. Lana is available literally whenever and is easy to talk to and is always looking out for the best interest of her nurses

    98. I have worked with Lana for over 2 years now. She is the best! I followed her to Talemed when she switched companies because of how awesome she is. She wants the very best experiences and packages for her nurses. She is very approachable, easy to get a hold of, and responds quickly. She is always happy to help and answer any questions. I would highly recommend working with her and Talemed.

    99. My recruiter, Lana Kimmich, is absolutely phenomenal! She has been so helpful in every aspect of this career. I definitely recommend her to everyone that is interested in traveling.

    100. Great company. My recruiter, Austin Kottenbrock, has been extremely helpful and will always find an answer to any question you may have. He is very supportive.

    101. I enjoy working with Talemed. Noah, my recruiter, has been wonderful throughout the whole process. I feel like a valued member of the organization. I feel like they are working for me.

    102. Lana is seriously a hustling angel. I have been a travel nurse for 5 years and I have stuck with Lana for over two years because I know a phenomenal recruiter when I come across one. She is so transparent, makes your priorities hers, checks in on me, and is all around encouraging. She has cheered me on for more than just job placements and she is all around a wonderful person. I am so thankful our paths crossed and I am so glad I have not only an amazing recruiter but also a forever friend! Thank you for everything Lana!

    103. I have the best recruiter Ryan, he goes above and beyond! He�s like my best bud who helps me through everything when it comes to travel nursing!

    104. Talemed is a wonderful travel agency. They have been very helpful and supportive in getting me started in the right direction, as a newbie, into the travel nursing life. My recruiter, Ryan Mummert, as well as any other employees I have worked with at Talemed, have always been available to help me, and responds to calls, emails and texts quickly to resolve my problems, concerns or questions. Talemed is a great company to work for and I highly recommend them and my recruiter Ryan to any travelers who are looking to work with the best.

    105. Talemed has bent over backwards for me! Both my recruiter and compliance coordinator are the reason I’m even still travel nursing to this day. Talemed has the most affordable health care plan, great pay and I will be with them until I retire from traveling.

    106. I cannot say enough about how amazing Lana is as a recruiter. She is always transparent in everything that needs to happen and wants to make sure that you and her are on the same page as far as what your wants and needs are. I’ve worked with Lana for several years and it has been pretty much smooth sailing the whole way through. I don’t think that you can find a recruiter that is as on top of communication between you, the facility, and the compliance person as you can Lana. Even when I was out of the country and was worried about a hurricane ruining arriving to the hospital for the first day of orientation, Lana eased my worries and contacted the hospital to let them know I might be delayed.

    107. Lana is incredible. She is an excellent communicator and she listens to your needs. She will always go above and beyond for you. I trust her so much, and she has been so reliable, kind, and fun to work with. The best recruiter I have ever worked with!

    108. TaleMed is a good company to work with. I’ve worked with other companies in the past and so far my experience with them has been favorable. I would recommend this agency.

    109. Lana @ Talemed is an awesome recruiter. She really cares about what�s safe and best for you. She doesn�t pressure you into choosing something that you don�t really want to do and she works around your preferences. She keeps in touch throughout assignments and makes sure everything goes well. She�s great at advocating for her nurses as well. When I first had my phone conversation with Lana, she made me feel very comfortable and told me all about the ins and out about travel nursing. She�s great at what she does and is honest. I am proud to call her my recruiter! Thanks Lana.

    110. Talemed has been great.found us an assignment that was exactly what we were looking for and also helped with housing in a difficult housing area.

    111. Noah is an excellent recruiter. He always went to bat for me when needed. Overall, I haven�t had any issues and I look forward to working with him.

    112. My recruiter Chris Dietrich is very informative and supportive! He helped me get an amazing assignment and is always available when I need to chat. I highly recommended TaleMed!

    113. I’ve been with this agency for a few months now and I have yet to be disappointed. My recruiter, Bailee, is sincerely one of the best people – she is both professional and personable. I appreciate the constant line of communication and if there is a question that she doesn’t have the answer to, she will consult her resources and get back to me in a timely manner.
      I also have to appreciate the individuals who work in the background because they too also make sure everything runs efficiently.
      I love this agency.

    114. I am impressed by the accessibility of my recruiter. I appreciate that he does whatever he can to help me and takes my suggestions or recommendations seriously.

    115. They can offer nurses better pay rates, nuch less than what�s advertised. I also feel pay dates should be switched back to Fridays.

    116. I truly believe Lana puts her travel nurses first and has their best interest at heart. I trust her with these decisions that effect my family. She is a great recruiter and friend!8

    117. Lana has been my recruiter for a couple of years. She�s wonderful , kind, reliable, has my back always. Friendly and I can talk to her about anything. Love my Lana

    118. Lana is a great recruiter, she cares about your well being, is honest, and is always making sure your placement fits your needs and your happy

    119. Lana Kimmich is an exceptional recruiter. As a first time travel RN, she has made my first assignment a breeze. She is open, honest, and really makes you feel like one of her valued nurses. Thanks again Lana, looking forward to more assignments with you.

    120. My recruiter was great lots of energy and a hard worker. I had a lot of trouble finding my assignment in a desired location but the company it�s self is well run.

    121. So far my experience has been really good, I feel my agent Lana, meets all my needs and tried to find me the best opportunities to succeed and works with me when I want anything. Already recommended to several people due to her skills and abilities as a straight forward agent.

    122. I have worked with multiple agencies over the last 3 years but keep coming back to TaleMed. Brad has been by my side since day one. No hard feelings if I ever went anywhere else. He truly cares about your best interest. Everyone should want to work for a company like TaleMed! They have a great referral program, and they truly care about you as a person.

    123. As a first time traveling nurse, my recruiter Lana has been with me all the way. She carefully listened to my needs and executed my demands. I didn�t find any surprises because she made sure she went over detailed information with me.

    124. I have traveled with Talemed for 3years, and have never had any problems. I would highly recommend this agency!

    125. My recruiter Lana goes above and beyond for her nurses. I can always count on her. Talemed is a great company that truly cares for their employees

    126. My recruiter Lana goes above and beyond for her nurses. I can always count on her. Talemed is a great company that truly cares for their employees

    127. My recruiter has made me feel as though I am his only travel nurse. He is dependable and honest. I extended my contract but the hospital changed vendors. I thought I was going to have to change travel companies but Talemed went above and beyond to make sure I wouldn’t lose my contract or my recruiter. My recruiter at Talemed has made the transition from being a staff nurse to a travel nurse very easy.

    128. I can�t say enough good things about this agency! All of the staff from payroll to compliance to the recruiters are friendly, nice, and go out of their way to help and guide you during the travel experience. Pay checks are every week and on time. They have a lot of awesome jobs available and the recruiters really go out of their way to get you the assignment you want! I would 100% reccomend this agency and will continue to work for them- shout out to my recruiter Eric Enz for being very personable,helpful, and a pleasure to work with!

    129. From the moment I connected with Paul at TaleMed I knew I found the agency I wanted to work with. I was able to get my first contract within a week and it was exactly where I wanted to be. I’m looking to sign my fourth contract now and have never considered working with anyone else. TaleMed definitely treats their employees well. The company has taken me to dinner and sent me gifts for my birthday and Christmas. Paul routinely checks up me throughout my assignments and he has always been easy to reach. I know I’m being offered top pay and that he truly cares about my satisfaction with every assignment.

    130. My recruiter at Talemed, Patrick Exner, has been absolutely phenomenal and has helped make my first travel assignment a breeze!

    131. Love my recruiter! She is on top of everything! No complaints here and nothing but great things to say about her!

    132. Lana is wonderful, I felt like she was my great friend throughout the assignment. She genuinely cared about me and my travel RN experience. It�s doubtful that I will do any more travel RN assignments in the near future but if I do, I would love to use this company!

    133. Lana Kimmich is an honest, efficient, professional, timely, absolute work horse of a recruiter. She�s a straight shooter and will even tell you if a contract isn�t in your best interest. I have come to trust and rely on Lana�s professional opinions, because she is in tune with the market and consistently scrupulous. In short, she�s the best thing since sliced bread and Peyton Manning, and I look forward to many more contracts with her as my support.

    134. Ryan Rosinski is a very personable recruiter. He doesn’t go overboard with contacting you, but gets a feel for how much communication you want on a weekly/monthly basis. He supports my professional goals and helps maximize the freedom that travel nursing brings. Absolutely recommend the company and Ryan personally as a recruiter.

    135. Ryan Rosinski is Great to work with and always there to answer questions, get me the answers and help I need and ALWAYS trying to find me the perfect Assignment

    136. Had a great first assignment with Talemed. My Recruiter Noah Zimmerlin is very personable and checks in weekly. Would definitely recommend this company and recruiter, sometimes it’s worth making a little less to work for a company that things are on time organized and someone who cares about you as a person and not a number.

    137. This is my very first travel assignment with this company, and I couldn’t be happier with everything! My recruiter, Kyle Donovan, is such a great representation of the quality of customer care and appreciation. He is a wonderful asset for the TaleMed corporation!

    138. My recruiter Kyle, was very patient and helpful. He helped my get the assignment I wanted. Even though it took months, he stuck with me.

    139. Brittany Chalupa was my recruiter for one year while I traveled with Talemed. I highly recommend her as a recruiter. I also recommend Talemed as a company to travel with. Big enough to have access to jobs and small enough to make you feel valued.

    140. Ryan is not only my recruiter but my friend. Being able to trust your recruiter is priceless. We are a great team.

    141. I am working my second assignment with Talemed. No issues and my recruiter is knowledgeable. No issues so far.

    142. TaleMed has been great! My recruiter Nick has been very knowledgeable, efficient, and easy to work with. Would recommend!

    143. TaleMed has been a fantastic company to work for thus far and I will absolutely recommend and continue to utilize them in the future

    144. Talemed has been an exceptional company to work for. I have been working with Eric as my recruiter and he is on his game! He always makes himself available if I have questions and gets back to me quickly.

      Also this company�s benefits are amazing! They have guaranteed hours which not all companies have.

      I would recommend this company to any travel nurse!

    145. Talemed is a wonderful agency! Recruiters are so personable and supportive through tough assignments. Would highly recommend.

    146. I very much enjoy working with Talemed. My recruiter checks in on me weekly and encourages me to voice my opinions on performance of Talemed. My only complaint is reimbursements on licenses/tests/certifications etc are not paid for until you complete your assignment in said state.

    147. Ryan Mummert is a great recruiter; very down to earth and honest. He took his time explaining the basics of travel nursing and what to expect from the relationship between traveler and agency. I highly recommend Talemed as an agency.

    148. This is my first time to travel and I love it thanks to Talemed and to Ryan my recruiter! The entire team there is fantastic!!!!

    149. Everyone at the agency is knowledgeable and thorough no matter what capacity they are involved. They give plenty of notice about renewal deadlines. I have been with them for 4 years and wouldn�t change anything!

    150. I really enjoyed working with this Agency, however my original recruiter (Ariana) left and I wonder if my next experience will be equally as good because she was honestly the best thing about the company. She worked super hard to find me and my friend the best assignment possible and was always reachable and reliable, so hopefully my new recruiter will be the same.

    151. I’ve worked a few assignments with TaleMed, and this is the agency I recommend to everyone. They offer great pay and I genuinely feel they are an honest, reputable group. This is an agency that gives back to their community through frequent volunteer events and missions. Their compliance department can be exceptionally frustrating to work with at times- but sadly, that’s not completely out of the norm. Paychecks are always accurate and on time.

    152. I’ve worked as a travel nurse for over two years. I started the job with Talemed and once used another agency strictly for assignment selection (I work in pretty limited specialty and required a limited geographical area). I recommend my recruiter, Allan SanDiego, to all of my friends and coworkers who are looking to get into the field. The company is important, but a good recruiter is what will make or break your assignment. From the beginning Allan has been nothing but professional, courteous, and reliable. He cares about his nurses and strives to be the best resource available. My experience with them has been top notch.

    153. In the world of travel nursing, those qualities that matter in a company, can be found at Talemed. From the staff that strive to go beyond, to the snail mail goodies, you always feel appreciated! Nursing is a field that receives little praise, so having those frequent reminders makes a world of difference. Travel with Talemed and you�ll be guaranteed hours, have high paying positions and never receive an incorrect pay check!

    154. This is my first travel assignment and I’ve been really happy with my experience. My recruiter has been great, checks in with me regularly, gave me lots of options, and didn’t pressure me to take an assignment until I found the right one. I don’t use their insurance, so I can’t evaluate that area. I’ve been happy with my pay rate and housing allowance.

    155. TaleMed has been the only travel agency I�ve been working with due to feeling very comfortable with them. My recuriter, Ryan Mummert, works hard to find the right assignment for me and responds to any questions I have quickly. Any issues that I have are addressed efficiently and appropriately.

      Insurance is affordable but ends whenever my assignment ends, it would be more convienent if there was a longer grace period.

      I had several issues regarding paycheck accuracy, but they were resolved quickly and to my satisfaction.

    156. I love my agency! Jeremy Anderson is a great recruiter, I�ll never use anyone else. He�s knowledgeable, trustworthy, always works to give me the assignment I want at a great rate, great at communicating and explaining things, and works hard to get to know you as a person. Awesome, caring company.

    157. I feel extremely valued as a traveler under Talemed. My recruiter with Talemed is a good friend now and always has my best interest at heart.

    158. On my first contract with Talemed. Everything is great so far. Brad B helped get me to where I wanted to go! I was referred to him from a longtime traveler.

    159. Recruiters are incompetent. The are not knowledgeable, provide you inaccurate information regarding an assignment. Payroll ALWAYS claimed not to receive my timecard EVERY WEEK, despite being sent early and or on time. Super annoying. Save yourself the headache!

    160. I have had a few speed bumps with Talemed but they are either quick to rectify the issue or support me to the best of their abilities to get through it. Sometimes I have difficulty understanding what paperwork is expected of me because email communications can be confusing, but they are easy to reach and will clarify. The insurance only costs me $15/week and is day 1 eligible, but I do wish it extended beyond the end of my contract date if I had another contract signed like the old insurance used to. I think the pay is competitive and I have not had to take a contract with another company due to pay or job availability. My recruiter is ridiculously easy to reach any day of the week.

    161. I have been traveling with Talemed for 2 years and have no plans to look for a different agency! They work hard to ensure I find the assignment in the area and type of hospital I prefer, take great care of all of my concerns while on assignment and are supportive and honest throughout the entire process. I recommend them to anyone I meet who is interested in travel nursing.

    162. I started off to a rough start with the whole “travel nurse” experience. After a first bad experience (with a different company)- TaleMed scooped me right up under their wing and made me interested in being a travel nurse again. My recruiter is the BEST, along with the other supportive staff that have been so helpful with any/all of my needs. They really go the extra mile to make sure you’re happy. My recruiter and I will chit-chat about other things not related to nursing. She is always there and puts my mind at ease!! I would recommend TaleMed to any nurse looking to travel!!

    163. Great company! I haven’t had any issues with my assignments so far and have a wonderful recruiter, Kate. She listens to what I want with my assignments and is quick to respond to emails and phone calls. Talemed is known for being a smaller company and you aren’t a number. I’ve been happy so far with them. They pay great, reimburse for almost everything and quick to respond. Only thing negative is they don’t cater their health insurance towards families or couple’s. It’s quite expensive but most agencies are that way.

    164. I�ve been with them for all 2 years I�ve been traveling and haven�t wavered. They are awesome. I get great locations and good pay everywhere I go. I feel 100% supported by this awesome team. Allan SanDiego is a fantastic recruiter!

    165. My recruiter Allan is fantastic. Gets back to me in a timely manner. My paychecks have always been correct and always on time. I just signed another contract with them. I am looking forward to signing many more!

    166. The Hospital I was working let me go prior to the end of my 13 week contract after an employee I was replacing was returning from FMLA. My contract meant nothing. It was suddenly null and void. I was left with a lease of an apartment and no contact with the agency. I no longer received payment and I was stuck. Even after the Director of Nursing told me “I did nothing wrong” I had no money and no where to go.

    167. I love John Hill, my recruiter. Honest and easy to work with. I know there are nurses in the same assignment as me with different agencies that are making 2-5 dollars more an hour more than me, a little disheartening. Bottom line, I love this agency and will advocate for myself to earn a better wage in future assignments. This is my first so I am new to traveling, however, I do like Talemed so far and will remain with my recruiter. Loyalty means a lot to me.

    168. My travel agent has become a trusted friend, and I think he’d say the same. Excellent team they have there!

    169. This Is my first time as a travel nurse, so I am very new to everything, but My Recruiter Paul has done his very best to make sure I understand everything and that I am comfortable and satisfied with my assignment.

    170. new to talemed some some answers are only accurate to this point. I do sometimes feel like they don’t answer calls when they know i have a question and they don’t have an answer

    171. I don’t like to wait till the last minute for things and I found out about 3 days before assignment that I needed an additional TB test, and it was not flu season and I was required to get a flu shot and I was not reimbursed for these items, and then my start date was pushed.

    172. I highly recommend TaleMed. I am preparing to take an assignment with them after travelling with others previously. My recruiter, Ryan M, is awesome. He has worked tirelessly to find me an assignment that works for me. Even while I was on assignment with another agency, he called to check in on me and see how things were going. They have been great. I am looking forward to travelling and working with them. They are very concerned and caring when it comes to taking care of their nurses.

    173. I love my recruiter, Jeremy Anderson. He always places me exactly where I want to go and meets all my needs. He really makes an effort to get to know me and makes me feel like he’s working hard for me.

    174. Has been very understanding and offers good sound advise. I would recommend other nurses who want someone on there side to pick the one that works with me. He is the BEST.

    175. I’m on my first assignment and have extended for another. So far my recruiter has been very personable and helpful, calling just to check in. Paychecks have been on time and everything has been smooth. I am very happy so far.

    176. TaleMed is the first travel nursing company I have worked for. They have been amazing so far. My recruiter Noah is the sole reason I chose TaleMed. He is honest and he treats me like a person instead of a client. I would gladly recommend others to use TaleMed.

    177. Talemed has made my first experience with travel nursing exceptional! I would recommend to all nurses to work for them! Everyone goes above and beyond to be helpful! Can’t say enough good things about them!A

    178. My recruiter was subpar housing manager was subpar credentialar subpar everything about this agency was subpar. They tell you about bonuses if you extend and then the recruiter says something entirely different when you do extend. Housing manager did a horrible job to include not getting back with the landlord when she wanted to extend the stay. Then he says nothing to you about it until you accidentally stumble upon it then you find out and then instead of owning responsibility he makes up a story to cover himself should I go on. No please never ever sign with this company. The credentialer when asked why this or that is needed she says because the hospital said so. You have to get answers from other places. Everything is always a out and out total lie about this place.

    179. Fantastic agency, only thing to change would be if I could get reimbursed for labwork etc right away instead of having to wait till after the contract.

    180. Starting as a new travel RN, TaleMed, especially my recruiter, has been absolutely amazing in regards to helping me every step of the way navigate this confusing career change. They are always available in a reasonable amount of time if I have an issue and are always on top of helping me find new, appropriate, assignments that help me reach my goals and they help me keep on track of other important paperwork such as keeping my licenses up to date/ in compliance. My recruiter is invested in how I’m doing and checking up on me at least once a week which is nice because it me feel supported as opposed to simply a means to paycheck.

    181. I can not put into words how much I love my recruiter!!! He has made my transition to Travel Nursing a great experience and goes above and beyond to be supportive, helpful and available.
      Highly recommend!!

    182. this is my first assignment as a traveller and it overall has been a positive experience. I feel a tad naive and am learning to negotiate and understand how things work. Talemed and my recruiter have been very supportive. I do feel like I have to be assertive and ask for what I feel need in terms of $ and benefits and not just settle for what they offer. Talking with other travelers has been very helpful. I think all companies work this way..

    183. Talemed has been great for me as I start my career as a travel nurse. My recruiter, Kyle, has been really nice and patient with me.

    184. I recommend Talemed to all of my nurse-friends and other nurses in the field. They are professional, reliable, and always helpful. Travis is my recruiter and he always goes above and beyond to make sure all is perfect for the assignment. I could not be more happy with my decision to be a travel nurse for this company.

    185. Kristen Bowles at TaleMed is a truly amazing recruiter, she always has my back and I would never work with another recruiter! Keep up the Great work TaleMed

    186. My recruiter Kristen is great! She is very friendly and cares about you and getting the job you want, even if that means having to go to another company if they do not have that certain positions. They work to get you the best possible rate one deserves!

    187. I really enjoy working with my recruiter Kyle, he’s awesome at assisting with finding assignments for me and making sure my pay rate is fair!

    188. If a problem every arose at an assignment, I would call my recruiter and he would handle everything. My recruiter contacts me after my first to see how I’m doing. I feel like part of a family and not a cash cow. I absolutely love Talemed! I’ve tried other agencies and just felt that they didn’t care what I wanted; they just wanted to make money off of me.

    189. Travel nursing is great. Talemed has many options. The payments always arrived on time . The recruiters work hard to get you what you want. They listen to you .

    190. I love Talemed I’ve been with them for over two years because I don’t trust anyone else. My recruiter Jeremy Anderson has been excellent and gotten me assignments exactly where I want to be and for great rates. He’s honest, he always calls before following up with emails, and I can tell her really cares about his job. I highly recommend Talemed

    191. My first assignment was ok. When I accepted the second one I was running into all kinds of roadblocks personally. My car was hit and delay time to getting it back was extended past my contract, ,1200 miles from home. My daughter diagnosed with cancer, deaths in the family. I was trying to cope with this and fulfill the competencies for the next assignment and was threatened with ‘fees’ if I didn’t do everything they wanted . I didn’t even have a way home. I don’t like being threatened.

    192. Talamed has been very friendly, accommodating, and supportive during my first travel assignment! I will definitely continue to use them.

    193. I was extremely nervous about starting to do travel nursing. It was very overwhelming to even choose an agency, not to mention all of the details that go with traveling itself. However my recruiter, Kyle has made things very easy and stress free. I am looking forward to starting my first assignment.

    194. everyone has been super helpful with me through my 1st contract and with negotiating my 2nd one. Kyle has been great! very friendly and just awesome with anything ive asked!

    195. My recruiter Noah always returns my phone calls and answers questions in a timely manner. I feel very comfortable to ask him any questions I have. Steve has also been very good to answer my questions in a timely fashion. I will be telling all my coworkers about the great experience I’ve had working with TALMED!

    196. The company is very kind and accommodating. The 401K does not start until one year with the company. The prices are competitive to an extent, but less than quite a few other places. My recruiter is so kind and helpful though. I would definitely recommend them.

    197. My recruiter checks in at least once a week, and is always available if I need something. He is quick to respond to any concerns, and has always worked hard to get me the contracts I want.

    198. My recruiter, Noah, was very friendly and helpful; especially when my first assignment had some bumps in the road. He is always available when I had questions or just needed to vent. Would 100% recommend this company and recruiter.

    199. I really like my recruiter but the benefits package seems awful and they don’t seem to have as many assignments available as some of the larger companies. I really wish they had more online availability.

    200. New with the company, love them so far. Left Valley Staffing to make the switch during my assignment, TaleMed make the switch seamless! Kyle McCray is an awesome recruiter.

    201. My recruiter Kristen has been absolutely fantastic! She is easy to get a hold of, follows through with what she says, advocates for me on my behalf and is so warm and friendly! She is a gem and I love working with her. Everyone else I’ve been in contact with at TaleMed are friendly, professional, and very prompt as well. Choose TaleMed!

    202. Kate from talemed was my first recruiter and she has been wonderful; I don’t feel like I was taken advantage of and I feel like she was upfront and honest and patient with all of my stuff to get started.

    203. TaleMed was my first choice for a travel company and I have to say I couldn’t have chosen wiser. They’re not only efficient but funny, kind and caring. I’m on my third assignment including 2 extensions and couldn’t be happier. I tell them where I want to go and they not only find me a contract but always a great contract to boot. I’m Team TaleMed.

    204. Honest about hospital’s work environment, my recruiter always honest about pay and honors his verbal agreements as well. I highly recommend this agency.

    205. Communication seems to be lost between the different departments. I felt badgered about credentialing. I think there is false advertisement on the website promising high pay but when I comes down to it, you only get what they put on the website after you get the housing allowance, if you choose it but you still have to use for housing so it shouldn’t even be considered part of your income. I’m only going to continue traveling with them because I’m already set up and I don’t want to go through the process again. I would not say I’m satisfied with the company.

    206. Talemed actually treats you like a person and they want to make you happy. They truly want to stick up for their nurses and get them the assignment of their dreams. They are all very efficient, thorough, and friendly. Their pay is awesome, along with their benefits. I could not see myself with a different company.

    207. Great company that works hard for you and with you. Kyle at Talemed, made the transition easy and was helpful every step of the way.

    208. Currently on my third contract with Talemed and have no plans to switch. My recruiter Allan is fantastic! The entire team at Talemed has been friendly, efficient, easy to get a hold of and have questions answered and make you feel like a valued nurse instead of just a name on the payroll. They also took a lot of time to help me and walk me through so many questions in preparation for my first travel assignment. Would definitely recommend this agency.

    209. Great agency, Alan is my recruiter and makes me feel like a person. They’re invested in their travelers and make them feel important

    210. I have never traveled with Talemed before, but, based on their service to me, I fully plan to work with them in the Spring, when I travel again in 2017.

    211. I was recommended to TaleMed by an experienced traveler. This is my 1st travel assignment and honestly, could not have had things go smoother! Not only is my recruiter supportive and accessible, but the whole team!

    212. Brad is amazing!!! I have worked with TaleMed for 3 assignments. He is always available and answers my questions. I would recommend TaleMed to everyone who is looking for a company that really appreciates you as a nurse!

    213. So far everything has been great with my first assignment with TaleMed. Hopefully it’ll continue when it comes time for my next contract and they’re able to place me where I want to go.

    214. Brad is a pompous frat boy. If you have an issue, his response is cocky and to snicker. I don’t find him professional at all. Who knows, maybe the whole recruiting team isn’t like that, I would hope not since there are good reviews of Talemed out there. Steve and Wes, who aren’t recruiters, are absolutely amazing. When talking to them, they sound intelligent, and are extremely professional and respectful.

    215. I did not actually work with Talemed. I had done extensive research into many agencies and choose them to be mine. However, in 5 weeks time, they did not even manage to get me an interview. They lied to me repeatedly for 3 weeks saying they were working on it and submitting me to jobs. Then after 3 weeks came back and said they couldn’t submit me until my paperwork was done (it had been done the entire 3 weeks). It just hadn’t come through on their side. So, obviously they lied when they said they were waiting to hear back from facilities.
      I switched in a hurry and Aureus had me interviewed and accepted a position in 5 days.
      They also repeatedly didn’t have any assignments in areas of interest to me. I was giving them very broad areas to work with, such as any coastal area of Florida.

    216. Very good travel company. Has stood by me in the good times and the bad times. Has been very honest when I’m trying to find assignments. Love working with them. Will probably never need to work with another. Love the recruiters I’ve had.

    217. My recruiters were super friendly and very helpful. They responded to my emails quickly and were always happy to answer my questions. They worked with me to get the assignment I wanted.

    218. Talemed was never bothersome with amount of calls/emails/etc about joining their company. Ryan gave me lots of good advice to use as a traveling nurse as a whole whether i chose Talemed or not. Talemed was very up front with everything required. Nothing hidden. Highly reccomend to others.

    219. No information was given to me about the facility other than the name of the hospital from my agency. Everything I found out about the hospital was on my own time and spoke with the VP of nursing at the hospital to ask questions. However, the VP did not give fully honest answers and did not seem very knowledgable about the floor and nursing as as whole. If I had no travel experience what so ever, I would feel extremely unprepared.

    220. I have only been a travel nurse for a short time, but so far my experience with Talemed and travel nursing has been really great!

    221. I have had an excellent experience so fat with Talemed. This is my first assignment and I am looking forward to many more with this company.

    222. So far so good! Haven’t begun my first travel assignment yet, but so far they have been extremely helpful setting everything up.

    223. Talemed has been a fantastic agency to work with. All employees I have had contact with have been knowledgeable, prompt, professional, and honest. I did have one issue with an extension of my contract, and multiple people worked hard to get things corrected to ensure I did not miss any work. They have made my experience great!

    224. Overall this company is great and I definitely recommend it. Recruiters take the time to get to know you and aren’t annoying by calling constantly. My recruiter is there when I need him but not overbearing. Pay is great, and they get you what you want!

    225. Ryan M is my recruiter he is awesome! He listened to what i wanted in a job and made sure i got it! Still checks on me know that i am on assignment as well!

    226. I have had great experience with Talemed. Not only my recruiter, the other staff members in the office also went out of their way to help whenever it was required.

    227. Good company overall with no major problems. When issues came up they worked to resolve them. Pay raises upon resigning were low and at times, it was difficult to get info about future assignments at requested destinations, and esoteric paychecks are the complaints.

    228. Just finished my first assignment, and everything went really well! They got me into the unit I wanted, in the hospital I wanted with no problems. During the assignment, my recruiter called every week to check on how things were going. Definitely will be continuing with TaleMed and Noah!

    229. my recruiter has been amazing, very helpful with my first assignment. were a few times i had trouble getting in touch with my compliance coordinator but other than that everything has been great!

    230. Complete lack of professionalism from this agency. I do not recommend them as they do not disclose information truthfully and behave unprofessionally when they get caught lying.

    231. I have just transitioned to Talmed from another company and so far I am beyond happy with my change. Ryan Mummert My recruiter has gone above and beyond to help in any way he can. From work to personal life you can tell that he truly cares about his travel nurses.

    232. My agent was very personable, friendly and stayed in contact thruought the assignment. Had a death in the family at beginning of contract and was very helpful at arranging time off I needed, and allowed me to make up days later.

    233. My recruiter, Ryan, has been great since day one! As a new traveler, he did a fantastic job answering all of my questions and making the transition seamless. This company offers everything on my must-have list. I would definitely recommend them to other travelers.

    234. My recruiter Ryan Mummert is awesome! He actually listens which is some times rare amongst recruiters! He didn’t try to sell me on the high paying jobs when he knew the position I actually wanted. As a matter of face, he put in extra time to make sure my profile was done quickly so it could be hand delivered to the nursing supervisor when TaleMed’s sales rep was in town!! Can’t safe enough good things about him and this company. They have amazing assignments especially if you’re looking on the East coast.

    235. I’m an ER nurse with 5 years experience. This is my first time traveling. I keep hearing I need to shop around with traveling agencies but with Talemed I dont want to and there’s simply no need, because they are the best! I feel 100% supported. I feel like I could call anytime and they would handle anything that came there way in a professional & respectful manor.

    236. Talemed is a pleasure to work with. From recruiter, to completing paperwork, and even met the director of client services during my assignment. They have been honest, professional, and always respond to my inquires in a timely manner. My recruiterecruiter, Allan, has continued to follow up with me regularly as well. The regular follow up and even meeting in person makes me feel like they value me as an employee and I can trust them should I ever need anything. It’s been great working with Talemed!

    237. Great company, insurance doesn’t start until the first day of the month after your start date. Very accessible, friendly and accommodating.

    238. TaleMed has been a great company to work for! I don’t feel like a number, my recruiter is always accessible, every concern I have had has been taken care of, I can’t find a single thing to complain about and look forward to many assignments in the future with them!

    239. This company tried to make me do pre-hospital education for free, which is a violation of US Dept of Labor laws. My recruiter, Jeremy Anderson, would get whiney if I didn’t agree with everything he said, then start talking in circles, then start getting condescending and obnoxious. If you look at their website, most of the recruiters appear to be overgrown frat boys, not healthcare professionals and certainly not adults who communicate in a professional manner. I would never work for this company again and I would never recommend them.

    240. I chose to work with this agency after seeing it highly reviewed on multiple sites. I’m not sure who is writing these positive reviews because they are dishonest and I was lied to mutiple times. They are not supportive at all.I actually did all the leg work to get the contract. They had me contact HR and set things up because they lied and said they had a contract with the facility when in fact, they did not. The facility signed a contract to work with them because they wanted me. I talked to the agency management about my concerns but they brushed those off and sided with my recruiter. They act more like car salesmen at this agency.

    241. My recruiter Ryan is absolutely amazing. I love that he took time to get to know me as a person rather than a number and pushed to get me the best!!

    242. I was told through this company I was able to get my compliance testing done by a specific date, I had told them prior to signing the contract when I was able to get these tests completed and they had agreed to the date. Then they terminated my contract stating that I didn’t have the tests completed in time when I had appointments made and to top it off they charged me a termination fee and close to $4,000 worth of charges to the facility that terminated my contract. I have been arguing with HR about these fees and state that the companies lack of communication with the facility should not be at my dispense. Needless to say, if you go with this company be careful they’ll turn their backs on you quickly when things are their fault.

    243. I have only done one assignment with them so far and I have had all positive experiences so far. I would definitely recommend them to another travel nurse.

    244. TaleMed has made my travel experience wonderful. My recruiter Kyle Donovan is amazing. I will definitely continue traveling with this company.

    245. Love this company. Steve Williams works so hard for me. I left for 1 assignment for job location reason and went back right away. I will stay with them until I’m done traveling.

    246. I couldn’t say more about how wonderful my experience with Talemed has been. I’ve been more than happy with them and look forward to many more years with them

    247. Good company. They have been able to find me an assignment in all the places I have wanted to go. Pay check is frequently inaccurate and benefits are not the best (insurance is not 1st day and 401k must be with company for 1 year).

    248. The only reason I would consider changing companies would be for better insurance. The United Healthcare insurance is no where near as good as I would like, especially when you factor in the cost for adding family members. It would be nice if their PTO accrual began after your first assignment with them, rather than kicking in after a year.

    249. My first experience traveling was with a company who shall not be named but it was horrible! I decided to contact TaleMed about a year ago and it was a breathe of fresh air compared to the “other” agency. Kristen B., my recruiter is knowledgeable, kind, considerate and caring to my needs. Response time with her is usually a couple hours to 1/2 a day depending on how busy she is, which in comparison to the “other” agency I waited 2 or 3 days. TaleMed and Kristen B. so far have lived up to my expectations and I would highly recommend giving them a try! Constructive criticism for TaleMed as a whole I suggest that you look into raising your housing and travel reimbursement pay scales. I’m not sure what data these are ruled by but I think it is old data. Thanks! Joseph L., CST

    250. I have had good experience with Talemed. My recruiter, Jeremy, has been great. When I have had to go home a couple of times due to family emergencies, there were no questions asked. The shifts would be made up, and it would be worked out. No problem. I appreciate that kind of support.

    251. This was my first assignment as a traveler and I was very nervous but Liz Maffey from Talemed has been awesome. She worked so hard to get me the exact location I wanted and is always so quick to respond to emails and calls. She even gave me her personal cell for after hours. Great experience, I have no plans of working with anyone else.

    252. About to start my first assignment in the next couple weeks. Thus far, my recruiter has been great. Compared to other agencies I have signed with, other agencies had me supply vaccinations and documents right after I signed up. Talemed kinda had me submit everything after I secured a job. So, I do feel rushed to supply all vaccinations and documents. They were able to get me a job just days after getting my new RN license! Not necessarily in my preferred city, but I’m happy with where I’m going for my first assignment.

    253. Everyone at TaleMed has been very friendly and helpful! They made the transition into the travel industry very easy as this is my first assignment. Kristen is my recruiter and I am able to reach her 24/7 on her cell if I need her. I highly recommend TaleMed especially for first time travelers as the recruiters are very knowledgeable about the industry and really want to help educate you.

    254. My recruiter Liz Maffey is AWESOMESAUCE!!! If things go wrong she fixes it quick. Can’t say much for their housing, there housing people pretty much don’t have a clue and DO NOT try and bargain with housing/hotels etc. But company has been very flexible with my scheduling which I love.

    255. My recruiter, Liz Maffey, is fantastic. She answered all my question and them some about travel nursing. She is knowledgeable of travel friendly facilities to secure good job placement. I love my job! Thanks Liz!

    256. Horrible I would never recommend this company to anyone. Low pay compared to others. Travel reimburse over 13 weeks? Housing issues. Alot of miscommunication and no responsibility. And no contact from my recruiter to actually show some interest. Definitely does not care. I have a few other travel friend having lower pay issues not 1-2 dollars either… their only concern is signing a traveler. Nothing after that. Dont even answer calls. Pay was wrong, no one adjusted it

    257. Kristen Bowles is my Recruiter and she has been awesome, as a first time traveler. Talemed made the onboarding process super simple and very streamlined and efficient. I was working with another company also, that was much more difficult. Talemed is clearly the best for a reason. Kristen and Willie got me the same day I was submitted to my first assignment. Everyone I have talked to at Talemed have been amazing. They definitely set the bar high.

    258. I have had a nice experience with this company. I traveled with a different company for my first assignment, and it was not a nice experience. I was then referred to TaleMed, and have been with them ever since. Steve is my recruiter, and he knows the industry well. He took the time to explain the travel nursing industry to me. I can always get ahold of him, and I feel that he truly cares for his nurses. Highly recommend TaleMed.

    259. Talemed has been absolutely wonderful to work with. My recruiter is very on top of things, listens to my preferences and is always quick to respond to my questions. She has eased me into the world of travel nursing and made me feel comfortable. The travel company makes the experience very easy for me because of all the help they offer. I would highly recommend Talemed.

    260. I have been working with Talemed for the past two years. My recruiter’s name is Steve Williams. Steve is an incredible recruiter. One thing I really appreciate about Steve is that he takes the time to get to know his nurses and he really cares about finding you the perfect placement! Other companies I have spoken with lack the personal connection I feel like Steve and Talemed provide. Steve makes himself available 24/7 and truly cares about the industry and those he works with. I highly recommend Talemed. Talk to Steve! He is the best!

    261. I was a first time traveler and I did not know much about the industry. My recruiter, Steve Williams, did a fabulous job in taking the time to inform me of the ins and outs of travel nursing. I had spoken to a lot of travel companies before choosing to work with Talemed. Steve was by far the most knowledgeable person I spoke with in the industry and Talemed was the most desirable company to work with. Steve is the best. I have traveled with him for four year and will continue with Talemed until I decide to no longer travel. Steve knows the industry and is great. I highly recommend him, and Talemed.

    262. Upon arrival to my assignment (2600 miles away from home) my hotel arrangements supposedly made weeks in advance were nonexistent and I slept in my car my first night. My housing was unsafe (like people literally put their hands on me) and it took weeks to move me. I called the emergency line three times during my stay after hours. It never worked. Not once. No one ever returned my messages. I slept in my car on three different occasions on this assignment because of housing issues. My recruiter rarely answered his cell or emails. I messaged him on his personal Facebook once during an emergency (was kicked out of a hotel for non-payment (I took company housing)) and that was the only way I was able to contact him. I didn’t even get a paycheck for the first three or four weeks. I think the excuse was something about a college kid doing payroll. I can’t even remember now. The hospital TaleMed took me to was WONDERFUL. I loved them then and still keep in touch with all of them. TaleMed came highly recommended to me and I see that they have excellent reviews from other travelers. So I’m not sure where the breakdown was for me. I was an experienced traveler when I went with them. And they were hands down the worst experience of my life, company only because I loved my hospital and had no issues there. I can’t recommend them though. And I actually warn other travelers about them all the time. Every time a nurse comes to me with questions about traveling I always start out with “Well first, never EVER travel with TaleMed.”

    263. The experience I had with this company was amazing! As a first time traveler I was a little nervous but my recruiter Steve Williams was incredible! He was always there when I needed him and made me feel like a part of TaleMed from the start!

    264. My recruiter was AMAZING! I felt taken care of every step of the way. I would highly recommend Talemed, and would use them in any future assignments myself.

    265. Great to work with! I have nothing but great things to say about my recruiter and his enthusiasm for helping me get an assignment

    266. Steve Williams my recruiter was awesome for the assignment I did for them in Colorado. My unit had closed at my permanent home base and they enabled me to earn a salary and experience the freedom of a travel assignment . I met some good friends and had a wonderful experiance with them . I’m currently retired after 42 years of nursing

    267. This is my first travel assignment, so I was a little nervous to begin with. I have to say my experience with my recruiter, Jeremy, has been awesome. I do feel that he looks out for my needs/wants in a contract. I feel that he took into consideration that I am new to traveling and eased me into the process. My experience with Talemed has been professional, and I feel my recruiter has been up front with me about contracts. I look forward to my continued relationship with Talemed.

    268. Steve Williams was my recruiter and I can’t say enough good about my experience. This was my first travel experience and I was guided and supported the entire time. Communication was clear and continuous throughout each assignment. Steve pushed and worked daily to get me assignments and always kept me up to date. When I chose to find my own housing and screwed up royally, Karen stayed after hours to get me and my family into another site that evening. Any other person I had contact with at Talemed were so polite and helpful. I felt listened to and felt like they knew who I was. I was never just a number to anyone. Had I not found my dream job in my dream location (actually at the hospital where I had my first travel assignment) I would still be traveling today and will likely return once the kids are grown. Steve even helped me with an issue well after my traveling had stopped. I can only hope that Steve and everyone else will still be at Talemed. Every chance I get, I tell other nurses of my great experience with Steve and Talemed. This company and its employees have made travel nursing a great experience I will always remember.

    269. Great company to travel with, i gave them what i was looking for and they searched for the right fit for me.
      Would work with them again, only negative review was the insurance benefits were very poor.

    270. My recruiter, Steve, was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He made my first travel assignment enjoyable and and stress free!

    271. Excellent company to work for. Stopped by on my way through and got to meet everyone. Everyone knows me by name and makes me feel like family. Will probably never change companys.

    272. In my experience as a traveling nurse Talemed was the most accommodating. My recruiter listened to my specific needs and adjusted my contract according. He was available every time I called day or night and handled situations in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Talemed. My suggestion to new travelers is to be reasonable but don’t settle. Adjust your contract to your needs….they need you as much as you need them so talk it out. A good recruiter will listen.

    273. I really enjoyed my time with Talemed. They gave me opportunities I didn’t think I’d ever have and experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime. I would recommend them to anybody. My recruiter Steve was great. We were besties by the second assignment. Very personable, always available, and very knowledgable and honest. It was greatly appreciated.

    274. Talented employees worked together great and found me the best contracts possible for the best pay. They were always friendly and had someone available 24/7 if there was ever a concern. Steve was my recruiter. He was super friendly and worked his butt off to get me the places I wanted along with the accommodations I needed to make my wife and dog as comfortable as possible. They’re who recommend to everyone who is looking to travel

    275. My recruiter Kristen has been a great help during my transition into travel nursing! She is very knowledgeable and always makes me feel like I am her top priority! TaleMed has been a wonderful company to work for and recommend them to everyone!

    276. Our experience with Talemed and our recruiter, Steve, was nothing but the best. Our assignments were exactly what we wanted and coordinated in a very smooth and organized fashion. We would recommend Talemed to any nurse considering traveling.

    277. I love my recruiter! She has been taking care of me for over 3years and I wouldn’t trade her for any other! She got me my dream job in AK and is always there when I need her! She is a friend and a great recruiter!

    278. Recruiter was very knowledgeable and always availabile…I would highly recommend this company to any traveler but escpecially a new traveler

    279. Talemed was great! My recruiter, Steve, was the best…always responded quickly and very friendly and knowledgeable!

    280. This agency takes advantage of new travelers! The person responsible for finding housing is a joke…she is obviously overwhelmed and unorganized. I chose housing provided and had to arrange everything myself! I had to pay the deposit for the housing and never gr it back and the company didnt care. They deducted from my paycheck because I had to stay in a hotel for a week until they found me a permanent place. Never heard from my recruiter. Terrible company!!

    281. I absolutely love my recruiter. They are always available whenever needed. they work very hard to get things done correctly and in a timely manner. If an issue arouse, they were on top of resolving it. The other staff are very adequate with making sure everything is up to date and they do so in advanced. I just love working for this company, everyone is caring, friendly, and compassionate.

    282. Always awesome! If I ever have a problem they are on it immediately and quickly work together to fix it. Love them and wouldn’t trace with anyone else!

    283. My recruiter was enthusiastic and diligent, friendly and attentive. Any problems were quickly solved / all questions answered within several hours. My recruiter was upfront about what was available and always left me with the impression that when nothing was available, he was looking constantly for something I might like in addition to constantly monitoring for my preferred locations and positions. When assignments came open, he rapidly and efficiently submitted my application and frequently I would get a call within hours if not a day or so from managers interested in interviewing me. I felt the entire company was catering to me personally on every single assignment – from my recruiter to payroll to the housing coordinator. It seems I had them on the phone for hours sometimes and it always felt like I had all the time I needed to get my questions answered. Great company and I would work for them again without question were I to return to travel nursing.

    284. Very good company. Always there when I need to call or need anything. Reliable in getting and keeping assignments.

    285. I have had an overall extremely positive experience w/ TaleMed. My recruiter is my singular contact and handles all my issues, so that I’m not on the phone tracking down 4 or 5 different people. Paychecks were prompt and accurate, and the one time there was a discrepancy it was corrected very promptly. I really enjoyed working with my recruiter, and he always aims to get me the assingments I want. My only problem is that a lot of assignments ask for ridiculous additional testing/labwork/physical exams. My agency did not have any resources in place to help me locate places to have this testing done (having to drive over an hour to find a place to do a specific kind of respiratory fit test, for example, despite already having been tested and fitted for my N95 mask for example, that my new assignment decided I needed at the last minute). They also would not reimburse any of the costs associated with this, so I ended up shelling out an additional $600 2 days before my new contract and my agency basically said, “If you can’t pay for it you’ll lose the contract.” It left a bad taste in my mouth, to be quite honest. But otherwise it’s been a great partnership and I feel my recruiter is a good guy who has my back. I would recommend TaleMed to new travel nurses as they’re willing to walk you through the processes and they’re fairly transparent in their business dealings with you. I’ve decided to stop traveling for now and return to staff nursing, but if I resume travel nursing in the future I would absolutely use TaleMed again. I trust them.

    286. I started with TaleMed and will end my career traveling with TaleMed. ALWAYS there for me. I left them once to get into a specific location but then came right back. Won’t make that mistake again. My recruiter, Steve, is THE BEST!!!!

    287. Talemed is a great, small-medium sized, company with fantastic recruiters and staffers. They know your name, preferences, and truly care about tailoring your assignment to your needs. Steve Williams is my recruiter and I have recommended him multiple times; he works incredibly hard and has actually become a friend through the travel nurse process! Compared to other big companies (not to be named),Talemed has been made travel nursing personal, efficient, and very satisfactory. Use them!!

    288. I cannot say enough good things about TaleMed. They have been exceptional, going above and beyond even when it wasn’t necessary. They’re the best!

    289. This is an excellent company! Everyone knows me by name when I call. My recruiter knows what type of assignments I want and where. He works hard to make sure I get the assignments I want with great pay. AWESOME group of people!!

    290. I got stuck in a scary situation on an assigment and this company backed me up 100% and got me out of there and onto a new assignment fast!

    291. Overall good company. Pay is decent but not what I would want/expect. Easy to get a hold of recruiter and doesnt have used sales man approach. Always has assignments I want.

    292. I feel that my recuriter hs been completely accessible to me and has come through in a timely manner in every situation. Completely satisfied with my company!

    293. This is my first assignment, Talemed has been very helpful getting me started on my new career of travel nursing.

    294. Submitted without permission, will not reimburse PALS as promised, does not reimburse nsg license as promised.
      Condescending and less than truthful recruiters.
      Did not take housing or health insurance. Unable to enroll in retirement until 1 yr emloyment.

    295. Very good agency! I have had nothing but good experiences with them. The recruiters are friendly and diligent about getting you into an assignment quickly.

    296. I had a great time working with TaleMed. If I had a question they answered it an went even further to make sure I understood my contract. The QA department spelled everything out that I needed it was a very easy process coming from a company that I was not happy with.

    297. I was having a difficult time with 2 back to back assignments. Being a traveler for only 6 months at that time, I was talking with other travelers about the benefits that their recruiters had offered them. I contacted my recruiter about sign-on bonuses, completion bonuses, airfare, ext…her response was, “Well, you must ask for them”. I felt lil I was fed to the wolves.

    298. Talemed has been fantastic from start to finish of my first contract with them. I would highly recommend them.

    299. I recently went on an assignment to California (my first! ) and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! I have the best recruiter out there, Steve Williams, he is very personable and dedicated to helping his nurses get what they want out of an assignment! I had the time of my life because of him and talemed! thanks Steve!

    300. I also took my first travel assignment in Eagle Butte, SD and stayed in a motel room for 2 weeks, until a new friend took me in. I am 6 weeks into my 3 month stay and I have yet to hear a word from my recruiter. Although I am not currently having any issues, I expected to hear frmo her every once and a while. We also have yet to discuss anything related to my next assignment. Unfortunate for them I have already booked my next assignment with Cross Country.

    301. I have taken my first travel assignment with Talemed, and was sent to Eagle Butte, SD (the middle of no where). This is understandable since it is my first assignment, however, I was placed in a MOTEL ROOM. This is exactly what you would think. I live in one room with a bathroom. Kitchen not included.

    302. TaleMed was great they answered every question I asked in a truthful tone.

      Just remember to ask questions no question is a stupid question, if their recutier does not the the answer when you ask it they will find out for you.

    303. Of all the choices in companies you have TALEMED is the best choice. I will work for them again. Honest and friendly.

    304. I have worked for three other companies and by far this is the best one. You notice the difference when you speak to the recruiters. You have the personal number and the treat you with respect. Housing and Insurance is outstanding

    305. If individualizing a contract, you have to make sure that every detail is thought of and in the contract, If not they will not honor it. They do not have enough contracts for Housing so are not very knowledgeable about rentals and furniture. Not enough contracts in enough areas and not very agressive in finding you what YOU want, pressure to fulfill their wishes. Take advantage of new travelers.
