Typically, travel nursing assignments require a commitment of 13 weeks or more. Most nurse temporary staffing agencies are not equipped to handle shorter placements or placements that require a rapid response to an urgent and crucial need for patient care. Fastaff pioneered the concept of Rapid Response® travel nurse staffing to the healthcare industry in 1989. Since then, we’ve been providing travel nurses to hundreds of hospitals, sometimes on very short notice, for placements that may last as little as four weeks or as long as a year or more. This means more jobs and options for our nurses, and superior service for the varied needs of our hospital clients.
