We’re perfectly honest about what isn’t perfect.

We’re perfectly honest about what isn’t perfect.

At Triage, we tell it like it is.

That’s how we ensure travelers get where they want to go. And facilities find the talent they need.

We are a fairly young company (we started in 2006). And we’re more than okay with that. Because it’s all well and good to learn from the past, but it’s disastrous to be stuck in it. And stuck in a one-size-fits-all, churn-and-burn mentality is not what Triage is about. Never has been. Never will be.

Instead, we prefer to be real. Real about expectations – both ours and yours. Real about how a decision you make today could affect your tomorrows. Real about how compensation actually works. Real about how great – or grating – your next supervisor may be.

Being real allows everyone at Triage to be ready. Ready to serve you with real honesty. So if that gig near the ocean is really no day at the beach, or that third shift comes with a second-class rate, we tell you. So you can be ready, too.

  • We serve six major divisions of acute care – nursing, lab, radiology, rehab therapy, cardiopulmonary and long-term care
  • One point of contact for both travelers and facilities (per division)
  • In-house compliance and accounting specialists
  • On-staff clinical liaisons
  • Mentoring program that is run and managed by actual clinicians – yeah, you read that right
  • And more (because of course there’s more)

Are we the biggest? No. Are we the best? That’s rather subjective, but we’re trying to be. Will we work like hell to get you as close to your idea of heaven as possible? Yes. Yes, we will.

We make sure finding work doesn’t feel like a
second job.

At Triage, we do our best (which is pretty darn good) at helping you do what you do best while enjoying the people, places, experiences – and paycheck – you’re looking for.

13-week Gigs
Most placements run for 13 weeks. That means they’re temporary. Which is kind of why you’re into being a traveler, right?

Good news, you get actual money in exchange for your services – and you get paid weekly (woo-hoo!). But how that amount gets divvied up and dished out can be altered to best fit your lifestyle.

You Work for Triage
Technically, you’re working for us even though you’re working at a facility. This makes things a lot easier for you when it comes to accounting and taxes.

We can be as hands-on or hands-off as you like. So if you prefer we find a place, sign the lease and pay the rent, no problem. If you prefer taking your housing allowance and making your own arrangements, go nuts. And, of course, we can help with anything in between.

Yes, one of the benefits of being a Triage traveler/employee is that you get actual benefits. Health, dental, vision, 401(k), vacation, and even continuing education and certification reimbursement.

The Big Six
We provide placements in six of the major acute staffing areas: nursing, radiology, lab, rehab services, cardiopulmonary and long-term care. Not everyone does, which is kind of weird. But hey, go us.
