In anÂ intriuging way to address the nursing shortageÂ a new site calledÂ NurseAuction.com has launched. It is an interesting concept where theÂ site, which isÂ free, allows nurses to bid on shifts and shift ownersÂ to bid on nurses in a “stock exchange” like market. I commented on this on a post at PixelRN.comif you want to read it, but basically I think commoditizes the nurse and takes awayÂ the personal touch and back up that a Recruiter can provide you when are on assignment at a strange place. I know this entire industry is based on supply and demand but in the end to me it comes down to people and relationships and this seems to be taking that aspect away.

My name is Jeff Long. I’m the Marketing Manager at Medical Solutions, one of the leading travel nursing companies
. I have never been a nurse and am not a recruiter. I have worked at Medical Solutions for four years and think it is a great company that has a lot to offer nurses and allied health professionals interested in a travel career. I do post just a small sampling of travel nursing jobs
from Medical Solutions, but mostly I write about travel nursing
. On this site you will not be recruited on this blog (unless you specifically inquire about traveling with Medical Solutions then I will forward your info to a Recruiter). I understand that you are reading and/or commenting on this blog purely for informational purposes and I want you to enjoy that experience My job is to help you meet your career goals by sharing information, advice and the benefits of travel nursing with you.
