I am a 20 year ICU RN. I have traveled extensively with several companies over the years as well as been a staff RN. Advantage RN is truly the worst company I have ever dealt with. The only one getting any "Advantage" is THEM!! It sure is NOT the RN!! My miserable story with them began as I was driving to one assignment which I had accepted from them, from Idaho to Texas...over half way there, got a call that assignment had been canceled due to the fact I had asked for a certain three days off during the contract (which I had discussed this request with recruiter, even told her it was not a big deal if they said no and maybe even that I should just work it out with them on the schedule instead but she had advised me this would be no problem, to go ahead and ask for the three days off!) NOW, supposedly, they canceled my contract because I FAILED to ask for the days off BEFORE signing the contract, and had requested them AFTER the contract was signed?! What a load of crap! So much for the recruiters advise! Thank God I had family in Texas, because I was almost there when they canceled my assignment enroute! I begged them NOT to, saying I didn't have to have the days off. NO good! They still canceled. And all this crappy company did was say.."OH well".
Now, after that, like an idiot, I hung on, and because I wouldn't take an assignment just anywhere, they got irritated, demanding that I just TAKE ANY assignment ANYwhere to just "take a job". And they were bad mouthing me on top of that to other recruiters, I found out later. So, I finally stopped dealing with them and in the meantime, did a successful assignment with another company. THEN, THEY CALLED ME BACK...said they had a great opportunity for me in Nashville, TN. So, again, like an idiot, went ahead again with them...had the interview, accepted the assignment, and because I did not turn my paperwork in as FAST as they wanted, they CANCELED THIS CONTRACT also!! I had a week and a half to get everything in to them and because I needed to wait til the weekend to get the papers in as I was out of town, they called me up middle of week and said..canceling contract because I failed to turn in documents "FAST ENOUGH"!!! I have this to say about this RIDICULOUS company...If you value your sanity...AVOID THIS COMPANY. They are NOT on the side of the RN...they will leave you in the lurch and just tell you "OH WELL". I have nothing good to say here. As I stated, 20 year nurse, worked for several good travel companies and I'm telling you, THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM!! I'll be watching for this joke of a travel company to GO OUT OF BUSINESS! It shouldn't take too long based on my own experiences with them. Sign their contract at your own risk!
ARN is the best! No question.
My Recruiter is Justin Hess, very strong work ethic! Love him!
I have been travel nursing for 10 years, the last 8yrs has been with ARN and Justin.
No worries when traveling with ARN
My recruiter Nicole is the best! She is always there for me, super fast to get back to me and will literally do anything she can to help me! The pay is decent as well. The only gripes I really have are that it seemed they have a lot of third-party contracts so it was more difficult than normal to get an assignment. Also, their documents analyst is very passive aggressive and not the easiest person to deal with. Otherwise I found them to be very honest, upfront, and prompt with every interaction I've had with them. Also, they never ever messed up on my paycheck and my recruiter made sure that we got all bonuses coming to us.
worst experience EVER!! was hired in small,rural hospital--was called off of work every other week with no options of getting the "promised" 36 hours a week--"you will never be called off"---not true. when i asked recruiter what to do and how to pay my bills, i was recommended to get an additional job
do not like being told incorrect info on an assignment
I found myself unemployed after 10years in the same facility. Did not know what to do! So I talked with several travel nursing companies: Went with another company (that was a really bad mistake). Advantagern was the other service I was talking to; I have the most awesome, caring, recruiter they have Roshanna Adams has been able to restore my confidence, and match me with a great Facility. I know everyone at Advantagern care about their clients. They Make me feel like family. I hope everyone that is a client , can get a recruiter as great as mine. Roshanna Adams knows her stuff and takes the extra time to know her nurses. I thank God for steering me her way.
This company not once but twice got me an assignment I went through hell getting their compliance prerequisites done. And then at the very last mom in the hospital had canceled my contract. The company states it was because of my suspension of a Virginia license. But in the 14 years of being a traveling nurse this is never happened to me before. Only with advantage RN have my contracts been canceled before I even started. This happened on my first two and only assignment.so I had to buy strongly before signing with this company. Because they do leave you high and dry.
I've been with advantage rn as a traveler for 4 years, and I'm still really happy with them! Donna has been my recruiter from the beginning and she's looked out for me and gotten me just about everywhere I've wanted to go! (And some I loved that I didn't know I wanted to try!) They listen to feedback on hospitals from the nurses who've worked there. Payroll department is quick to let you know if there's a timesheet problem and the pays always been accurate and on time. Benefits are decent, and that department is so helpful, like when it comes to emailing you the insurance card that you know is packed somewhere but can't think where and searching all your stuff when sick is not what you want to do... they've got you covered. They're a great company to work for if you're a nurse who wants to travel for a chance to see the country, make good money,but want to feel like you're not totally on your own out there. Its not the company to go with if you just want all the highest pay and plan to pit companies against each other for biggest payout, fair warning they aren't big enough for that, but you'll get the best pay they can, and it'll be more than a lot of other travelers you'll meet at the same place. Hope this helps.
Great experience. I have the best recruiter in the business
They got me the information I needed about travel nursing and sound like they really know their stuff. I look forward to them handling my travel assignments!
Great Company! Always Professional.
They are very helpful, nice & efficient
They've had great explanations to my questions and what I need to get done.
My recruiter is very personable, She is always cheerful and ready to assist with any need. She really takes into consideration one's wishes and desires when obtaining a contract location. She never tries to force an assignment on the contractor. I feel I could call her at anytime and she would try her best to help. She was a perfect fit for me.
Advantage RN has done a great job overall with understanding, listening and considering what I want in a travel nursing job.
So far advantage rn had been honest, positive, helpful, and willing help me get back into travel nursing again.
Very bad company, its in the Better Business Bureau they will leave you stranded on assignment just the way they did me.
Horrible company ripped me off on every check and did not pay my overtime. Many concealed disguised errors on the checks, no returned calls,
angry rude people with a tight budget that have
ripped off many nurses. They never paid me what they owed me. Nurses are talking about them and it is all negative. Rating zero
They've done an awesome job listening to all my needs. They've facilitated a wonderful work environment no matter how difficult of an assignment
Advantage RN worked to find an assignment for me. I definitely did not want to go anywhere hot,and prefer smaller towns. I do Home Health and the demand is not as great as other specialties. They presented all the opportunities and if I wasn't thrilled about any of them, they said "don't worry, we'll find something." They've been friendly, fun and light hearted, never pushy, trying to talk me into job I really didn't want. They check in weekly and respond immediately if I have a need. I've been traveleing for 21/2 years with several agencies. As long as my recruiter stays with Advantage RN, I will stay.
Love this company and love my recruiter
I am new to travel nursing, but my recruiter from advantage rn is ALWAYS available per phone or email. Of all the agencies I have contacted, she has been the best.
Advantage RN has given me a very nice and special welcome. I am looking forward to my new assignment with them.
They worked so hard to get me in a hospital close to home and took all of my needs into consideration when searching for positions for me.
They were extremely friendly, and informative. They were genuine and calmed "my nerves" a bit.
My recruiter responds quickly to any problems I have. She listens to me and understands my situation. She tells me the TRUTH about every little detail. I had a recruiter from my old company who lied to me and would not return my calls. My recruiter here is the greatest!!!!!
I've been traveling with Advantage RN for almost 2 years now! I'm so happy with the company and with my recruiter! They have had me set up on assignments in physically awesome locations and I'm currently working at a US News and World Reports ranked hospital! I can't say enough about this company!
I’ve been a traveling nurse for many years and have been with Advantage RN for the past four. Last year my wife started traveling with me. On a whim, we bought an RV. Now we are truly Traveling Nurses! Over the past year we’ve worked throughout the Southwest and now we are in California. We winter in Monterey – life’s tough! So the next time you pass one of those “big rigs” on the road, give a wave. It might be us!
Fast forward to late 2013 and I’m still on the road. Unfortunately, I am spending the winter in Santa Barbara this year! Someone has to do it. My recruiter is great and if it wasn’t for her I might be forced to retire and bake cookies!!
Horrible company to work for I had been an experienced travler right off the bat they lied to me about my housing first they gave me my rate of pay and housing was included then they deducted 8$ an hour for housing had I not signed the contract would have told them where to stick it. Got meets above ecp on hospital review and renewed well since census was low and regular staff was getting layed off I was the traveler to be thrown under the bus they gave me 1 day to get out of the apt I was in refused to fly me back and even kept my last week of salary for 48 hrs. I was in tears on the phone with my husband until our lawyer called them and they flew me back and took it out of the last check but also kept the rest. Couldnt pay me a million dollars to work for these shady, horrible to their nurses agency if you want to call them a agency.
Communication is excellent as is the pay. I’ve already recommended a few people to Advantage RN
I love Advantage RN and my recruiter , my Housing coordinator, and my QA Coordinator…I don’t know what I would do without these three ladies. They are terrific. They are always there for me and if I have a problem I can always pick up the phone and discuss it with any of them. I have traveled with them for three years and can’t imagine working for any other company
