The impact that a good recruiter can have on your career as a travel nurse is very real and finding one that you can trust to stand up for you and get the job done is not something you should take lightly. A good recruiter with a good caring travel nursing company behind them should be someone that is not only professional, but someone you can trust and someone you should be able to have a relationship with.
