Happy RN

I was referred to Aureus by a previous assistant director at a hospital we both use to work for. She spoke highly of them.
I am entering my third contract and so far no issues. My Michigan recruiter, Nick is amazing. Have had a great experience with the Florida team, Emily has amazing. Talked to recruiters from South Carolina, Texas, and Arizona when I was trying to decide where to go for the winter and my choices were amazing, from management to clinical care at Mayo, to staff nurse. Impressed thus far! I would definitely recommend!
I set-up my own housing so I can not speak on that. So far no issues.

I sadly can’t recommend this company based on my experience. If it changes I will update.

RUN from this company. It is a self-serving, self aggr and izing company which only operates to augment the performance of their own company. They have a scripted response to everything one asks, they do NOT consummate their promises and they leave tyou with very many of your own expenses. I have been screwed over by them twice now; fool me once shame on you;fool me twice shame on me!Their converstaions with you are suggestive of a conspicuous performance and they WILL NEVER BE YOUR ADVOCATE. They can't because they have to make the "company" look skilled and polished. If any of them have a college education, I would be surprised. They are like the Sirens in Greek mythology. Remember, "The siren sings so sweetly that she lulls the mariners to sleep; then she climbs upon the ships and kills the sleeping mariners." They will lure you in with their enchanting script and then you're hooked.
Like I said "RUN"!
Oh and BTW and just FYI, they RECORD all of your phone calls and conversations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by CNA Nightmare on Aureus Medical

So this is my first assignment ever and what a mistake. My recruiter is awesome, it's the account manager Penny who does nothing but lie. If you don't answer your phone, she sends a text then an email. My assignment was horrible. I was told Id be in a hospital but I'm in nursing home. I can't put my hours in the website so have to email them to her. She won't rwply to emails but Penny expects you to be her begging call. I've only been here a week and will not finish my contract!!

by veronica on Aureus Medical

My first assessment has been great, my recruiter make sure I am ok and check in regularly. Thanks not bad for the first time traveler nurse assignment.

by Donna on Aureus Medical

This Was my first travel assignment with this company, and I'm going to have to say , I am not impressed and would not recommend them to anybody, I feel it they immediately ab and oned me in a situation NE where it was a personality issue with the nurse , and My Contract was canceled by a lie with my Orientee, and Aureus did not immediately back me up, don't recommend them to anyone !!

Speech Pathologist

I've had three assignments with them and have never had a problem. I've even worked with different recruiters. I'm shocked by the really negative reviews. I had one housing issue, and they fixed it promptly. Any pay errors were fixed quickly. I'd highly recommend them.

No complaints yet

I had decided to go with Aureus before reading these reviews... so now I am a little worried. However my recruiter, Veronica, is THE BEST. She is in constant contact with me, emails me on the weekends. Has been very upfront about pay, costs, etc. I went to reviews written about 2 years ago, and maybe things have changed. My recruiter does not change based on the location. They do have "managers" that you talk to to explain a job in a certain area, but after that my recruiter h and les all the day-to-day stuff! I have no complaints. Hopefully my experience goes like the other 5-stars here and not like the 1s 🙁

Traveling SLP

I am a traveling Speech therapist in the southeast region. I have to say I'm shocked by any negative review. My Aureus case managers have been diligent, supportive, pleasant. I love my placement and always feel I can turn to the company if I have any issues. Give them a try!

by Lauren on Aureus Medical

Every pay check had something missing I would have to pay very close attention to my hours and pay because they will cut corners where they can.

by Stewart Hood on Aureus Medical
always great!

I have worked for several travel companies over the years and most recently with Aureus. I never had any issues with them. My recruiter was great and everyone was always very friendly. Nothing negative to say about Aureus.

by Jason on Aureus Medical
Almost signed up, thankful I didn't

I had my resume up for another career when I was contacted by a recruiter from Aureus. I decided I might try one more travel assignment. The first recruiter was really helpful. Then I was contacted by a woman named Tara. She tried to pressure me into hours I didn't want. I detected a bit of an attitude from this woman which started putting me off. Later I interviewed with a hospital that I decided not to go with and "Tara" got pretty rude on the phone asking me what the problem was and how I shouldn't interview if I don't want to take it. So I looked this company up online and started reading all the negative reviews. Glad I listened to my gut on this company. Thanks, Tara, I've been around long enough to detect pushy used car salesmen and bully tactics don't work on me.

by Chuck on Aureus Medical
Do not care for the Traveler

Once you accept an assignment; they will hang you out to dry. Their concern will always be for the "Client" and will always side on their behalf. Expect unprofessionalism. Degradation and disrespect. Other positive reviews may be propag and a on behalf of the company. Imaging professionals beware.

by Loraine Weers on Aureus Medical
stable, low pressure company

I have been traveling with them for the last 4-5 years and always find them very helpful, communicative, honest and responsive. what we do is stressful and hard. It is a convoluted living that we choose to participate in. I have made a decent wage and any discrepancies that arise are resolved by their attention and willingness to look at the situation honestly. Several times they have had my back when unexpected situations arise and help me navigate to the best possible outcome. They always respond to my phone calls, e-mails or texts. Just when I feel the situation is hopeless, they come through. Really love them

by Pius on Aureus Medical

I have completed 3 contracts with this company and I have nothing to say except how stress-free my contracts with them have been. My expectations were realistic from the beginning, my account manager/s have far exceeded them. I am about to re-sign for a 4th contract and have turned down better financial offers in favor of a stress-free contract.

Do it yourself

Aureus has some really great people working for them. But those great people sit behind a desk and make money off of us. We work hard and we are the ones who are making the sacrifice. Everything we ask for should at least be considered and NEVER flat out refused. Every company you staff with or work for has guidelines in every area that help with per-diem stats. The government sets daily perdiem amounts of housing and meal limits based off the are you are in. The hospitals and states already comply and expect this much. Skimming off tax free perdiems is like robbing not just the worker but the government as well. You can do all this stuff yourself. It is not that complicated and I have began steps to break this maddening cycle. If you think your not being robbed, look up your perdiems yourself at: Compare what you are actually getting to what is suppose to be. Because somebody is getting it! They will tell you they do not comply with GSA. But that is untrue. It is government regulated and they have to comply with this. How they get away with only paying me 1/2 of what I am suppose to get, is what I plan on finding out and avoiding in the future. Pimp yourself out people. You'll make better money and its really not that difficult.

Great company to work for

Have been been traveling for 16 years.
Have at times worked for four other agencies, not because I was unhappy
but because of job availability.
Surprised at negative reviews.
Aureus is by far the best.

by Michelle on Aureus Medical

Have been working with them almost a year, several assignments. Never had a problem, very attentive, great pay.

by Gypsy on Aureus Medical
Aureus medical allied health

Everyone experience will be different. I will say Aureus have the potential to be a good company to work for but in my opinion they need a better system. I have had an okay experience with them. I don't want to blame the account managers or in essence say they are at fault for everything that has been going wrong but they are the only person I've had contact with so it just happened they get the blames. All the facilities I've work with has been awesome the people were nice and always willing to help. My biggest problem with Aureus is that they could not get my check correct, it was always something and I will have to wait days and sometime week before it is fixed. And when it's time for them to get you housing it takes forever and the hotels they put you in while waiting are not always in good condition. They have a tendencies to agree to a lot and don't deliver.

I don't normally take time to do review, but I thought someone need to know what they are getting themselves into, because I did read the others reviews before starting with them but chose to ignored them and now I learned my lesson. Do your research.

by travel PT on Aureus Medical

I took a job with them because I became desperate after being told that there was nothing available for new graduates and they were the most persistent for the job. The pay was not good, times that I could contact my recruiter was only during work hours which did not work out and I was placed in the most dangerous area of the town to live. Would absolutely not recommend to work for them.

by Jean on Aureus Medical
Not recommended

I went with this company because they were the first to respond to me and were persistent.
I ended up in a horrible housing situation with them.
I came out of my assignment more in debt because of the poor pay.
When a family situation required me to return home I was threatened by the company.
I underst and the need to follow through with a contract but family comes first.

by LPN on Aureus Medical
Should have LISTENED!!

After reading all the bad reviews, I still chose to go with Aureus, bad mistake and lesson learned. Maybe they do have a few good recruiters but the ones I had were only concerned with themselves and definitely were not a nurse advocate and as most reviews say they use you to better their pockets and could careless about the nurses. As long as you are doing what your recruiter wants and you don't complain about the assignment or facility then of course you will not have a problem with them but if you are vocal and st and behind your true nursing career and want to be the best nurse that you are then you better be prepared to be BULLIED by this company. That's right....THEY ARE BULLY RECRUITERS and prey on new nurses, unfortunately I was not the new nurse, I have 10+ years experience although my first travel assignment so therefore I was a BULLY target! But everyone must explore and find the right team for you..I have found better and there are still so many better companies out there. These people will Steal, Cheat and Lie to you...if it hasn't happened I promise you it will!! First and Worst company but thanks for the lesson learned and now I can move forward being the best nurse that I am!!


This is a horrible company, and they should be investigated. They are not on the up and up, and bank money they keep from you. Stay away! Choose a better company with better ratings!!! They made my life a living hell for 6 months, and threatened to sue me because I wanted to use a new company for my extension at a hospital. They use many scare tactics and do NOT CARE ABOUT YOU AT ALL. You are a dollar sign to them, a number. their ratings online are below 60%, and other top companies are 90-100%. CHOOSE A DIFFERENT COMPANY, THEY ARE HORRIBLE!

This company takes too much of your hard earned money from you and they don't care about you at all your a number not a person. The staff at Aureus only care about their own business interest which is how much money they can make off you from your contract with the hospital. They do not provide decent housing or a realistic stipend reimbursement for cost of area if you choose not to go with their housing. Don't choose this company to travel with, you will regret it.

by Lola on Aureus Medical
I would recommend Aureus to anyone

Okay first of all am so passed about all this negative reviews because none of them is true I love this company so much am sacred to switch to another one my recruiter Kim is a caring person to me she always call to check on me and if I have any questions she always replied me back with a call or email. She does everything to get me a job when my contract is almost over so I won't be without one. And they put my family and I in a wonderful nice home to show how much they care they remember my birthday I got a birthday card and a gift card so please tell me if any other company can beat that. Aureus really do care for their employees. Don't let nobody stops you from your blessing with all this negative comments.

by experienced RN on Aureus Medical

They don't care how far you travel,if you have money once you arrive,& will constantly call,text & email while you are taking care of patients!They can't be trusted.They are pond scum.

by no stipend/unpaid/no reimbursement on Aureus Medical
Unethical, immoral,sneaky,lying,deceiving

This company should be taken down just for representing the medical world.They are the most despicable humans alive.They will lie,cheat,sneak & most importantly,disrupt the nursing work that you were hired to do!! Do not trust any company that puts patients in danger!! I also believe they are prejudice against women!! Read the reviews,most men seem happy.Hmmmmm....

by Ken on Aureus Medical
Don't believe the bad reviews

This is my first assignment with Aureus and I couldn't be happier. They reimburse the total amount for licensing and certifications. I have worked with 3 other agencies and have other been reimbursed up to a certain amount. I have also been quite satisfied with the stipends I receive, which have more than adequately paid my housing and meals. As far as the hourly rate, I find it comparable to the other companies, when you determine the hourly rate including your stipends. I would strongly recommend Aureus and intend on continuing my travel nursing career with them.

by Steve on Aureus Medical
Don't travel with them

This company is the absolute worst to travel with. You'd be better of walking down a dark, scary alley in the ghetto late at night, cause at least that mugging or worse would only take a few minutes instead of 13 weeks. They will take everything from you they can and it isn't worth it to travel with them. I'm getting ready to file a complaint with the Department of Labor for all their required (yet uncompensated) stuff before you even start a contract.
