O.R. Nurses Nationwide, a Memphis healthcare staffing company, has launched Travel Nurses, Inc., a specialty division of the business specifically focused on serving traveling medical professionals.
Travel Nurses, Inc. allows licensed professionals to search for and select national work opportunities through the company's online portal. Interviews, screenings and trainings are also conducted online, giving professionals the flexibility to manage their schedule and job prerequisites from home.
A nurse-owned and operated company, O.R. Nurses Nationwide has been connecting nurses to limited contract work opportunities since 1988. The company was recently ranked the No. 1 travel nurse agency in the U.S. by Blue Pipes, a healthcare networking platform.
"We've been working with travel nurses for decades, but as the profession continued to grow in popularity, we saw a need for a staffing business designed specifically for these professionals and their unique needs," said Denise Burnett Stewart, founder of O.R. Nurses Nationwide.
Stewart, who served as a nurse in Vietnam, has lived in Memphis since 1982. She established the company with the late Carol Paterson, focusing on staffing operating rooms and surgical centers. In addition to its headquarters in the Memphis area, O.R. Nurses Nationwide has offices in Dallas and Houston. Each office is under the supervision of a nurse.
