TotalMed is a company that is in it for the long haul. We are with you from the beginning of your traveling journey to the end. TotalMed was founded in 2006. We are a JCAHO certified company who works with over 1,500 hospitals nationwide. We recently acquired Valley Healthcare and are in the process of merging and sharing all of our knowledge and contacts with each other. Totalmed offers day 1 insurance, travel reimbursements, paid onboarding and medical screenings, as well as top notch customer service. Several of our recruiters have been recognized for going above and beyond in various platforms as well. We strive to find you the best positions, encompassing everything you want. Our bread and butter clients are in the Midwest (WI,MN,IL,etc) but we can get you anywhere you are looking to go. We have several account managers that are client and territory focused so they are able to develop personal and long lasting relationships with our clients. Which in turn, helps us send you to fabulous locations!
Our company provides housing as an option as well as the stipend to meet your needs- whatever they are. Not only do we place Traveling RNs, we also place Allied Health/Techs, Per Diem, and Perm/Direct Hire. Most recently, we were awarded ‘Best of Staffing Talent Satisfaction’ by Inavero which we are very proud of. This is the third year in a row that we have been honored to be in the top! Additionally, for the past 10 years we have been on Highway Hypodermics in the top 25 companies to work with!
As part of our core values, integrity and FUN are things that are very important to us. Our recruiters go through a vigorous training that includes tax home, per diem education, pay packages, insurance, and general travel nursing tips. We have recently partnered with Moxie Mentoring to set our recruiters up for success even more so! TotalMed routinely attends the Travel Nurse Conference in Las Vegas, NV where we get to meet and dine our fabulous caregivers. Not only may we meet you in Vegas, we are constantly hosting ‘meet and greet’ events around the country. Last year we were in Napa and Valdosta, this year we are slated for more CA trips and even Dallas, TX! We want our travelers to get to meet their recruiters and see who is on the other end of the phone. It helps build trust and is just an unforgettable time! At TotalMed, we want you to feel taken care of, in every way! Let us have the chance to show you why TotalMed goes above and beyond and why we are a leader in the Travel Nursing industry!
I’ve been in the travel nursing industry since I graduated college with a communication degree in 2014. I started fresh out of college in Austin, Texas. I loved being able to find an RN that I clicked with and be able to offer them a chance to see the country and make great money while doing it!
I soaked up as much information as I could get my hands on and attended all the events/trade shows I could!! It wasn’t until about a year in when I got my sea legs but since then it’s been a whirlwind of change and learning. Every day is different, each month is something new… travel nursing doesn’t slow down!
Which brings me to my second chapter in travel nursing! In October of 2017 I started working for a company who has come to be family, Totalmed. I was looking for a company that was always going to do the right thing when it came to our healthcare professionals. I wanted a firm answer on how we were going to protect our nurses and other healthcare workers when things looked grey. I have been working with Totalmed since 2017 and there isn’t a day that I question my decision about coming to the right company. The recruiters, account managers, compliance, payroll department, they all run on our core values! Integrity, Fun, Internal Drive, and Respect are what we run off of, and I’m proud to be a part of it!
In this job, sometimes we have ups and downs, just like a roller coaster. But what truly matters to me is that the people I work with are phenomenal. The nurses that I get to talk to daily, the stories that I get to hear, I wouldn’t change my profession for the world. Being able to get someone to their friends or family across the country, their new boyfriend, to be near their elderly parents…. It’s all part of the reason why this job gives me so much purpose. My favorite part of this job is the excitement when I place a first-time traveler in an assignment, or helping a nurse get to that really hard spot that no one has been able to place them. So many high moments in this job. A second favorite would have to be the relationships I’ve developed with my nurses. They know that we don’t work for each other, we are a team. We trust each other, and we operate with integrity and honestly. Being in this industry for nearly 6 years has taught me that things are always changing and it’s important to stay educated and to always be asking questions.

Dan is a Senior Travel Nurse Recruiter with TotalMed Staffing. In his time as a Recruiter, he has worked with two different companies where he has gained knowledge on how various companies can approach the travel experience. Dan’s style to recruiting is to treat every traveler he interacts with, as family/friends, advocating for them in every way that he can. He believes this comes from being as knowledgeable as possible about both business and traveler aspects of the industry. This provides a strong foundation in which both parties can be open and honest with one another. Finally, Dan takes great pride in working with travelers ranging at all levels of experience, but says there are few things that feel as good as being able to say, “CONGRATS on landing your first assignment!” to a new traveler.
