NursesPro Revolutionizes the Travel Nurse Industry

NursesPro Revolutionizes the Travel Nurse Industry

Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 28, 2006

NursesPro has launched 2 revolutionary programs for Travel Nurses which aim to correct what they see as ‘an unfair industry practice,’ whereby nurses are paid only 50% of the amount for which their agency contracts them out. According to industry figures, the average contract bill rate is between $ 60- $ 80/hour to the Healthcare Delivery Organization, depending on the region of the country. This translates to an average pay for the nurse professional of only $ 26/hr, according to national statistics.

Ram Rodriguez, Career Manager with NursesPro said, “When we talked to our nurses, we found out that one of their biggest gripes was that they felt ripped off by agencies taking half of the money they had earned. So we offer our nurses 2 programs, which can result in 30-40% more money for them. With our 80/20 program, we pay our nurses 80% of the contract bill rate for assignments which we find for them. In our 90/10 program, we pay our nurses 90% of the contract bill rate, if our nurse is able to find his/her own assignments.”

Needless to say, NursesPro is finding a lot of interest in its programs – in the first month since the programs were launched the company received over 100 requests for information from nurses from all over the country.

Kashif Aftab, President with NursePro said, “We are thoroughly excited at being able to finally offer something back to our nurses, who work so hard at one of the most demanding and essential jobs in the world.”
