About Nomad

The first digital marketplace for healthcare staffing.

We built this company to connect nurses to rewarding opportunities and address the healthcare staffing shortage. Nomad eliminates the chaotic and inelegant healthcare staffing system of yesterday and replaces it with a simple, modern platform that just works.
