How is Nomad different?
Nomad is different because we’re the first network to empower
nurses and medical employers to connect directly for travel
nursing jobs, instead of working through a third party recruiter.
Nurses benefit from having full transparency on all job details
upfront, and they can earn higher incomes from medical employers
that save money on recruiter fees. Plus Nomad is 100% online,
meaning that there’s no paperwork or phone calls.
Do I have to pay anything to use this service?
Nope. Nomad is completely free for all nurses.
