  • Great company. Love my recruiter 07/19/2017
  • Reimbursement money does not full cover required certs. Housing being left up to RN is difficult. 06/29/2017
  • I don't like to wait till the last minute for things and I found out about 3 days before assignment that I needed an additional TB test, and it was not flu season and I was required to get a flu shot and I was not reimbursed for these items, and then my start date was pushed. 06/20/2017

  • I highly recommend TaleMed. I am preparing to take an assignment with them after travelling with others previously. My recruiter, Ryan M, is awesome. He has worked tirelessly to find me an assignment that works for me. Even while I was on assignment with another agency, he called to check in on me and see how things were going. They have been great. I am looking forward to travelling and working with them. They are very concerned and caring when it comes to taking care of their nurses. 06/14/2017
  • Great company! 06/14/2017
  • I love my recruiter, Jeremy Anderson. He always places me exactly where I want to go and meets all my needs. He really makes an effort to get to know me and makes me feel like he's working hard for me. 06/13/2017
  • Has been very understanding and offers good sound advise. I would recommend other nurses who want someone on there side to pick the one that works with me. He is the BEST. 06/12/2017
  • I'm on my first assignment and have extended for another. So far my recruiter has been very personable and helpful, calling just to check in. Paychecks have been on time and everything has been smooth. I am very happy so far. 05/24/2017
  • TaleMed is the first travel nursing company I have worked for. They have been amazing so far. My recruiter Noah is the sole reason I chose TaleMed. He is honest and he treats me like a person instead of a client. I would gladly recommend others to use TaleMed. 04/24/2017
  • Talemed has made my first experience with travel nursing exceptional! I would recommend to all nurses to work for them! Everyone goes above and beyond to be helpful! Can't say enough good things about them!A 04/20/2017
  • Amazing! Super supportive, quick for response, and quick to solve any problems!! 04/20/2017
  • My recruiter was subpar housing manager was subpar credentialar subpar everything about this agency was subpar. They tell you about bonuses if you extend and then the recruiter says something entirely different when you do extend. Housing manager did a horrible job to include not getting back with the landlord when she wanted to extend the stay. Then he says nothing to you about it until you accidentally stumble upon it then you find out and then instead of owning responsibility he makes up a story to cover himself should I go on. No please never ever sign with this company. The credentialer when asked why this or that is needed she says because the hospital said so. You have to get answers from other places. Everything is always a out and out total lie about this place. 04/20/2017
  • Talemed has been a pleasure to work with. 04/17/2017
  • love working with talemed, super friendly and professional. 04/17/2017
  • Great Company!!! Noah worked extremely hard and got me a great contract!!! 04/16/2017
  • Fantastic agency, only thing to change would be if I could get reimbursed for labwork etc right away instead of having to wait till after the contract. 04/16/2017
  • Starting as a new travel RN, TaleMed, especially my recruiter, has been absolutely amazing in regards to helping me every step of the way navigate this confusing career change. They are always available in a reasonable amount of time if I have an issue and are always on top of helping me find new, appropriate, assignments that help me reach my goals and they help me keep on track of other important paperwork such as keeping my licenses up to date/ in compliance. My recruiter is invested in how I'm doing and checking up on me at least once a week which is nice because it me feel supported as opposed to simply a means to paycheck. 04/16/2017
  • The website needs a little more information as far as where the jobs are, shifts, wage etc. 04/16/2017
  • I can not put into words how much I love my recruiter!!! He has made my transition to Travel Nursing a great experience and goes above and beyond to be supportive, helpful and available. Highly recommend!! 04/13/2017
  • this is my first assignment as a traveller and it overall has been a positive experience. I feel a tad naive and am learning to negotiate and understand how things work. Talemed and my recruiter have been very supportive. I do feel like I have to be assertive and ask for what I feel need in terms of $ and benefits and not just settle for what they offer. Talking with other travelers has been very helpful. I think all companies work this way.. 04/13/2017
  • Talemed has been great for me as I start my career as a travel nurse. My recruiter, Kyle, has been really nice and patient with me. 04/13/2017
  • I recommend Talemed to all of my nurse-friends and other nurses in the field. They are professional, reliable, and always helpful. Travis is my recruiter and he always goes above and beyond to make sure all is perfect for the assignment. I could not be more happy with my decision to be a travel nurse for this company. 04/13/2017
  • Kristen Bowles at TaleMed is a truly amazing recruiter, she always has my back and I would never work with another recruiter! Keep up the Great work TaleMed 04/13/2017

  • I really enjoy working with my recruiter Kyle, he's awesome at assisting with finding assignments for me and making sure my pay rate is fair! 04/12/2017
  • If a problem every arose at an assignment, I would call my recruiter and he would handle everything. My recruiter contacts me after my first to see how I'm doing. I feel like part of a family and not a cash cow. I absolutely love Talemed! I've tried other agencies and just felt that they didn't care what I wanted; they just wanted to make money off of me. 04/12/2017

  • I love Talemed I've been with them for over two years because I don't trust anyone else. My recruiter Jeremy Anderson has been excellent and gotten me assignments exactly where I want to be and for great rates. He's honest, he always calls before following up with emails, and I can tell her really cares about his job. I highly recommend Talemed 04/12/2017
  • This agency knows who you are when you call! Your not a number to them, you are a person! 04/12/2017
  • My first assignment was ok. When I accepted the second one I was running into all kinds of roadblocks personally. My car was hit and delay time to getting it back was extended past my contract, ,1200 miles from home. My daughter diagnosed with cancer, deaths in the family. I was trying to cope with this and fulfill the competencies for the next assignment and was threatened with 'fees' if I didn't do everything they wanted . I didn't even have a way home. I don't like being threatened. 03/09/2017
  • Talamed has been very friendly, accommodating, and supportive during my first travel assignment! I will definitely continue to use them. 02/23/2017
  • I was extremely nervous about starting to do travel nursing. It was very overwhelming to even choose an agency, not to mention all of the details that go with traveling itself. However my recruiter, Kyle has made things very easy and stress free. I am looking forward to starting my first assignment. 02/12/2017
  • So helpful. Nice and quick to follow up. 02/11/2017
  • N/A 02/10/2017

  • My recruiter Noah always returns my phone calls and answers questions in a timely manner. I feel very comfortable to ask him any questions I have. Steve has also been very good to answer my questions in a timely fashion. I will be telling all my coworkers about the great experience I've had working with TALMED! 01/17/2017
  • The company is very kind and accommodating. The 401K does not start until one year with the company. The prices are competitive to an extent, but less than quite a few other places. My recruiter is so kind and helpful though. I would definitely recommend them. 01/17/2017
  • My recruiter checks in at least once a week, and is always available if I need something. He is quick to respond to any concerns, and has always worked hard to get me the contracts I want. 01/17/2017
  • My recruiter, Noah, was very friendly and helpful; especially when my first assignment had some bumps in the road. He is always available when I had questions or just needed to vent. Would 100% recommend this company and recruiter. 01/17/2017
  • This is my first assignment with them and they have been prompt in answering my questions. 01/17/2017
  • Great start as my first travel company! 01/16/2017
  • I really like my recruiter but the benefits package seems awful and they don't seem to have as many assignments available as some of the larger companies. I really wish they had more online availability. 01/15/2017
  • Really liked my recruiter. He was very personable and accessible. 01/15/2017
  • New with the company, love them so far. Left Valley Staffing to make the switch during my assignment, TaleMed make the switch seamless! Kyle McCray is an awesome recruiter. 01/14/2017
  • My recruiter Kristen has been absolutely fantastic! She is easy to get a hold of, follows through with what she says, advocates for me on my behalf and is so warm and friendly! She is a gem and I love working with her. Everyone else I've been in contact with at TaleMed are friendly, professional, and very prompt as well. Choose TaleMed! 01/13/2017
  • Seems like a great company to be apart of 01/13/2017
  • 01/12/2017
  • Kate from talemed was my first recruiter and she has been wonderful; I don't feel like I was taken advantage of and I feel like she was upfront and honest and patient with all of my stuff to get started. 01/12/2017
  • They are so nice and helpful! 01/12/2017
  • This is the company to work for. I highly recommend them to anyone 01/11/2017
  • TaleMed was my first choice for a travel company and I have to say I couldn't have chosen wiser. They're not only efficient but funny, kind and caring. I'm on my third assignment including 2 extensions and couldn't be happier. I tell them where I want to go and they not only find me a contract but always a great contract to boot. I'm Team TaleMed. 12/08/2016
  • Honest about hospital's work environment, my recruiter always honest about pay and honors his verbal agreements as well. I highly recommend this agency. 12/05/2016
  • Communication seems to be lost between the different departments. I felt badgered about credentialing. I think there is false advertisement on the website promising high pay but when I comes down to it, you only get what they put on the website after you get the housing allowance, if you choose it but you still have to use for housing so it shouldn't even be considered part of your income. I'm only going to continue traveling with them because I'm already set up and I don't want to go through the process again. I would not say I'm satisfied with the company. 11/29/2016
  • My recruiter DJ is awesome 11/28/2016
  • very happy and pleased with the Talemed company. 11/25/2016
  • Oh my they have been so kind!! 11/25/2016
  • Talemed actually treats you like a person and they want to make you happy. They truly want to stick up for their nurses and get them the assignment of their dreams. They are all very efficient, thorough, and friendly. Their pay is awesome, along with their benefits. I could not see myself with a different company. 11/24/2016
  • My recruiter Kyle, has helped my husband and I out so much with insight on first travel assignment 11/23/2016
  • Great company that works hard for you and with you. Kyle at Talemed, made the transition easy and was helpful every step of the way. 11/23/2016
  • Currently on my third contract with Talemed and have no plans to switch. My recruiter Allan is fantastic! The entire team at Talemed has been friendly, efficient, easy to get a hold of and have questions answered and make you feel like a valued nurse instead of just a name on the payroll. They also took a lot of time to help me and walk me through so many questions in preparation for my first travel assignment. Would definitely recommend this agency. 11/20/2016
  • Great agency, Alan is my recruiter and makes me feel like a person. They're invested in their travelers and make them feel important 11/19/2016
  • First timer, loved working with the staff!! 11/18/2016
  • So great to work with! 11/17/2016
  • I have never traveled with Talemed before, but, based on their service to me, I fully plan to work with them in the Spring, when I travel again in 2017. 11/10/2016
  • I was recommended to TaleMed by an experienced traveler. This is my 1st travel assignment and honestly, could not have had things go smoother! Not only is my recruiter supportive and accessible, but the whole team! 11/05/2016
  • Brad is amazing!!! I have worked with TaleMed for 3 assignments. He is always available and answers my questions. I would recommend TaleMed to everyone who is looking for a company that really appreciates you as a nurse! 11/02/2016
  • So far everything has been great with my first assignment with TaleMed. Hopefully it'll continue when it comes time for my next contract and they're able to place me where I want to go. 11/02/2016
  • Brad is a pompous frat boy. If you have an issue, his response is cocky and to snicker. I don't find him professional at all. Who knows, maybe the whole recruiting team isn't like that, I would hope not since there are good reviews of Talemed out there. Steve and Wes, who aren't recruiters, are absolutely amazing. When talking to them, they sound intelligent, and are extremely professional and respectful. 11/02/2016
  • I did not actually work with Talemed. I had done extensive research into many agencies and choose them to be mine. However, in 5 weeks time, they did not even manage to get me an interview. They lied to me repeatedly for 3 weeks saying they were working on it and submitting me to jobs. Then after 3 weeks came back and said they couldn't submit me until my paperwork was done (it had been done the entire 3 weeks). It just hadn't come through on their side. So, obviously they lied when they said they were waiting to hear back from facilities. I switched in a hurry and Aureus had me interviewed and accepted a position in 5 days. They also repeatedly didn't have any assignments in areas of interest to me. I was giving them very broad areas to work with, such as any coastal area of Florida. 10/30/2016
  • everything has been near perfect 10/25/2016
  • Very good travel company. Has stood by me in the good times and the bad times. Has been very honest when I'm trying to find assignments. Love working with them. Will probably never need to work with another. Love the recruiters I've had. 10/21/2016
  • My recruiters were super friendly and very helpful. They responded to my emails quickly and were always happy to answer my questions. They worked with me to get the assignment I wanted. 10/21/2016
  • so personable 10/21/2016
  • Talemed was never bothersome with amount of calls/emails/etc about joining their company. Ryan gave me lots of good advice to use as a traveling nurse as a whole whether i chose Talemed or not. Talemed was very up front with everything required. Nothing hidden. Highly reccomend to others. 10/20/2016
  • No information was given to me about the facility other than the name of the hospital from my agency. Everything I found out about the hospital was on my own time and spoke with the VP of nursing at the hospital to ask questions. However, the VP did not give fully honest answers and did not seem very knowledgable about the floor and nursing as as whole. If I had no travel experience what so ever, I would feel extremely unprepared. 10/20/2016
  • I have only been a travel nurse for a short time, but so far my experience with Talemed and travel nursing has been really great! 10/20/2016
  • I have had an excellent experience so fat with Talemed. This is my first assignment and I am looking forward to many more with this company. 10/19/2016
  • Great company so far. No complaints. 10/19/2016
  • So far so good! Haven't begun my first travel assignment yet, but so far they have been extremely helpful setting everything up. 10/19/2016
  • Very happy with this company. 10/19/2016
  • Talemed has been a fantastic agency to work with. All employees I have had contact with have been knowledgeable, prompt, professional, and honest. I did have one issue with an extension of my contract, and multiple people worked hard to get things corrected to ensure I did not miss any work. They have made my experience great! 10/19/2016
  • Talemed is hands down the best company I've ever worked for. Honest, great pay,offers PTO, 401k. Just wow! 10/19/2016
  • Love working with Ryan Rosinski, very helpful, understanding, and always available. 10/18/2016
  • Overall this company is great and I definitely recommend it. Recruiters take the time to get to know you and aren't annoying by calling constantly. My recruiter is there when I need him but not overbearing. Pay is great, and they get you what you want! 10/18/2016
  • They have all been so stinking helpful! 10/18/2016
  • First travel company I went through. Great! 10/18/2016
  • They have been fabulous 10/18/2016
  • Ryan M is my recruiter he is awesome! He listened to what i wanted in a job and made sure i got it! Still checks on me know that i am on assignment as well! 10/17/2016

  • Talemed is a great company to work for 09/25/2016
  • Love my company! 09/24/2016
  • I have had great experience with Talemed. Not only my recruiter, the other staff members in the office also went out of their way to help whenever it was required. 09/23/2016
  • Love my recruiter,Allen San Diego. He really tries to get to know me and my goals in traveling ad well as in my career. 09/23/2016
  • Good company overall with no major problems. When issues came up they worked to resolve them. Pay raises upon resigning were low and at times, it was difficult to get info about future assignments at requested destinations, and esoteric paychecks are the complaints. 09/23/2016
  • Great company! 09/22/2016
  • Keep up the AMAZING work Talemed! 09/07/2016
  • Love TaleMed, highly recommend them 08/31/2016
  • Just finished my first assignment, and everything went really well! They got me into the unit I wanted, in the hospital I wanted with no problems. During the assignment, my recruiter called every week to check on how things were going. Definitely will be continuing with TaleMed and Noah! 08/26/2016
  • my recruiter has been amazing, very helpful with my first assignment. were a few times i had trouble getting in touch with my compliance coordinator but other than that everything has been great! 08/05/2016
  • Complete lack of professionalism from this agency. I do not recommend them as they do not disclose information truthfully and behave unprofessionally when they get caught lying. 07/25/2016
  • Great Company. 07/21/2016
  • My recruiter Kyle is great. Very helpful and is always available to answer my questions. 07/20/2016
  • I have just transitioned to Talmed from another company and so far I am beyond happy with my change. Ryan Mummert My recruiter has gone above and beyond to help in any way he can. From work to personal life you can tell that he truly cares about his travel nurses. 07/15/2016
  • My agent was very personable, friendly and stayed in contact thruought the assignment. Had a death in the family at beginning of contract and was very helpful at arranging time off I needed, and allowed me to make up days later. 07/15/2016
  • Used several agencies, and this one is the best by far. 07/15/2016
  • My recruiter, Ryan, has been great since day one! As a new traveler, he did a fantastic job answering all of my questions and making the transition seamless. This company offers everything on my must-have list. I would definitely recommend them to other travelers. 07/14/2016
  • My recruiter Ryan Mummert is awesome! He actually listens which is some times rare amongst recruiters! He didn't try to sell me on the high paying jobs when he knew the position I actually wanted. As a matter of face, he put in extra time to make sure my profile was done quickly so it could be hand delivered to the nursing supervisor when TaleMed's sales rep was in town!! Can't safe enough good things about him and this company. They have amazing assignments especially if you're looking on the East coast. 07/07/2016
  • I'm an ER nurse with 5 years experience. This is my first time traveling. I keep hearing I need to shop around with traveling agencies but with Talemed I dont want to and there's simply no need, because they are the best! I feel 100% supported. I feel like I could call anytime and they would handle anything that came there way in a professional & respectful manor. 06/13/2016
  • Talemed is a pleasure to work with. From recruiter, to completing paperwork, and even met the director of client services during my assignment. They have been honest, professional, and always respond to my inquires in a timely manner. My recruiterecruiter, Allan, has continued to follow up with me regularly as well. The regular follow up and even meeting in person makes me feel like they value me as an employee and I can trust them should I ever need anything. It's been great working with Talemed! 06/08/2016
  • Great company, insurance doesn't start until the first day of the month after your start date. Very accessible, friendly and accommodating. 05/30/2016
  • TaleMed has been a great company to work for! I don't feel like a number, my recruiter is always accessible, every concern I have had has been taken care of, I can't find a single thing to complain about and look forward to many assignments in the future with them! 05/19/2016
  • n/a 05/18/2016
  • . 05/18/2016
  • Wonderful agency to work with! Brad Baumer is an amazing recruiter! 05/18/2016
  • This company tried to make me do pre-hospital education for free, which is a violation of US Dept of Labor laws. My recruiter, Jeremy Anderson, would get whiney if I didn't agree with everything he said, then start talking in circles, then start getting condescending and obnoxious. If you look at their website, most of the recruiters appear to be overgrown frat boys, not healthcare professionals and certainly not adults who communicate in a professional manner. I would never work for this company again and I would never recommend them. 05/07/2016
  • I chose to work with this agency after seeing it highly reviewed on multiple sites. I'm not sure who is writing these positive reviews because they are dishonest and I was lied to mutiple times. They are not supportive at all.I actually did all the leg work to get the contract. They had me contact HR and set things up because they lied and said they had a contract with the facility when in fact, they did not. The facility signed a contract to work with them because they wanted me. I talked to the agency management about my concerns but they brushed those off and sided with my recruiter. They act more like car salesmen at this agency. 05/06/2016
  • My recruiter Ryan is absolutely amazing. I love that he took time to get to know me as a person rather than a number and pushed to get me the best!! 05/04/2016
  • I was told through this company I was able to get my compliance testing done by a specific date, I had told them prior to signing the contract when I was able to get these tests completed and they had agreed to the date. Then they terminated my contract stating that I didn't have the tests completed in time when I had appointments made and to top it off they charged me a termination fee and close to $4,000 worth of charges to the facility that terminated my contract. I have been arguing with HR about these fees and state that the companies lack of communication with the facility should not be at my dispense. Needless to say, if you go with this company be careful they'll turn their backs on you quickly when things are their fault. 04/22/2016
  • I have only done one assignment with them so far and I have had all positive experiences so far. I would definitely recommend them to another travel nurse. 03/29/2016

  • My recruiter was amazing! would definitely work with this company again. 12/15/2015
  • Great recruiter! 12/15/2015
  • 👍🏻 12/14/2015
  • I haven't had any of the problems that I hear other travel nurses complain about. 12/14/2015
  • I have recommended this company to others already. 12/12/2015
  • Didn't receive separate housing and hourly, no explaination why 12/11/2015
  • Good company. They have been able to find me an assignment in all the places I have wanted to go. Pay check is frequently inaccurate and benefits are not the best (insurance is not 1st day and 401k must be with company for 1 year). 12/11/2015
  • The only reason I would consider changing companies would be for better insurance. The United Healthcare insurance is no where near as good as I would like, especially when you factor in the cost for adding family members. It would be nice if their PTO accrual began after your first assignment with them, rather than kicking in after a year. 12/03/2015
  • Had a good experience, my recruiter was always there to answer any questions!! 12/03/2015
  • My first experience traveling was with a company who shall not be named but it was horrible! I decided to contact TaleMed about a year ago and it was a breathe of fresh air compared to the "other" agency. Kristen B., my recruiter is knowledgeable, kind, considerate and caring to my needs. Response time with her is usually a couple hours to 1/2 a day depending on how busy she is, which in comparison to the "other" agency I waited 2 or 3 days. TaleMed and Kristen B. so far have lived up to my expectations and I would highly recommend giving them a try! Constructive criticism for TaleMed as a whole I suggest that you look into raising your housing and travel reimbursement pay scales. I'm not sure what data these are ruled by but I think it is old data. Thanks! Joseph L., CST 11/18/2015
  • I have had good experience with Talemed. My recruiter, Jeremy, has been great. When I have had to go home a couple of times due to family emergencies, there were no questions asked. The shifts would be made up, and it would be worked out. No problem. I appreciate that kind of support. 10/26/2015
  • n/a 10/13/2015
  • Love love love talemed! :) 10/09/2015
  • Good company to work for. 10/08/2015
  • They are a great company to work for and make the entire process easy! 10/08/2015
  • My recruiter Kristen Bowles was an absolute gem during throughout my assignment. 10/08/2015
  • This was my first assignment as a traveler and I was very nervous but Liz Maffey from Talemed has been awesome. She worked so hard to get me the exact location I wanted and is always so quick to respond to emails and calls. She even gave me her personal cell for after hours. Great experience, I have no plans of working with anyone else. 10/06/2015
  • Liz Maffey is the best!!!!!! 10/05/2015
  • Great company! 09/27/2015
  • Great company, would travel with them again. 09/25/2015
  • JUST SAY NO 08/28/2015
  • About to start my first assignment in the next couple weeks. Thus far, my recruiter has been great. Compared to other agencies I have signed with, other agencies had me supply vaccinations and documents right after I signed up. Talemed kinda had me submit everything after I secured a job. So, I do feel rushed to supply all vaccinations and documents. They were able to get me a job just days after getting my new RN license! Not necessarily in my preferred city, but I'm happy with where I'm going for my first assignment. 08/28/2015
  • Very helpful 08/28/2015
  • Everyone at TaleMed has been very friendly and helpful! They made the transition into the travel industry very easy as this is my first assignment. Kristen is my recruiter and I am able to reach her 24/7 on her cell if I need her. I highly recommend TaleMed especially for first time travelers as the recruiters are very knowledgeable about the industry and really want to help educate you. 08/27/2015
  • None 08/27/2015
  • My recruiter Liz Maffey is AWESOMESAUCE!!! If things go wrong she fixes it quick. Can't say much for their housing, there housing people pretty much don't have a clue and DO NOT try and bargain with housing/hotels etc. But company has been very flexible with my scheduling which I love. 08/27/2015
  • My recruiter, Liz Maffey, is fantastic. She answered all my question and them some about travel nursing. She is knowledgeable of travel friendly facilities to secure good job placement. I love my job! Thanks Liz! 08/27/2015
  • . 08/27/2015
  • N/a 08/27/2015
  • Brad Baumer, my recruiter, the greatest!!! 08/26/2015
  • Horrible I would never recommend this company to anyone. Low pay compared to others. Travel reimburse over 13 weeks? Housing issues. Alot of miscommunication and no responsibility. And no contact from my recruiter to actually show some interest. Definitely does not care. I have a few other travel friend having lower pay issues not 1-2 dollars either... their only concern is signing a traveler. Nothing after that. Dont even answer calls. Pay was wrong, no one adjusted it 08/26/2015
  • Kristen Bowles is my Recruiter and she has been awesome, as a first time traveler. Talemed made the onboarding process super simple and very streamlined and efficient. I was working with another company also, that was much more difficult. Talemed is clearly the best for a reason. Kristen and Willie got me the same day I was submitted to my first assignment. Everyone I have talked to at Talemed have been amazing. They definitely set the bar high. 08/25/2015
  • I have had a nice experience with this company. I traveled with a different company for my first assignment, and it was not a nice experience. I was then referred to TaleMed, and have been with them ever since. Steve is my recruiter, and he knows the industry well. He took the time to explain the travel nursing industry to me. I can always get ahold of him, and I feel that he truly cares for his nurses. Highly recommend TaleMed. 08/20/2015
  • Talemed has been absolutely wonderful to work with. My recruiter is very on top of things, listens to my preferences and is always quick to respond to my questions. She has eased me into the world of travel nursing and made me feel comfortable. The travel company makes the experience very easy for me because of all the help they offer. I would highly recommend Talemed. 08/10/2015
  • I have been working with Talemed for the past two years. My recruiter's name is Steve Williams. Steve is an incredible recruiter. One thing I really appreciate about Steve is that he takes the time to get to know his nurses and he really cares about finding you the perfect placement! Other companies I have spoken with lack the personal connection I feel like Steve and Talemed provide. Steve makes himself available 24/7 and truly cares about the industry and those he works with. I highly recommend Talemed. Talk to Steve! He is the best! 07/22/2015
  • I was a first time traveler and I did not know much about the industry. My recruiter, Steve Williams, did a fabulous job in taking the time to inform me of the ins and outs of travel nursing. I had spoken to a lot of travel companies before choosing to work with Talemed. Steve was by far the most knowledgeable person I spoke with in the industry and Talemed was the most desirable company to work with. Steve is the best. I have traveled with him for four year and will continue with Talemed until I decide to no longer travel. Steve knows the industry and is great. I highly recommend him, and Talemed. 07/22/2015
  • Upon arrival to my assignment (2600 miles away from home) my hotel arrangements supposedly made weeks in advance were nonexistent and I slept in my car my first night. My housing was unsafe (like people literally put their hands on me) and it took weeks to move me. I called the emergency line three times during my stay after hours. It never worked. Not once. No one ever returned my messages. I slept in my car on three different occasions on this assignment because of housing issues. My recruiter rarely answered his cell or emails. I messaged him on his personal Facebook once during an emergency (was kicked out of a hotel for non-payment (I took company housing)) and that was the only way I was able to contact him. I didn't even get a paycheck for the first three or four weeks. I think the excuse was something about a college kid doing payroll. I can't even remember now. The hospital TaleMed took me to was WONDERFUL. I loved them then and still keep in touch with all of them. TaleMed came highly recommended to me and I see that they have excellent reviews from other travelers. So I'm not sure where the breakdown was for me. I was an experienced traveler when I went with them. And they were hands down the worst experience of my life, company only because I loved my hospital and had no issues there. I can't recommend them though. And I actually warn other travelers about them all the time. Every time a nurse comes to me with questions about traveling I always start out with "Well first, never EVER travel with TaleMed." 07/19/2015
  • Had a great experience with Talemed,stayed with them for a year 07/11/2015
  • Very professional and accomodating 06/08/2015
  • The experience I had with this company was amazing! As a first time traveler I was a little nervous but my recruiter Steve Williams was incredible! He was always there when I needed him and made me feel like a part of TaleMed from the start! 05/18/2015
  • My recruiter was AMAZING! I felt taken care of every step of the way. I would highly recommend Talemed, and would use them in any future assignments myself. 05/11/2015
  • no comment 05/08/2015
  • Great to work with! I have nothing but great things to say about my recruiter and his enthusiasm for helping me get an assignment 05/07/2015
  • Steve Williams my recruiter was awesome for the assignment I did for them in Colorado. My unit had closed at my permanent home base and they enabled me to earn a salary and experience the freedom of a travel assignment . I met some good friends and had a wonderful experiance with them . I'm currently retired after 42 years of nursing 04/29/2015
  • This is my first travel assignment, so I was a little nervous to begin with. I have to say my experience with my recruiter, Jeremy, has been awesome. I do feel that he looks out for my needs/wants in a contract. I feel that he took into consideration that I am new to traveling and eased me into the process. My experience with Talemed has been professional, and I feel my recruiter has been up front with me about contracts. I look forward to my continued relationship with Talemed. 04/29/2015
  • insurance was expensive and did not cover well. 04/29/2015
  • Steve Williams was my recruiter and I can't say enough good about my experience. This was my first travel experience and I was guided and supported the entire time. Communication was clear and continuous throughout each assignment. Steve pushed and worked daily to get me assignments and always kept me up to date. When I chose to find my own housing and screwed up royally, Karen stayed after hours to get me and my family into another site that evening. Any other person I had contact with at Talemed were so polite and helpful. I felt listened to and felt like they knew who I was. I was never just a number to anyone. Had I not found my dream job in my dream location (actually at the hospital where I had my first travel assignment) I would still be traveling today and will likely return once the kids are grown. Steve even helped me with an issue well after my traveling had stopped. I can only hope that Steve and everyone else will still be at Talemed. Every chance I get, I tell other nurses of my great experience with Steve and Talemed. This company and its employees have made travel nursing a great experience I will always remember. 04/29/2015
  • Fast assignment, always kept in contact. Pay checks never wrong. Love this company! 04/29/2015
  • Great company to travel with, i gave them what i was looking for and they searched for the right fit for me. Would work with them again, only negative review was the insurance benefits were very poor. 04/28/2015
  • Very helpful agency 04/28/2015
  • My recruiter, Steve, was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He made my first travel assignment enjoyable and and stress free! 04/28/2015
  • Everyone is so nice. 04/28/2015
  • Recruiter is great and personable... Doesnt treat nurses like a number and really gets to you you as a person. 04/28/2015
  • Excellent company to work for. Stopped by on my way through and got to meet everyone. Everyone knows me by name and makes me feel like family. Will probably never change companys. 04/28/2015
  • In my experience as a traveling nurse Talemed was the most accommodating. My recruiter listened to my specific needs and adjusted my contract according. He was available every time I called day or night and handled situations in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Talemed. My suggestion to new travelers is to be reasonable but don't settle. Adjust your contract to your needs....they need you as much as you need them so talk it out. A good recruiter will listen. 04/28/2015
  • Awesome experience--would highly recommend Talemed to new or seasoned travel nurses. 04/28/2015
  • I really enjoyed my time with Talemed. They gave me opportunities I didn't think I'd ever have and experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime. I would recommend them to anybody. My recruiter Steve was great. We were besties by the second assignment. Very personable, always available, and very knowledgable and honest. It was greatly appreciated. 04/28/2015
  • NA 04/28/2015
  • Talented employees worked together great and found me the best contracts possible for the best pay. They were always friendly and had someone available 24/7 if there was ever a concern. Steve was my recruiter. He was super friendly and worked his butt off to get me the places I wanted along with the accommodations I needed to make my wife and dog as comfortable as possible. They're who recommend to everyone who is looking to travel 04/28/2015
  • My recruiter Kristen has been a great help during my transition into travel nursing! She is very knowledgeable and always makes me feel like I am her top priority! TaleMed has been a wonderful company to work for and recommend them to everyone! 04/28/2015
  • Our experience with Talemed and our recruiter, Steve, was nothing but the best. Our assignments were exactly what we wanted and coordinated in a very smooth and organized fashion. We would recommend Talemed to any nurse considering traveling. 04/28/2015
  • I love my recruiter! She has been taking care of me for over 3years and I wouldn't trade her for any other! She got me my dream job in AK and is always there when I need her! She is a friend and a great recruiter! 04/28/2015
  • Recruiter was very knowledgeable and always availabile...I would highly recommend this company to any traveler but escpecially a new traveler 04/28/2015
  • Talemed was great! My recruiter, Steve, was the best...always responded quickly and very friendly and knowledgeable! 04/28/2015
  • This agency takes advantage of new travelers! The person responsible for finding housing is a joke...she is obviously overwhelmed and unorganized. I chose housing provided and had to arrange everything myself! I had to pay the deposit for the housing and never gr it back and the company didnt care. They deducted from my paycheck because I had to stay in a hotel for a week until they found me a permanent place. Never heard from my recruiter. Terrible company!! 04/28/2015
  • I absolutely love my recruiter. They are always available whenever needed. they work very hard to get things done correctly and in a timely manner. If an issue arouse, they were on top of resolving it. The other staff are very adequate with making sure everything is up to date and they do so in advanced. I just love working for this company, everyone is caring, friendly, and compassionate. 04/25/2015
  • Great agency! 04/17/2015
  • Great Company, gets me where I want to be, and the pay that I want! Talemed is awesome!! 04/17/2015
  • Always awesome! If I ever have a problem they are on it immediately and quickly work together to fix it. Love them and wouldn't trace with anyone else! 04/16/2015
  • My recruiter was enthusiastic and diligent, friendly and attentive. Any problems were quickly solved / all questions answered within several hours. My recruiter was upfront about what was available and always left me with the impression that when nothing was available, he was looking constantly for something I might like in addition to constantly monitoring for my preferred locations and positions. When assignments came open, he rapidly and efficiently submitted my application and frequently I would get a call within hours if not a day or so from managers interested in interviewing me. I felt the entire company was catering to me personally on every single assignment - from my recruiter to payroll to the housing coordinator. It seems I had them on the phone for hours sometimes and it always felt like I had all the time I needed to get my questions answered. Great company and I would work for them again without question were I to return to travel nursing. 04/15/2015
  • My recruiter really cared about me 04/14/2015
  • A very organized professional and nurse friendly company. Would recommend to anyone. 04/14/2015
  • Very good company. Always there when I need to call or need anything. Reliable in getting and keeping assignments. 04/14/2015
  • I have had an overall extremely positive experience w/ TaleMed. My recruiter is my singular contact and handles all my issues, so that I'm not on the phone tracking down 4 or 5 different people. Paychecks were prompt and accurate, and the one time there was a discrepancy it was corrected very promptly. I really enjoyed working with my recruiter, and he always aims to get me the assingments I want. My only problem is that a lot of assignments ask for ridiculous additional testing/labwork/physical exams. My agency did not have any resources in place to help me locate places to have this testing done (having to drive over an hour to find a place to do a specific kind of respiratory fit test, for example, despite already having been tested and fitted for my N95 mask for example, that my new assignment decided I needed at the last minute). They also would not reimburse any of the costs associated with this, so I ended up shelling out an additional $600 2 days before my new contract and my agency basically said, "If you can't pay for it you'll lose the contract." It left a bad taste in my mouth, to be quite honest. But otherwise it's been a great partnership and I feel my recruiter is a good guy who has my back. I would recommend TaleMed to new travel nurses as they're willing to walk you through the processes and they're fairly transparent in their business dealings with you. I've decided to stop traveling for now and return to staff nursing, but if I resume travel nursing in the future I would absolutely use TaleMed again. I trust them. 04/11/2015
  • I started with TaleMed and will end my career traveling with TaleMed. ALWAYS there for me. I left them once to get into a specific location but then came right back. Won't make that mistake again. My recruiter, Steve, is THE BEST!!!! 04/10/2015
  • Talemed is a great, small-medium sized, company with fantastic recruiters and staffers. They know your name, preferences, and truly care about tailoring your assignment to your needs. Steve Williams is my recruiter and I have recommended him multiple times; he works incredibly hard and has actually become a friend through the travel nurse process! Compared to other big companies (not to be named),Talemed has been made travel nursing personal, efficient, and very satisfactory. Use them!! 04/10/2015
  • I cannot say enough good things about TaleMed. They have been exceptional, going above and beyond even when it wasn't necessary. They're the best! 04/09/2015
  • a 04/09/2015
  • This is an excellent company! Everyone knows me by name when I call. My recruiter knows what type of assignments I want and where. He works hard to make sure I get the assignments I want with great pay. AWESOME group of people!! 04/09/2015
  • I got stuck in a scary situation on an assigment and this company backed me up 100% and got me out of there and onto a new assignment fast! 04/08/2015
  • n/a 04/08/2015
  • Overall good company. Pay is decent but not what I would want/expect. Easy to get a hold of recruiter and doesnt have used sales man approach. Always has assignments I want. 04/08/2015
  • I love my recruiter and this company. Wouldn't consider another. 04/07/2015
  • I feel that my recuriter hs been completely accessible to me and has come through in a timely manner in every situation. Completely satisfied with my company! 04/07/2015

  • Overall great company to work for. Would recommend as a great company. 11/27/2014
  • Submitted without permission, will not reimburse PALS as promised, does not reimburse nsg license as promised. Condescending and less than truthful recruiters. Did not take housing or health insurance. Unable to enroll in retirement until 1 yr emloyment. 11/22/2014
  • Very good agency! I have had nothing but good experiences with them. The recruiters are friendly and diligent about getting you into an assignment quickly. 11/22/2014
  • Great company!!! 11/18/2014
  • I had a great time working with TaleMed. If I had a question they answered it an went even further to make sure I understood my contract. The QA department spelled everything out that I needed it was a very easy process coming from a company that I was not happy with. 09/04/2014
  • I was having a difficult time with 2 back to back assignments. Being a traveler for only 6 months at that time, I was talking with other travelers about the benefits that their recruiters had offered them. I contacted my recruiter about sign-on bonuses, completion bonuses, airfare, ext...her response was, "Well, you must ask for them". I felt lil I was fed to the wolves. 07/03/2014
  • I had a great experience with them. 06/30/2014
  • Talemed has been fantastic from start to finish of my first contract with them. I would highly recommend them. 06/30/2014
  • n/a 06/30/2014
  • Have used several agencies before but have not found one I am totally satisfied with 06/13/2014
  • I recently went on an assignment to California (my first! ) and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! I have the best recruiter out there, Steve Williams, he is very personable and dedicated to helping his nurses get what they want out of an assignment! I had the time of my life because of him and talemed! thanks Steve! 01/07/2014
  • I also took my first travel assignment in Eagle Butte, SD and stayed in a motel room for 2 weeks, until a new friend took me in. I am 6 weeks into my 3 month stay and I have yet to hear a word from my recruiter. Although I am not currently having any issues, I expected to hear frmo her every once and a while. We also have yet to discuss anything related to my next assignment. Unfortunate for them I have already booked my next assignment with Cross Country. 11/06/2013
  • I have taken my first travel assignment with Talemed, and was sent to Eagle Butte, SD (the middle of no where). This is understandable since it is my first assignment, however, I was placed in a MOTEL ROOM. This is exactly what you would think. I live in one room with a bathroom. Kitchen not included. 09/18/2013
  • I will work with TaleMed again. They have taken very good care of me. 06/05/2013
  • TaleMed was great they answered every question I asked in a truthful tone. Just remember to ask questions no question is a stupid question, if their recutier does not the the answer when you ask it they will find out for you. 03/08/2013
  • Of all the choices in companies you have TALEMED is the best choice. I will work for them again. Honest and friendly. 10/03/2012
  • The reason why this company is growing is based on how they treat people. GREAT 10/03/2012
  • I recommend TaleMed 10/03/2012
  • Highly recommend 10/03/2012
  • I have worked with Liz for over two years as a recruiter and I highly recommend her 10/03/2012

  • comment2, 01/05/2009
  • 1st travel assignment and I will work with them again. I highly recommend them 10/29/2007
  • I have worked for three other companies and by far this is the best one. You notice the difference when you speak to the recruiters. You have the personal number and the treat you with respect. Housing and Insurance is outstanding 10/29/2007
  • My first assignment went well. I had many problems with my paycheck, but my recruiter was great and got it worked out. 10/29/2007
  • If individualizing a contract, you have to make sure that every detail is thought of and in the contract, If not they will not honor it. They do not have enough contracts for Housing so are not very knowledgeable about rentals and furniture. Not enough contracts in enough areas and not very agressive in finding you what YOU want, pressure to fulfill their wishes. Take advantage of new travelers. 02/28/2007
