This company is a great company to work for as a travel nurse. The recruiter was great! She still contacts me even though I have not been with the company since the end of 2015. The typical work day is the same as any other shift position for the registered nurse. I worked at two different hospitals and I was able to experience different management styles and electronic medical record systems from the one that I had with my previous full-time place of employment. The most enjoyable part of the job was the chance to travel and meet new people. The hardest part of job is unrelated to the actual job, but was being away from my loved ones. Overall, I loved working for this company and would have stayed if I did not want to get away from bedside nursing.
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Bremerton, WA – 15 February 2017
I chose to travel to Washington state to visit family. The hospital I was assigned to was a very welcoming and progressive hospital. The culture of people were different than what I was used to but very friendly and supportive.
A great travel nurse company to work for. My recruiter is awesome and always makes sure I have everything I need. The pay is great and I have great benefits. I am a home health travel nurse and have enjoyed meeting many new people. Very satisfied employee!!
Excellent experience and opportunity in working various hospitals

Cirrus was a great company to work for, in that they always go the extra mile to meet the desires of their staff RN's. While I was working with Cirrus, my mother in law became sick with cancer and Cirrus was wonderful about finding me a position close to her home so I could take care of her when she needed the assistance. All assignments I worked for them were excellent experiences.
The company is a great company to work for. The management staff care about the staff and attempt to compensate fairly. While compensation could have been better as with other companies, it was somewhat fair based upon market.
Traveling Therapist (Current Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – 18 February 2015
I work with elderly patients. I maintain current level of care to each patient. I have fun and enjoy working with this population. My co workers are great to work with because of their dedication and all working together as a team. The most difficult times I have come across has been that the patient gives up or they get easily fustrated and do not want to be bothered. I learn something new everyday from my patients or my coworkers.
time for writing or putting input about patients progress in the job
at times not enough time to put info of patient and get told that it needs to be put in that day
The management are not leaders, and they don't know how to treat their employers. There is no room for growth and they didn't have the proper training to show people how to do their job. The company is behind on paying bills, but they keep buying things. It's the worse company that I have every worked for.
Travel Nurse (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – 22 September 2013
My review is that they were wonderful to work with. I only had one issue and it was with setting housing prior to my arrival, somehow fell through the cracks. It came together the whole assignment in hours. I worked at the VA on Fort Bliss, TX. I was hired for Flu shot season for VETS, but within one day, was given a new assignment doing chart review for Colon Cancer Screening. Met some wonderful people.
Travel, meet new people, interesting work
Issues with housing, suit case lost by airline, hassles for security clearance on base
Cirrus Medical was my first "crack" at traveling/contracting as an SLP. My first recruiter was FABULOUS! She was caring, she listened and she seemed invested in making me feel secure in my position and answered all of my questions. Unfortunately, she took another job and I was passed along to another recruiter. Although the recruiter I was assigned to was pleasant and wanted to help me find another assignment, I could tell by some of the verbiage she used "...Your on my list so I'm gonna help you..." that I was just another number. The job market in the area I am able to work in is very slow right now. Needless to say, I STILL do not have an assignment, which means NO INCOME. I received a letter last week from COBRA stating I qualified for insurance as I was "involuntarily terminated," approximately 2.5 weeks from when my assignment ended. Wow. HR's explanation of the letter further summarizes what I perceive my worth is to this company: I'm just another #. And since they haven't been successful in finding me another assignment based on my location requirements, they didn't "hold" my insurance benefits. Presently, I have no income, no insurance and a rather yucky aftertaste of my experience with Cirrus Medical. Needless to say, I'm actively searching and in desperate need of another job.
