Every nurse that comes through their door starts with a conversation to get to know them and make sure the recruiter’s personality and knowledge base match the nurse’s needs. They also tailor how they serve nurses to be as convenient as possible by getting their preferences for mode of communication, frequency, etc.
Their medical insurance is through United Healthcare, with vision insurance through VSP and dental through Guardian! All three areas include multiple tiers of coverage that give you the flexibility to pick the best match for you and your family. In addition, NuWest offers a 401k plan after six months of continuous employment to all contractors. Unfortunately, at this time, they do not provide matching. Other benefits include a full license reimbursement, certification reimbursements, compliance costs related to the assignment, relocation reimbursement, and a sign-on or extension bonus.
NuWest has four pillars that drive their every move: transparency, impact, commitment, and specialization. As a traveler with NuWest, you will feel these within every communication during the process of finding a job, credentialing, and throughout your assignment!
