Travel Nurse across America, a national supplemental healthcare staffing firm, recently underwent a thorough on-site review of its compliance with national standards addressing how staffing firms determine the qualifications and competency of their traveling nurses and surgical technicians, how they place them at client hospitals around the country, and how they monitor the healthcare traveler's performance while on assignment.
Joint Commission's Certification assures Independent Evaluation of Healthcare Professionals
