Half of the NPs in our database have at least 10 years of experience.

Save Time and Money

by Staffing with a Locum Tenens Provider

Staffing with a locum tenens provider could save your facility $300,000 in expenses depending on your facility's location! When you hire a permanent NP, you are forced to pay additional expenses on top of their salary. Some of these expenses include, but are not limited to:

    • Benefits
    • Signing bonuses
    • Health insurance
    • Relocation fees

    Not to mention the hiring process for a full-time provider takes longer than that of a locum. This means while you are candidate searching, you are costing your facility money via gaps in patient care, interrupted work flow, low employee morale, and cost of lost referrals. When you bring on a locum tenens provider, all you need to worry about is the salary.

    Skills that Make Up a Good Nurse Practitioner
