The Best Travel Nursing Companies 2021

The best Travel Nursing companies for 2021 are here! This year, we evaluated over 350 companies by aggregating 91,240 reviews from 6 of the most reputable review sources. The result is this objective list of 20 amazing travel nursing agencies.

Every company on our list has an average review score higher than those of companies on GlassDoor’s list of “Best Places to Work”. That’s why you should consider all 20 of them. We’re certain you’ll find numerous great matches if you do.

This our fifth year compiling company reviews this way. We do this because we know it’s extremely difficult and important for travel nurses to find the right agencies to work with.

It’s Difficult to Find the Best Travel Nursing Agencies

Part of the reason it’s so difficult to find the best travel nursing companies is that there are SO many. Meanwhile, the vast majority of travel nurses work for the 50 largest companies. The 5 largest companies have over 35% of the travel nurses.

Find your next travel healthcare job on BluePipes!

This all means that the vast majority of travel nursing companies have relatively few travelers working for them. Therefore, it can be difficult for them to receive a meaningful number of reviews.

To top it all off, there are tons of review resources. Therefore, the reviews are spread thin. Therefore, no single review source has a meaningful number of reviews for every agency.

Watch Out For Bad Information

We spend a ton of time researching travel nursing agency reviews in the process of aggregating the scores. We often come across shady and duplicitous information related to the topic. We like to share that information with you so you know what to watch out for.

Last year, we found several websites that engaged in “review seeding”. When a website launches a new review feature, they will naturally have no reviews. “Review seeding” is when they add a ton of fake reviews to get the ball rolling.

The idea is that visitors are more likely to leave reviews if the site already has reviews. Unfortunately, you can’t trust fake reviews!

This year, we found that a bunch of click-bait “content farm” websites had published articles on “the best travel nursing companies.” These are websites that publish massive numbers of articles on a wide range of topics with one goal in mind, to generate traffic by ranking high on Google’s search results.

These websites often hire inexpensive overseas writers with no knowledge of the topics that the website tells them to write about. Why is this a problem?

Well, we found one article that listed companies that haven’t existed in over 3 years. We found another article that listed several companies that have absolutely horrible reviews. And we found several articles that had flat out copied the work of others. In fact, we successfully filed two DMCA takedown requests against websites that had copied our work.

The saddest thing about this is that Google falls for it. As a result, these articles often sit atop Google’s search results.

We urge you to seek out reputable resources to ensure that you aren’t being led astray.

Our Process for Determining the Best Travel Nursing Companies for 2021

This is why we compile review scores for every company we can find on 6 reputable review websites. We enter the scores into a spreadsheet. We’ve done this annually since 2017. Here are the review sources we used this year:

Rating Services We Aggregate

  1. Highway Hypodermics
  2. Travel Nursing Central
  3. Facebook
  4. Indeed
  5. Glassdoor
  6. Google

The spreadsheet calculates the aggregate average score for each company. Then, we compare the scores for the current year to the scores for the previous year. We award bonuses for score increases and penalties for score decreases.

This way, we recognize great companies that had a great year. We strongly encourage you to review our lists from prior years. Nearly every company on those lists continues to have amazing scores.

Our scoring system is much more complex than we’ve described here. We like to be as transparent as possible. Therefore, we provide a highly detailed scoring example at the end of the article.

2021 Insights from Travel Nursing Company Reviews and Ratings

This year, we collected all the scores between May 23 and May 29, 2021. Each year, we like to share interesting stats and tidbits of information we recognized while compiling the numbers. Here are some from this year:

Quick Observations

  • Our 2019 article on the “Best Travel Nursing Companies” has been viewed more than 131,000 times! It’s our 10h most viewed article of all time.
  • Our 2020 “Best Travel Nursing Companies” article has been viewed more than 68,000 times.
  • We aggregated 91.240 reviews for 356 travel nursing companies this year! That’s an increase of 11,569 reviews and 32 companies from 2020.
  • The aggregate average score for all agencies was 79.12 in 2021. That’s up from 78.19 in 2020. That’s amazing given that the period we measured includes the peak of the pandemic’s challenges. Moreover, healthcare staffing agencies continue to outshine employers in other industries.

Highway Hypodermics

We tallied 3,122 total reviews on Highway Hypodermics this year. The aggregate average score for all companies on HH was 17.70. That’s an increase from 17.54 the year before.

That’s equivalent to an average score of 88.5 out of 100! This indicates that healthcare staffing agencies are providing travel nurses with excellent service.

Travel Nursing Central

We counted 11,173 scores on Travel Nursing Central for 2021. That’s an increase of 806 reviews from last year.

The aggregate average review score on TNC was 86.04 out of 100. That’s an increase of .65 points. Again, this indicates that travel nursing companies performed exceptionally well in 2021.


We counted 6,616 total reviews on Facebook this year. That’s a decrease of 723 from the previous year. That’s not a typo. The number of reviews on Facebook decreased last year as well.

Use the original Universal Job Application and Credential Management for travelers.

This year, we had to manually count scores for several agencies. That’s because Facebook was showing that some companies had no reviews even though Facebook displayed the reviews right next to the count.

We also saw some companies with a negative number of reviews. How is that even possible? Facebook’s review tracking is so bad that we’re certain it had an impact our rankings this year. We chose to press ahead and count the reviews.

Facebook is a mess. We wouldn’t even use them if weren’t for the fact that the travel nursing industry is highly active on Facebook.


We counted 20,250 reviews on Indeed this year. That means employees added 2,292 new reviews for healthcare staffing agencies this year.

The aggregate average score for all companies on Indeed was 3.75 out of 5 this year. That’s equivalent to 75 on a 100-point scale. That’s unchanged from last year.


The total number of reviews on GlassDoor was 20,756 this year. That’s an increase of 4,704 reviews from the previous year.

The aggregate average score for all travel nursing companies was 3.81 this year. That’s in increase from 3.66 the previous year. Moreover, it’s much higher than the average company rating on GlassDoor which is 3.3.


We counted 6,926 reviews on Google this year. That’s an increase of 2,239 reviews from the previous year.

The aggregate average score for all travel nursing companies was 4.46 on Google this year. That’s an increase from 4.42 the previous year. It’s equivalent to 89.2 on a 100-point scale.

Why You Should Consider All 20 Companies

As we do every year, we included 20 companies on our list of the best travel nursing agencies of 2021. Many people think the list is too long. We actually think it’s too small and here’s why.

First, every company on this list has amazing review scores. As I mentioned above, every one of them has review scores high enough to be in GlassDoor’s annual list of the best companies to work for.

Second, travel healthcare professionals MUST work with multiple companies in order to gain maximum exposure to the job market. That’s because different companies work with different hospitals. No single company has access to every job.

Background Info on Best Travel Nursing Companies List

Now that you’ve perused the list of best travel nursing companies, let’s take a detailed look at how we scored it.

Our scoring system is more tedious than it is complicated. Nonetheless, we’re big fans of transparency so we’re going to share exactly how the system works.

Review Sources and Score Collection

First, we use scores from 6 trusted review sources. We find every travel nursing agency we can on these websites and enter their scores into a spreadsheet. The websites we use are listed below:

Rating Services We Aggregate

  1. Highway Hypodermics
  2. Travel Nursing Central
  3. Facebook
  4. Indeed
  5. Glassdoor
  6. Google

Internal Staff and Travel Nursing Reviews

Highway Hypodermics and Travel Nursing Central accept reviews from travel healthcare professionals only. The other review sources accept reviews from both internal employees and travelers.

Own your own skills checklists on BluePipes.

We have several reasons for counting reviews from the both travelers and internal employees. First, the other sources get much more traffic than niche websites. Therefore, more people see them and they have more reviews. By counting them, we get a much clearer picture of how people perceive travel nursing agencies.

Perhaps more importantly, we strongly believe that happy internal employees are good for travel nurses. Happy employees have lower turnover which means a more cohesive and experienced team for travel nurses.

Fake Reviews and Review Solicitation

Everyone knows that fake reviews exist. That includes us. We check the reviews of every company that qualifies for our list. We look for fake reviews during that process. Over the years, we’ve discovered fake reviews for several companies. We disqualify those companies as a result.

We also know that “review solicitation” exists. We do not think this is a problem unless the company is paying for reviews. We believe it’s normal for companies to ask customers and staff to leave them reviews. If we see that companies pay for reviews, then we disqualify them.

Sample Size and Minimum Requirements

We also have minimum requirements for companies to make it on the list and receive bonuses or penalties. These requirements help solve problems related to sample size.

First, we require a minimum of 50 reviews to make it on the list. We also require a minimum of 15 reviews from healthcare professionals within the last year. We have similar requirements for bonuses and penalties.

Create your free Travel Healthcare Resume on BluePipes!

We do this to ensure that we have adequate sample sizes. For example, if a company has ten 5-star reviews, then they would have a score of 100 which is really high. However, ten is a very small sample size so it doesn’t necessarily tell us that the company provides 5-star service to their travelers.

Sample Breakdown of our Best Travel Nursing Agency Scoring System

Let’s take a look at a sample score. We’ll use Atlas MedStaff’s scores. Atlas is number 8 on our list this year.

Meeting the Minimum Requirements

First, we collect the number of reviews and review scores from the 6 review services and enter them into our spreadsheet. We add the number of scores together. This gives us the total number of scores. At this point, our minimum requirements are as follows:

Minimum Requirements for Best Travel Nursing Companies

  1. A company must have a minimum of 50 total reviews across all platforms. That’s not 50 for each platform, but 50 for all platforms combined.
  2. A company must have a minimum of 15 new reviews from healthcare professionals in the last year.

Again, these requirements ensure that we have an adequate sample size.

Atlas MedStaff has 369 total reviews. Therefore, they meet our minimum requirement of 50.

They had 65 new reviews in the last year. They had 42 new reviews on Highway Hypodermics in the last year. They meet our minimum requirement of 15 reviews in the past year from travel nurses because Highway Hypodermics only accepts reviews from healthcare professionals.

Calculating the Aggregate Average Score

After we enter the scores for each review source into the spreadsheet, we’re ready to calculate the aggregate average score.

In doing so, we must convert all the scores to a common scoring scale. That’s because the review sources use three different scales between them. TNC uses a 100-point scale. HH uses a 20-point scale. The others use a 5-point scale. We convert them all to a 100-point scale.

Here are the scores we collected for Atlas MedStaff this year:

Atlas MedStaff Reviews
Source Scores Average
Travel Nursing Central 57 91.8
Highway Hypodermics 158 18.3
Facebook 58 5
Indeed 29 3.9
GlassDoor 43 4.5
Google 24 4.3

Next, we add the number of reviews to arrive at the total number of reviews.

Atlas MedStaff Total No. of Reviews
Travel Nursing Central 57
Highway Hypodermics 158
Facebook 58
Indeed 29
GlassDoor 43
Google 24

Next, we calculate the weighted total for each review source. This is also where we convert all the scores to a 100-point scale. To do so, we multiply the scores by 20 for the rating services that use 5-point scales. We multiply by 5 for the rating service that uses a 20-point scale.

Here is how that breaks down for Atlas MedStaff:

Atlas MedStaff Weighted Total Value
Source Equation Total
Travel Nursing Central 57 * 91.8 5,232.6
Highway Hypodermics 158 * 18.3 * 5 14,457
Facebook 58 * 5 * 20 5,800/td>
Indeed 29 * 3.9 * 20 2,262
GlassDoor 43 * 4.5 * 20 3,870
Google 24 * 4.3 * 20 2,064
TOTAL SUM 33,685.6

Finally, we divide the weighted aggregate total by the total number of reviews to get the aggregate average score. Here is Atlas MedStaff’s calculation:

Atlas MedStaff Weighted Total Value
Weighted Aggregate Average Score
33,685.60 / 369 = 91.288888889

Aggregate Difference Score

With the aggregate average score for 2021, we can now calculate the “aggregate difference score’. This score rewards or penalizes a company based on the difference between this year’s average score and last year’s average score.

We use the following guidelines for the aggregate difference score:

Minimum Requirements for the Aggregate Difference Score

  1. To qualify for this score, a company must have had more than 50 total reviews in the previous year. This qualification ensures some modicum of adequate sample size.
  2. We cap this score at 5 points per company. This qualification also works to ensure some modicum of adequate sample size.

Let’s take a look at this score for our sample company. Atlas MedStaff’s aggregate average score for 2020 was 90.14013158. Their aggregate average score for 2021 is 91.28888889.

So, we subtract 90.14013158 from 91.28888889. We are left with + 1.14875731.

Therefore, Atlas MedStaff receives a bonus of + 1.14875731. We add that bonus to their aggregate average score for 2021. 91.28888889 + 1.14875731 = 92.4376462.

The easiest way to manage your travel nursing career.

And yes, all those decimal places are necessary. For example, our number 4 and 5 companies are separated by less than .06 of a point.

The Individual Difference Score

Finally, we calculate an “individual difference score” for each rating service. This score is similar to the aggregate difference score. However, in this case, we give bonuses or penalties based on the difference between last year’s score and this year’s score for each rating service.

The Individual Difference Score has several guidelines and qualifiers. We choose to keep this scoring mechanism private to ensure that our scoring system cannot be easily copied.

However, please contact us if you are a traveler our staffing agency who would like a full breakdown of everything. We’ll gladly reveal and discuss all the calculations, guidelines and qualifiers.

Wow, that was a lot of nerdy number crunching! Are you still awake?! If so, then you’re probably ready for a nap!! But, you’re an expert on our scoring system.

As always, we hope you found this information useful. Please contact us with any questions or concerns about our ranking system. And, join BluePipes for free so you can manage your travel healthcare career with ease!
