My experience with Aya has been great so far. I took my first assignment in Tulsa, Oklahoma & let me just say I met some great people. Traveling while working is a great thing to do cause you can make your money & also go places you never been before. My recruiter Chelsea has been great this whole time she is like a friend from home. If you’re looking for an Agency that’s always there & can answer all of your questions Aya should be your go to. I’m looking forward into many other assignments. Don’t be scared just do it .
I have had the wonderful chance to work with Vicky Roldan thru Aya Healthcare. She's an amazing recruiter that has jumped on any concern that comes up the moment she becomes aware of it so much so that she has quickly become my recruiter of choice. She makes sure that you have a complete understanding of the process from job search, onboarding, and thru the credentialing process, being so enthusiastic and supportive that you can't help but look forward to every conversation with her. I recommend her and her Aya team for anyone looking to travel nurse. 5 stars and then some!!
I had the pleasure of Working with Vicki! I can't tell you how much I really enjoy talking to her and how much help she has been to me. She works so very hard to help me find the right assignment. I'm currently in the NET MEDSURG unit and love it. She has from day one, been professional, kind, motivated to find me an assignment so much that I choose to only work with her and with Aya. I highly recommend Vicki with Aya Healthcare. If you happen to travel with her, I know she will help find you the perfect travel assignment. 5 stars all the way! Thank you Vicki!
I currently travel with Aya Healthcare and my recruiter, Alexis Gosse is truly the best. I signed up with them over a year ago and my first recruiter did not work out. I’m so grateful to Alexis for finding my current assignment in Washington State that I love. I have not made things easy for Alexis by listening to other travelers and thinking I was missing out. After thoroughly explaining things to me and helping me read beyond the hype, I realized I am getting the best deal. Thank you, Alexis Gosse.
I’ve been traveling with aya for a year and a half now and I am so glad I made the switch! I couldn’t have gotten any luckier with my recruiter, Vicky Roldan, she is the absolute best! She is the quickest responder, always on top of finding a contract in the location I want and incredibly reliable. I recommend her & aya to all my traveler friends.
Get yourself a recruiter like Joey Gambardella. He is so supportive, listens to your wishes, needs and concerns and is super fast at responding to everything. He will go above and beyond to get you where you want to be!
Hear me out! Shelley Nahn is the only recruiter you will ever need. She’s simply amazing!! First and foremost I have to mention how attentive she is. Not just to my travel nurse needs but to my personal needs as a whole. She remembers even the smallest details I share with her, regardless of it being work related or not. I love my travel job and she makes sure that I’m happy and taken care of. She is very professional and was great with communication throughout the whole experience of finding me a job and she honestly checks on me just about every single week! I feel wholeheartedly that she has my best interest at heart. She really took the time to get to know me and my personal goals for travel. She’s supportive and understanding. 10/10 Highly recommend! She has been wonderful to work with and has always been kind & honest, supportive, and so much fun to talk to. I appreciate her so much. Hands down the best recruiter you will ever need and WANT.
This is my first travel assignment and I'm lovin' every minute of it.This is something I've been wanting to do and now that the kids are grown I can. "My" team at Aya has been great to work with, esp Robby F. I can text or call him and he'll respond rather quickly. Michel'le M in Payroll, Zoe S in Housing, and Kathy in Credentialing have been a very helpful blast to work with too, and I love that I can just text any of them and get an answer.
AYA has been my employer since January 2023. With only two weeks to get ready for my new first assignment, my team at Aya worked efficiently and I was ready and waiting January 1st!In general one is expected to wait 3 months for health insurance when starting a new job , NOT with Aya! Day one insurance was unbelievable. Thats the first sign AYA cares about its employees, because how does one work in healthcare and spend the first 3 months on a new job caring for others while hoping not to need healthcare services.My team makes sure the assignment is working best for me. I was made aware that an incident occurred in the city I work in when my Travel Experience Specialist Taylor Sartori called to check in just to make sure I was safe and doing well!My Recruiter , Sam Dardrick is simply unmatched. He is responsive, listens, clarifies what he hears , and makes sure my contract will work for me exactly how I desire it to be. He's awfully easy to talk with, never dismissive and truly works hard to ensure my contract is working for me . I could not have been assigned a better recruiter! SAM YOU ROCK!To my payroll Master, Greg Palmer I thank you for making payroll as easy as ABCs, no unclear, unknown abbreviations representing deductions. I am about to start my third contract and am loving it! AYA everyday!
Monica Hamilton is wonderful and has this entire experience amazing!
I've been with Aya since April of 2022. I have worked with other agencies before, but my experience with Aya over this past year has been incredible largely in part to my amazing recruiting team, Jake Zirker and his assistant Ricky Lowdermilk. When I've had issues with my assignment or getting extensions ironed out, Ricky is insanely responsive and always willing to go to bat for me when it comes to hammering out the details of my contracts. He's been available every single time I had a question or needed follow up information or anything at all. Aside from that, he's extremely personable and makes me feel like I'm supported and cared about. I don't just feel like another number or client, which is important when you're out there traveling and can sometimes feel alone. I feel like I actually have a recruiter who cares and wants to make sure my work situation is happy and fulfilling for me. That means a lot. Truly can't say enough good things about him!!!!!
Giving a shout-out to Jake Zirker, my recruiter. He is the human in a massive organization. Aya has treated me well- but when credentialing department becomes illogical or cannot check their emails- Jake was the human reminder that checkboxes don't define nurses. To future Aya employees be realistic: you are not their only candidate. You'll get lost in the Aya numbers. You will send emails thrice (to credentialing). But then Jake or his assistant Ricky will randomly remind you that you are not just another number or a check box. No, I'm not jaded, I've just been a nurse > 15 years. If you need a human, Jake and Ricky are your team.
