First time travel nurse on my second contract with Aya. They are absolutely the best! My recruiter Mariann is especially great, she has been there for me and so helpful at all hours from the very beginning! I really appreciate her going to extra mile every time to fit my needs. They always have someone you can contact at all hours which is nice. They always have first day instructions for you and are punctual which is important to me when going to a brand new hospital. They have tons of benefits that other travel companies don’t seem to have as well!

Traveling has been made easier with Aya helping with education, checking on contracts and contacts with prospective hospitals . Mariann Madden and her team have been easy to work with, helpful with scheduling needs. Travel nursing would be much more difficult without their help. Travel nursing is a great way to see how other facilities do things and to get a different prospective on things culturally and geographically.

I am just entering my second contract as a travel nurse, and I am very pleased with my experience working with Aya. I got paired with Mariann Madden, and I couldn't be happier with my experience so far. She and her team have been extremely helpful and responsive through all the preparation to begin traveling to now extending my first contract. The organization of the team have made it a seamless transition from a staff nurse to a travel nurse. I love that I now have more say over my schedule and can see myself traveling with them for years to come :)

I was hesitant to crossover the travel nursing world. But I am glad I did. My transition from staff to travel nurse has been easy. As a newcomer, my recruiter Marianne M has been amazing. She is consistent, reliable and an advocate for her nurses. She will go the extra mile to answer all my concerns promptly whether it be via phone or email. What I enjoy about traveling is nothing is redundant. Every 8-13 weeks it is a new adventure, new people, new memories.

I love working with Aya! They take excellent care of their nurses and are always available when I have any questions or issues. There are so many adventures to be had as a traveler. And I have the very best recruiter! Her name is Mariann Madden and I could not do this without her. She genuinely cares about me and my career!

Decided to take the leap 1 year ago and start agency nursing within my state. Mariann made this process so easy for me and was available to answer any and all of my many questions. She was able to help me find positions even when I was picky about hours etc. She also was able to help me get a position in an area I've been wanting to try. Highly recommend!

I just began my travel nurse career earlier this year, and it has truly been the best experience, mostly thanks to my recruiter Mariann!! She is so proactive and down to earth, easy to talk to and I feel is always looking with my best interest in mind. I am about to finish my first travel contract in VA and I am looking in florida next! Travel nursing makes it so easy to travel and I am so blessed that I have Mariann as my recruiter to guide me along the way! 10/10 would recommend!

I have been working with Aya Healthcare since 6/21 and have had nothing but the best experiences. My recruiter, Mariann Madden is THE BEST. She has made my transition from staff to travel nurse so easy and stress-free. She sends me recommended contracts based on what I'm looking for and places I want to go, she is super timely in submitting my documents to the right places so I have a better chance at getting responses, and she is always consistent with communication. Mariann is just genuinely an awesome human being and working with her has just been a pleasure.Aya Healthcare is a great agency to work with. They are very timely in responding to questions, problems, concerns or requests. The agency has been really easy to work with in terms of getting my profile set up and updating it with each contract. Their website is super user friendly and I am loving the online time keeping they added to the website.I also LOVE that Aya invites travelers to events which allows me to connect with other travelers in the area as well as meeting members of the Aya Healthcare team. I would definitely recommend working with Aya Healthcare to anyone interested in travel nursing!

My recruiter, Mariann, is amazing, I have literally followed her from another agency, she makes everything better! That being said, everyone at Aya is easy to work with, have been great communicators and supported me along my travels through the country. And they have so many great job opportunities to pick from, both locally and around the country, depending on what you need as a nurse. And... They give gifts to their employees which is awesome, like new FIGS (best scrubs ever) on your birthday! Just one reason they are the superior nurse travel agency!

Aya Healthcare has been the absolute best company I have ever worked for. I been with them since December 13 of last year. My recruiter Megan is an advocate through my tough moments, and listened to me, and what I was looking for. I remember I did not want to go to the west coast (being an east coast kid all of my life) and I ended up extending over and over again. They make it so easy for you to find assignments and they find what is best for you. I am beyond happy being a traveler and I will always choose Aya before any other. I recommend it 100% to ANY nurse that is interested in having extra cash.

Mariann Madden is the saint I've been looking for in nursing. She's very knowledgeable about travel nursing and contracting - I never have to worry about anything except just doing my job, and doing it well. If I have any concerns, she'll actually escalate my concerns as needed. And that was what really sealed my decision to work with Aya Healthcare. My contract had started to deteriorate to the point where it was putting my patient lives at risk, and I had let her know how it was going. She escalated my case and I was pulled two days early from my contract because I was afraid of losing my nursing license due to negligence or malpractice based on certain unsafe staffing ratios given the assignment's acuity.I am grateful to Mariann always looking out for contracts that might fit my needs, and for looking out for me during my contracts. She is always there to give market updates and help keep you employed for the best rates possible.I've grown exponentially ever since I started traveling, and this has been the most rewarding part of working for Aya. In these past 6 months, I feel like I've learned a year's worth of knowledge from these different specialty units. Being paid to do an excellent job while also learning - there's nothing better than this to me.Highly recommend Mariann Madden if you need a recruiter. She's here for you, and not here to take advantage of you. Which in my opinion is a big fear a lot of new travelers have in regards to picking a recruiter. Or why they should have to pay a recruiter at all: Well I'll tell you, after working 36 hrs at an unfamiliar place, you're going to want peace of mind in regards to anything administrative relating to your pay and your consistency of employment. It's worth it.

My favorite thing about travel nursing is getting to meet new co-workers in different parts of the country, learn all the different ways hospitals do things, and learning new evidence-based practices. The thing I love most about working with Aya is how easy they make it to find an assignment and help you with getting everything ready for the assignment. A few things I appreciate most about my recruiter is that she is always enthusiastic about assignments, gets back to me quickly when I have questions, and helps me find the specific assignment that fits my nursing skills.
