Heard of a TravMed USA staffing agency?

  1. Hi. I actually registered for this site hoping to be able to get help/info regarding my case. I am from the Philippines and a RN at my native country. I have signed an employment agreement with TravMed USA a year ago. I have a visa screen certificate and an immigrant visa already and am ready to go to the US. The thing is, TravMed hasn't called any of us yet for deployment. So please, if you have info regarding this company,let me know.
    I would really appreciate it. Big thanks to all!

    I know of several people who were able to go to the US because of TravMed. Althought some of them were not able to leave immediately eventhough they have received their visas already. One reason maybe is that TravMed is a staffing agency and that they have no position to fill up. I have a friend who left when his visa was to expire the 6 months validity. So far, I have not heard anything bad about TravMed. This is what I know about TravMed.

    Hi! So nice to get a reply from someone who's also from the Philippines. May I ask if your friend took the NCLEX in the US? In my case, I still have to take it there which means that I have to work as a CNA for a while. The salary they offered me as a CNA is only $7.28/hr. My family will be joining me 2-3 months after I leave. How are we gonna survive with that salary? I got sort of desperate that I thought about having my contract bought-out.

    Hey, thanks for the info. Hope to hear from you again.

    Hi, I worked for TravMedUSA for about 5 years until about a year ago. They have Changed names since then. I loved the Company I always had great Housing and the recruiter was great about getting me the assignments I wanted. I went full time at a small hospital in Maine. But I would not hesitate to go back to TravMed even though the recruiter is no longer with them. I think they are call Allnurse's now but I'm not sure. If I can answer any of you question e-mail me with the subject line of TravMedUSA .
