APS Staffing Adds International Nurse Staffing Option

Mon, 03/21/2016

The APS Staffing Program has added a unique solution to help solve your staffing challenges. At a time when demand for nurses is rising due to our aging population and healthcare regulations, hospitals are faced with difficult-to-fill nursing positions. Many hospitals are successfully solving this challenge by recruiting international nurses.

Under one agreement with APS Staffing, your organization has access to nearly 50 vetted, trusted staffing firms. To offer you international nurse staffing, our program has selected O'Grady Peyton International (an AMN Healthcare company), to provide this service to hospitals in Kansas and Missouri. O'Grady Peyton has 35 years of experience recruiting and licensing international candidates.

If you have nursing needs, consider these key characteristics of professionals recruited by O'Grady Peyton:

  • Experience — average of 10 years of post graduate experience in U.S. type acute care setting
  • Education — nearly 50% are BSN or MSN prepared
  • Current Credentials — Current U.S. RN license, NCLEX passed, IELTS passed, Visascreen
  • Certifications — BCLS, ACLS, PALS, NIH Stroke Scale, and any unit specific before start

The APS Staffing Program can provide international nurses to fulfill long-term needs with options to hire. Contract lengths are typically 18-24 months, and there is no fee associated with conversion. O'Grady Peyton has nurses consistently in its pipeline who are English-speaking, screened, approved for permanent U.S. residency, and ready to work for you. It also has a single all-inclusive bill rate, keeping nurses on its payroll while providing all relocation and support services nurses and their families need.
