I have been a traveling nurse with Response 1 Medical Staffing for over a year and have been able to work at five outstanding facilities through them. Response 1 has taken care of me by carefully matching my work experience with a hospital whose work environment is challenging, as well as one who will allow my attributes and abilites as an OR nurse to shine. During my tenure with Response 1, I have made enough money to be able to live a debt-free lifestyle and vacation no less than 4 times a year. My recruiter, Michelle Hoepermans is exceptional. Her attention to detail and honesty are two of her best qualities. She will fight for me, she will always push to get me the best shift, the most money and even the nicest view in my apartment. I have nicknamed her "free upgrade" because she is always trying to get me the best available. In addition, Michelle asks all the right questions upfront so that when I do interview with the manager, it is for a position I am extremely excited about. I would recommend any good, quality nurse to this company as they are exceptional and make you feel like part of their family.

My name is Kimberly Ward. I am a RN and have been traveling with Response 1 for the last 6 months, but have been a travel nurse for the last year with 2 different companies. Since I love to travel nationally and internationally I thought travel nursing would be the career field for me. Since I have worked with Response 1 I have found a great company, owned by a talented person and staffed by wonderful people. This is where I want to be!
When I initially contacted Response 1, I was blown away by the helpfulness of the person answering the phone. My recruiter presented a good overall picture of what Response 1 offered for pay rates, housing, and benefits. I was so impressed because no matter what I needed, housing, which allows pets, more housing allowance, different insurance, the opportunities were all there for me.
On my original assignment, the first weekend I found myself placed in a difficult situation between a Doctor and the good of my patient, without support. I ended up making the Doctor angry. The next morning I called to notify my recruiter of the situation. Expecting to get voice-mail, I found myself speaking with her directly. She was compassionate and understanding about the situation, I found myself relaxing and was able to go to sleep assured I still had a job.
Since my assignment was close to Sacramento I was able to make a visit to the office of Response 1, where I was greeted like a celebrity. Everyone in the office took time out of their schedule to stop and talk with me, welcoming me to their family. Each person assured me if I needed anything, to contact the office and they would help in any way they could. I have put that promise to good use and still find compassionate, helpful people on the other end of the phone.
So be sure to check us out.
I have been a traveling nurse with Response 1 Medical Staffing since January of 2005 and have contracted with four hospitals through them. Response 1 has taken care of me by personally knowing the hospitals and area they send me to. If I want extra hours they will work with the hospital or make arrangements with nearby hospitals. In addition, the benefits package is personally customized to meet MY needs.
My recruiter, Michelle Hoepermans, is amazing. She is a fairy godmother, a sister, a best friend, and a dedicated professional all in one powerful package. She is always available, very patient and understanding. She goes out of her way to find answers and solutions to my husband's many questions and concerns about our contract and assignment. Michelle sincerely cares about everything that concerns me and my family, right down to our dog!
I would recommend any good, quality nurse to this company, especially in the care of Michelle!

My name Meuy (May) Lee. I love to travel and make LOTS of money at same time. Taking the first step to be a traveling nurse was pretty scary. Of course, you all these unanswered questions and concerns….(i.e. housing expenses, car rentals, guaranteed hours, getting paid on time, health benefits, etc). Response 1 Medical Staffing has all these to offer and more. I have been with them since the beginning of this year and I love it—thanks to a friendly referral. Michelle Hoepermans, my recruiter (who became my close friend), listens and responds to my requests and needs in a prompt and timely manner.
She has made me feel important and part of their staffing family. Michelle is able to place my requests for days off as a priority to return home to visit my family. Within less than a year, I have made enough money to be able to take several vacations and am in the process of buying a house. When you are ready to make LOTS of money and meet single men, I would highly recommend you to come and join with Response 1 Medical Staffing. Checkout all the benefits they have to offer.

I have been a traveling nurse with Response 1 Medical Staffing since June 2004 and worked at 2 different hospitals with them. I know that when I go to a new facility with Response 1, there are no surprises and my assignments, as well as my housing are always great. The money is great with Response 1 and there is no other company I can travel with and make the kind of money I do here in California. I have been able to do lots of things I wouldn't have been able to do if I didn't work for Response 1 Medical Staffing. For instance, I am able to afford to do lots of traveling on my days off, I have taken vacations, and I have been able to go home to Missouri about every 6 weeks to see my family. My recruiter is the best part of this company and I like how she stands behind what she tells me. If she offers a 'too good to be true' deal she does not back down on what she originally offered me. I have been traveling since 2001 and unfortunately I have had this happen to me several times with other companies. They give you great numbers but when the contract comes out it's all different. That is how came to Response 1 initially. My recruiter made me the same deal that another company had made, but the difference she put it on paper. Since then, I have referred several other nurses to her for she is a very good recruiter. When you have a problem all you have to do is call her and she is on it. In a very short time she will have your problem fixed or have a answer for you. There is no waiting days and then never getting a true fix for my problem like with other companies. I would recommend any good, quality nurse to this company as they are the only company to travel with in California. They have a number of great assignments and if they don't have where you want they will try to get you sometime that you want. The housing allowances and the meals and incidental program is great. This allows you to make the most money. Their referral program is excellent, which I have collected a few times. Another good thing is I have been to educational programs that they have paid for. They encourage education and keeping up in your profession.
I was happy with my travel company before but when I switched to Response 1, it was like upgrading from a Pinto to a Mercedes Benz!
Through a recommendation from a fellow traveler, I was introduced to R1MS. From the very beginning, I was treated with the utmost professionalism. They considered me and my specialty prior to placing me. They understood that I didn't want to be placed just anywhere . Cheree Love and all of her staff at R1MS are a great team. They work together to make things happen because they know the travel nurse industry business so well. Like a nurse, you want to be competent in your field. It's the same when finding a nurse staffing company. R1MS is that kind of company!! I would and have highly recommended them.
Hello, my name is Erline Jones; I have been traveling with Response 1 Medical Staffing since May 2008. Traveling with Response1 has been a great experience for me, which is important since I am away from home and family. Response 1 treats you like family, the staff is hard-working, they respond quickly to your needs. I appreciate everything they have done to ensure a good working environment for me personally. I enjoy working with my recruiter, she is caring and does all she can to meet my needs. All in all my travel experience has been enjoyable; I truly am blessed to be a part of the Response1 Medical Staffing family, as they care about their employees.
I joined the Response 1 Medical staffing family in 2007 and since then, they have taken care of me during my traveling assignments. Coming from a foreign country, it was a challenge for me to adjust to the new life and to working in the United States. Response 1 had helped me to overcome the obstacles that were ahead of me. The staff is always there for you. There is always a person to talk to for assistance even in the middle of the night. They professionally handled all concerns and problems which have risen before, during and after an assignment.
Working for Response 1 is one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my nursing career. They helped me to grow professionally and be competent in my field of specialty. I have worked with other companies but so far, none had met my expectations except for response 1. A good paying job, a staff that looks after you always, and a company that accepts you as a family member, what else could you ask for more?
I’ve been involved with Response 1 since September 2007, and have been highly satisfied with their support staff. Response 1 Medical Staffing recruiters have been there to help 24/7 and always ready to answer any questions. Payroll is always on top of things too.. The company has guided me through all the needed requirements, and gave support in every aspect of the nursing process, and always make you feel part of a family. Definitely Response 1 is the best travel nurse company out there. Highly recommended!
I could not have asked for and received a better experience (as a first time traveler) than what I was given with Response 1. Special thanks to Sandy and Michelle for making me feel at home, and for always responding to my e-mails and phone calls. Very special thanks to Michelle Hoepermans for guiding me through all of the in’s and out’s as a first time traveler. I am blessed to have worked with R1MS.
Michelle is hands down the best recruiter I have ever dealt with. She is very honest and always presented a realistic view, not too optimistic or pessimistic. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with her.
