Inaugural Survey Enabled Thousands of Travel RNs to Rate Travel Nurse Firms on Agency Performance Standards Deemed Critical to Traveler Satisfaction

BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Gypsy Nurse, the largest online travel nursing community and

travel nurse resource platform, today announced the release of its inaugural Travel Nurse Agency Evaluation results, available now on TheGypsyNurse.com.

The goal of the survey was to enable travel nurses to make informed decisions when it comes to choosing the agency that's right for their unique needs and to help agencies better understand what's important to the travel nursing community at-large. To create this comprehensive evaluation, The Gypsy Nurse organization hired two top independent market research firms to create a quantitative evaluation with sound methodology to survey travel nurses. All data was analyzed by these firms in-house and was presented to The Gypsy Nurse as an independent completed product.

Over the past several months leading up to today's announcement of the results, the research firms reached out to over 100,000 travel nurses to rate – based on their personal experience with agencies – key performance areas that the community had indicated were most important to them. This survey included some of the biggest agencies and boutiques to give nurses a diverse set of results.

The final results of the survey were broken down into five key performance categories, with top-scorers being designated as "Overall Winners" followed by "Finalists" and "Honorable Mentions."
