ABOUT NEXTAFF of Des Moines, IA - Healthcare

In business for 4 years Healthcare focus 

As a leading healthcare and nurse staffing agency in Des Moines, IA, Nextaff understands that nurse and aide short staff situations are quickly becoming a critical success factor for most healthcare facilities.  Hiring nurses in Des Moines and Iowa is not only important to providing care for patients but also in maintaining positive morale for other nursing staff members.

It is also a vicious circle in that quality nurses and aides do not like to schedule at a facility known to have short nursing staff and by not doing so, creating an even larger short staff problem. The personality of the employee also directly impacts the short staff problem.

It is important to hire nurses and nurse aides who are reliable, professional and knowledgeable team players. It is important to utilize a nursing staffing agency in Des Moines who can cut through the surface to determine who will be a best fit for your facility.

We Recruit, Screen and Hire the following professional healthcare staff, as well as many other licensed and certified medical care providers:

  • Registered Nurses
  • Licensed Practical Nurses
  • Certified Nursing Aides
  • Administrative Staff
  • Allied Professionals

Not all agencies provide the same service. At Nextaff Des Moines you will quickly see the differences that make our agency superior to many others when it comes to hiring nurses. We understand that in this digital age it is often thought that technology should be used whenever possible to be efficient and cost effective. Therefore, many agencies do not conduct face to face interviews but simply check that the required credentials are in place to be able to fill an open shift just to fill the shift.

Nurses and Certified Nursing Assistants:

Congratulations. You have chosen a career in an industry that is honorable and in demand. Thank you.

At Nextaff, we know that there are many nursing staffing agencies to work with in the Des Moines and Iowa areas. We also know that not all agencies are the same.
