If I request a traveler, what can I expect from PRCS?
First, a PRCS Healthcare Manager will get a clear understanding of your individual and specific need, including the clinical skills, experience and attributes desired.
Next, the PRCS recruiting team searches our database for the perfect match! Several complete candidate profiles, which meet the requirements, will be sent to the appropriate contact. PRCS profiles include a comprehensive work history, skills checklist and assessment, credential & license verifications, and completed references. We strongly encourage our facilities to be actively involved in the candidate selection, therefore, we welcome direct interviews with our candidates.
Then, once a candidate is selected, the PRCS travel team gets to work to mobilize the traveler. And finally, a complete JCAHO HR file is sent to your facility prior to the traveler starting the assignment. This file includes all necessary credential, health, and background documentation.
