Why Local Nurses Choose Aequor

My Aequor recruiter’s altruistic listening ear (she will always make time for you), and encouraging demeanor, it feels like being guided by a caring family member in addition to a competent healthcare liaison.

Pascale R. - ER/PCU RN, New Jersey

I didn't know an agency that genuinely cares exists until I got employed by Aequor. With current assignment challenges, I am most assured that I am not alone—they have my back, they truly care!

Chris F. - School RN, New York

I want to thank Aequor and Ebony for giving me the opportunity to join this community and to display my capabilities for success. I couldn't imagine a better recruiter by my side.

FAQs Answered

What job-related expenses does Aequor reimburse?

We will reimburse you for CEUs, licenses, certifications, scrubs and other necessities.

How soon before a shift will I receive notice that I’m needed?

Typically, we are able to notify nurses within 2 days or as far out as a month before the start of the shift. Occasionally, we receive a same-day request that may need fulfillment in as little as 1.5 hours.

What are the requirements and how do I maintain my eligibility for Aequor’s insurance benefits?

Once you are hired, your insurance benefits begin on the first day of work and you must work at least 36 hours per week to remain eligible.

Do I have to work full-time (at least 36 hrs/wk) to be employed by Aequor?

No. Many PRN nurses have full- or part-time jobs elsewhere and pick up extra shifts with us when they’re available. As long as you work at least four shifts per month for Aequor, you will still be considered an employee, although you may not be eligible for insurance benefits. But our local, per diem and PRN employees can also take travel contracts (usually 13 weeks) to maintain their insurance benefits.

What certifications do I need to have to work local or PRN for Aequor?

You must have a current AHA CPR card and the certifications required for your specialty (e.g., ACLS, PALS, NRP, and MAB).
