With the right team in your corner, travel nursing can be an ideal career.
From competitive pay and benefits to freedom and flexibility, travel nursing has a lot to offer. But traveling to a new place can be daunting, and you want to be confident that you don’t have to problem-solve on your own. That’s why we’ve built a team that puts your needs first. Amare is big enough to offer you access to a network of over 3,500 top-ranked hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and outpatient rehab centers in all 50 states. And small enough to be on a first-name basis with each of our travel nurses.
The most positive recruiter experience I’ve had by far.
— Jane Coyle, Travel Nurse

We take the time to listen and get to know you as an individual, helping you find jobs that match your experience, your interests and your needs so you can love what you do.
Quality over quantity
We’ve spent more than 16 years carefully building relationships with facilities that share our values and put people first. You can count on being appreciated for your talent, care, professionalism, and doing the best work of your career.
Chart your own course
From the bright lights of the big city to the relaxed style of a smaller community, from snow-capped mountains to warm weather resort towns coast to coast—wherever you want to go, whether it’s across the country or across town, Amare can help you get there.
Our journey to a million smiles starts with yours
Collaborate with a team that thrives on providing you with the total package: respect, personalized service, excellent pay and benefits and a staff that truly cares about you and your career.
Every journey starts with a single step
We get it—travel nursing can seem like a leap. That’s why we work to make it feel like a series of achievable steps. Before you know it, you’re pursuing the career of your dreams.
We handle the paperwork
From helping you navigate credential requirements for every job to reimbursing you for travel and license fees, we’ll take care of the details and make sure every assignment goes smoothly.
Work as much as you want to
Before your assignment is up, we’ll be ready for you with options—either extending your current placement, starting a new one right away or scheduling your next start date after you take some well-deserved time off.
Better pay, fewer expenses
Travel nurses can expect to earn up to 20% more than staff nurses. Housing stipends, per diem, comprehensive insurance, 401(k) match, group discounts, sign-on and referral bonuses—it all adds up to more money in your bank account.*
*Employees are eligible for matching 401(k) contributions after 3 months and 390 hours of work
A team you can trust
We will always be open and honest with you. That means clear expectations about your contract, housing stipend, pay and benefits. It also means you get the confidence that comes from knowing we have your best interests at heart and will advocate for you in every situation.
Bring your friends (furry or otherwise)
Amare travel nurses bring family members, pets and even their friends. We frequently arrange healthcare jobs for spouses and friends, and you get a referral bonus for each one.

This was my first travel assignment and experience going through the process. I literally cannot imagine having a better recruiter. — Jeremy Case, Travel Nurse
Brittney treats her nurses like they are her sisters and brothers. She wants nothing but the best for us. — Becca Pape, Travel Nurse
