CRU48 About Us

You're valuable...
and it's about time you receive the pay & benefit you deserve.

CRU48 understands that the shorter assignments and rapid placements that come with crisis positions require more commitment. That's why we work hard to make sure you are well compensated with higher pay rates and great benefits.

CRU48 Benefits Include:

Top Pay Rates: CRU48 travel nurses consistently earn higher hourly wages than both permanent staff members and more long-term travel healthcare professionals. On an 8-week assignment with 48 hours guaranteed, that means a very generous salary!

Guaranteed Hours: On most CRU48 assignments, you are guaranteed up to 48 hours, and on some assignments, that number could be even higher.

401(k) Retirement Plan: 401(k) Retirement Plan: Enroll after only 90 days of continuous employment, and defer up to 30% of your income, tax-free.
