I am thrilled to be able to tell others that I am working with MAS Medical Staffing.  This company has far exceeded my expectations in all aspects of travel nursing. In the past I have worked with 3 other travel nurse companies; they met some of my requests/needs however it seemed as if I was just a number.  MAS Medical Staffing is so exceptionally different! I have received so much encouragement and help from each employee I have dealt with.
