NurseNow Staffing founder David Kissinger (RN) saw an opportunity to impact the industry and career he loves: nursing. Having worked in healthcare for over 30 years, with over 15 as a healthcare manager, David is in the unique position of understanding the needs of nurses and those who hire them.

David founded NurseNow Staffing on the principles of caring, excellence, and respect. His vision has enabled NurseNow Staffing to leverage the growth and appeal of the gig economy to match nurses who want flexibility, fair pay, and freedom with medical facilities that have unique — and often immediate — needs. As a result, NurseNow has become the fastest growing nurse staffing agency, specializing in nurse staffing in the decentralized clinical research market, in the nation.

Our Mission and Vision

NurseNow’s mission is to advance the health of our diverse world through innovative, patient-centric nursing solutions.

We envision a world that prioritizes patients, values nurses, and ensures healthcare equity for all.

The NurseNow Difference

Our core values of caring, excellence and respect truly set us apart in the nurse staffing industry.

Caring. We truly care about our clients and nurses, and that care propels us to ensure we are meeting their needs. For us, it’s not just about the next hire or the newest contract — it’s about relationships. We take the time to get to know our clients, so we truly understand their needs and can match them up with the best nurses for their facilities.

Excellence. Patients deserve the very best care, which means they deserve the very best nurses. We uphold high standards of excellence for our nurses, and we hold ourselves to a higher standard too — which means we’ll always deliver exceptional service to our clients.

Respect. As a company, our care is grounded in the respect that we have for each and every individual. We demonstrate respect to our clients by providing a high-quality service that saves our clients time, money, and headaches. We demonstrate the respect nurses truly deserve by offering them competitive wages and a variety of opportunities to work in the facilities that best match their skills and interests. And, ultimately, these efforts contribute to the respect patients will feel when their facility and nurses demonstrate care for body, mind, and spirit.
