Hear what Travel Nurses have to say

“Guarantees for the nurses. Contracts can be cancelled at anytime with no penalties to facilities. However if the nurse cancels a contract they're at risk for fines as well as deemed DNR.”

Mike T.
Travel Nurse (Miami)

“I don’t feel supported by agencies. I try to put my best foot forward so I don’t get canceled or blacklisted. The contract cancellation is a quick process. Hospitals won't even investigate and agencies won't fight back for travel nurses.”

Dora R.
Travel Nurse (NYC)
"A bigger issue is that most travel nurses don't only use one agency so they find themselves doing things over and over. I feel sometimes the time and money spent with all certs, trainings, moving causes me to breakeven with travel nursing. Then few weeks into your contract, you are cancelled. Hurts."
Samantha L.
Travel Nurse (Chicago)
"Our contracts don't give us any protections, but give hospitals money if we have to cancel. It's so unilateral. Fees for cancelling should be standard, as should ratio protections and floating expectations. There should be punishments baked in for the "bait and switch" contracts!"
Oscar M.
Travel Nurse (LA)
"Hospitals are getting worse about canceling travelers. They don’t realize or don’t care how much money we put into traveling. We have to pay $$$ for housing close to the hospital and often sign 3 month leases so if we get canceled early we’re often still responsible for paying the remaining time regardless if we’re there or not. The fact that we had to buy special scrubs for that hospital, pay for gas hotels, etc to travel to said hospital. And all the energy it takes to apply and do onboarding for every assignment. It is a real fear and it’s not fair."
Nancy S.
Travel Nurse (Austin)

About us

Bedouin is the solution to a problem that has been plaguing the travel nursing industry for years – canceled contracts. In 2019, Osama decided to work as a travel nurse in Wisconsin. After signing his first contract, he began his onboarding process. To his surprise two days before his start date week, his recruiter notified him that the contract was canceled. Upset with this, he voiced his frustration on travel nurse forums, and to his surprise, this was a norm for travel nurses. Osama could not accept this reality. In 2021, he partnered with Mahmood, an experienced Data Scientist, and founded Bedouin, backed by University of California Berkeley, with the mission of providing travel nurses with coverage to give them the peace of mind they deserve.
