Create your own destiny with Cross Country Nurses.

Cross Country Nurses, a division of Cross Country Healthcare, was co-founded in 1986 by CEO Kevin Clark. At the time, Kevin and his partners transformed the nascent travel nurse industry by introducing innovative marketing initiatives, cutting-edge technology and a laser focus on delivering clinical excellence for healthcare professionals. With an entrepreneurial spirit leading the way and innovation driving the solutions delivered, Cross Country changed the industry and what healthcare professionals came to expect. This drive and commitment are what, for more than 30 years now, have made Cross Country the trusted partner to thousands of nurses, allied health professionals and advanced practice and physician professionals as well as leading acute and post care health systems and hospitals across the nation. Still driven by innovation and passion, Cross Country Nurses continues to enhance the travel nurse experience and remains committed to building a strong connection with their nurses to help them achieve their personal and professional goals.
