About Focus Staff

Focus Staff was founded in 2009, on a few simple principles.

Be nimble, add value, and be transparent.

Kyle Rhodes, the CEO and founder had several years of experience as a recruiter both with a start-up firm, and then one of the largest agencies in the healthcare staffing industry.

His goal and mission was to provide the efficiencies and resources of a large agency, but with the touch and feel of a smaller and boutique firm.

Now 12 years in the market, Focus Staff has successfully achieved that balance and executes it every day.

If you need a response, an answer, a solution-Focus Staff won’t get tripped up on bureaucracy or policy.  We stay NIMBLE. We respond to our travelers needs quickly and effectively.

When you work with us, it isn’t a transaction, but an experience.  We aim to ADD VALUE at every angle, and take the burden off of our travelers every chance we can. 

Traveling with Focus Staff isn’t a game of poker.  We tell you what is going on, what we can do to get you a position, and what we can do to help you out financially.  Working with an agency shouldn’t be a ‘used car lot’ standoff.  We ARE TRANSPARENT and create trust.  Traveling with an agency shouldn’t be anything but that.


Our Mission Statement:

To be a formidable organization in the healthcare staffing industry.  Our goals are equally important and we shall not sacrifice any one for the other.

Growth and strength in the market, health of the organization, and a fostering of a unique and human culture.

Life is short.  Work hard.  Add Value.  Be cool. Have fun.  Kick ass.

I have been a traveler for about 4 years. I have worked with other agencies, but I absolutely prefer and try very hard to stay exclusive to Focus Staff. My recruiter Kristie is amazing. Not only does she go the distance, but truly goes the extra mile to get the contracts I want at a fair (and competitive) wage. I like the fact that they are a smaller company, which makes everything more personal. I don’t just feel like a number with them. Any time I am asked to recommend an agency, I always suggest Focus Staff ☺️

If I could give a 10 I WOULD. I have never had a problem with Agency nor Recruiter! Bret has been with me through dark days and sunny!! I trust his word, and the assignments I would be on because he is good. Always helpful and willing to go to bat if needed!! I love Focus.

I started working for Focus staff in September 2019, at first I was apprehensive because I had never done travel nursing but from the moment Taylar, my recruiter recieved my application, she has been there to guide me through the entire process, cheering me on and giving me little tips and advice along the way. She has been an awesome recruiter and I have enjoyed working with her. I would unequivocally recommend Focus staff to any fellow nurses because not only do they have a variety of assignments in different states, they genuinely care about their employees and are always available if I have any questions or concerns.

was new to travel Nursing and was referred by another travel nurse. Starting out, I was a pretty stressed about finding my first job. As far as Focus Staff, I have no complaints. I love getting emails about the latest job opportunities, so I am able stay up to date. The pay and benefits have been better than most companies I was also working with prior to my first contract as well.

The absolute best agency and recruiters you could ask for! They are all available if I have any questions via email, phone, even text. Their compensation packages consistently offer more than other companies. This is the only company I work with for good reason!
