Nate Shanklin - Founder


I'm Nate Shanklin and I was a Recruiter for Travel Nurses for over 3 years.  I found there was an extreme lack of knowledge and transparency in the industry, so I took it upon myself to start Travel Nursing Direct.  I'm a 5-star rated recruiter, I've achieved many different awards and accolades during my time as a recruiter and now my aim is to help all Travel Nurses gain an understanding of what to expect and how to maximize their career.
