Reservist FAQs

Need an answer quickly? These are our most-asked questions:


Emergency deployments will typically require our Reservists to onboard and arrive at their assigned location within 24 hours after being rostered. Depending on the circumstances, Krucial may/may not publicly announce when emergency deployment positions are available. Reservists interested in emergency deployments should always maintain a profile in Krucial’s database system with current information, certifications, etc.  

Travel contracts follow a more traditional hiring process, but offer longer assignments (frequently 8 or 13 weeks). 

Per Diem assignments are based on shifts (vs. contracts). Individuals interested in Per Diem assignments must be pre-approved and, once approved, can sign-up to secure shifts on an ongoing basis. Currently, Krucial offers RN and LPN/LVN Per Diem shifts in Kansas and Missouri only. 

Direct hire positions offer a permanent placement opportunity in your desired city and state. The duration of the hiring process may vary based on assignment type, position, and need.

We ask for you to have an active, unencumbered U.S. license, a year of experience, a clean background check, an updated BLS (and ACLS for ER RN and ICU RNs) and be able to travel immediately. Many states accept compact licenses, please refer to each state’s regulations. Eligibility requirements may vary depending on the type of position. For questions about a specific position, reach out to us at 913-318-3448 for further assistance.
