A thank you to our reservists.

Since April of 2020, over 40,000 Krucial frontline workers traveled hundreds of thousands of miles to help a nation in crisis. In 2020 and 2021, we sent a videographer around the country to capture some of those moments.

Reservist FAQs

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


Assignments typically range from 8 to 13 weeks. However, assignments can vary by location and position requested. And in some cases, the hospital/facility may offer the option for you to extend the assignment.

We update our list of available jobs on a regular basis, starting with post notifications on our social media pages. There’s also the option to opt in on job notifications once you create a Reservist profile. You may also choose to visit our website to search for open positions.

Yes! Many positions listed have a local option, so you can still enjoy the benefits of travel nursing without leaving your family, friends, and the comfort of your own home.

Emergency deployments will typically require our Reservists to onboard and arrive at their assigned location within 24 hours after being rostered. Travel contracts follow a more traditional hiring process but offer longer assignments. 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 US 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 our main line at 888-222-6359 for further assistance.

You will receive a weekly paycheck.

No. Krucial Rapid Response will NEVER ask for or accept money in exchange for being given preference in the rostering process or a guaranteed assignment. Any messages or solicitations indicating otherwise are fraudulent.

In certain circumstances, many staff may be staying at the same location, working the same or similar assignments. In this case, a Krucial Onsite Representative may be assigned to that location as your first point of contact, and they will reach out to you upon arrival.
