In 1991, Congress declared that the first Tuesday in June as National Healthcare Recruiter Recognition Day.
PassportUSA applauds the extraordinary service and commitment of not only our International Healthcare Recruitment Team but also our many support teams who make each step of the process for our candidates as smooth as possible. Each day our PassportUSA support teams work tirelessly to assist international healthcare professionals who dream of living and working in the USA.
When You Team Up With PassportUSA, You Partner With the Best
No fewer than five dedicated teams work in tandem to ensure that your arrival and subsequent stay in America are successful and smooth. Those include:
This group assesses a candidate’s fit and explains the program’s benefits, responsibilities, and general processes — all while ensuring that you and your family members understand all parts of the contract.
International Program Associate
After your contract is signed, an International Program Associate (IPA) will work with you every step of the way until visa filing. The IPAs are responsible for collecting documentation and making sure you are on track to pass any necessary exams, such as NCLEX or IELTS. They coordinate test-prep resources and any coaching in conjunction with an internal certified IELTS instructor.
International Deployment Associate
Your International Deployment Associate (IDA) is a large part of the full cycle recruitment process at Passport USA. They are responsible for collecting applicable healthcare professional documents, filing state licensure and Visa applications. They also coordinate with the Account Managers to schedule client interviews and collaborate with the Travel & Housing Team to prepare the candidate for their transition to the USA.
Quality Improvement Team
Before you arrive in America, our Quality Improvement Team administers a curriculum to get global healthcare professionals ready for U.S. placement and practice. This team makes your transition as easy as possible and represents a valuable asset for training and guidance throughout your whole assignment. This group is led by a team of experienced nurse leaders with more than 50 years of combined U.S. healthcare experience at award-winning healthcare organizations.
Arrival, Travel, and Housing Specialists
This important team makes sure all travel arrangements, temporary housing, and U.S. transportation is set up flawlessly prior to your arrival in America. Specialists meet every candidate at the airport and spend time helping you get your U.S. household established, not to mention assistance in setting up bank accounts, driving lessons as needed, introductions to your worksite and teammates, and much more!
International Employee Supervisors
Affectionately referred to as “life coaches” by many of our working healthcare professionals, these folks make sure that all of the day-to-day items such as timesheets and paid-time-off requests are maintained. International employee supervisors are available every hour of every day to help you with your adaptation to the U.S., provide tips on budgeting, secure employment for spouses, and even offer dating advice — not at all typical in our line of work and further proof that PassportUSA is the industry leader when it comes to caring about your success in the USA.
It truly takes a village.
We’ve left no stone unturned in developing top-notch teams to assist you. PassportUSA staffs an internal team of attorneys, travel and housing coordinators, and credentialing experts who handle all licensing, immigration, and relocation logistics. We have this down to a science.
