View Full Version : Interesting read RE: VMS & MSP

06-12-2013, 01:00 PM
I recently read an article on Staffing Industry Analysts (which I was surprised to see since they support VMS) on VMS/MSP from the Agency perspective. I thought it was a great article on the negative impact that VMS/MSP has on our industry but felt it only scratched the surface. Yes, staffing companies are greatly affected by VMS/MSP but the people who get it worst is us nurses!

I wish agencies would take a stand and moreso, I wish we would take a stand against these facilities that choose to use VMS/MSP. I try my best to avoid hospitals that use them... in fact, I refuse to work at any HCA hospital simply because I have no interest in having any affiliation with All About Staffing.

These companies depress rates and who takes the biggest hit, we do! We don't get the pay we deserve, they require us to jump through ridiculous hurdles from a credentialling standpoint, and so much more!

I hope you take a moment out of your day to read this article.
