Apply with Medfirst
MedFirst hires a wide range of healthcare personnel, but we specialize in RNs, LPNs and CNAs.
Our application is available through this website. Once you start the application process you will need to establish an individual user name and password to log in to our system. This will allow you to complete the application materials at your own pace, when it is convenient for you. Please call 888.421.0395 if you have questions, or wish to speak with one of our Recruiters.
MedFirst requires that you hold a current license or certification for the state in which you want to work (or have a compact license), and prefer that you have at least one year of recent experience in your clinical specialty. We also require:
- Current CPR (American Heart Association or Red Cross preferred)
- Current certifications required by your specialty (ACLS, PALS, TNCC, etc.)
- Current PPD (within the last twelve  months)
- At least two (2) professional references
After you complete the online application, a MedFirst Recruiter will contact you. We want to learn more about you. For example, we want to know your skills and experience, availability, shift preferences, and desired locations.
During the application process, you will be asked to submit to a drug screen. We will complete various background checks and will run your name through the federal E-Verify system to determine your eligibility to work in the United States. We will also assign skills checklists and competency tests for you to complete.
Once you complete the application process, your Recruiter will present you with available job opportunities.
Assignments and Compensation
MedFirst provides highly attractive compensation. Your compensation will depend on your specialty, work history, and assignment choice. Please speak with your Recruiter directly for more information regarding pay rates.
MedFirst pays weekly, every Thursday, based on the time slips from the previous week that you submit to us. Our pay week runs Sunday through Saturday. Time slips must be signed by an authorized supervisor from the facility and must be turned in by Monday at noon to be included in that week’s payroll. Checks can be mailed to you or direct deposited at no charge into your bank account. Also, if you are in Upstate South Carolina, you may pick up your check in our office.
Call 888.421.0395 immediately if you feel there is a discrepancy in your pay. We work hard to provide you with the right pay, on time, every time. We will make every attempt to correct any discrepancies immediately and to your satisfaction.
Yes. MedFirst currently employs our staff as W-2 employees. We are responsible for withholding all applicable state and federal taxes from your paycheck.
A member of our staffing team, either your Recruiter or the Staffing Coordinator, will contact you frequently to monitor the progress of your current assignment or to discuss potential new jobs or available shifts. Typically, our contract employees have the option of extending their current assignment, or rolling into a new one. If you work per diem shifts, the Staffing Coordinator will act as a liaison between you and the facility to arrange your schedule.
MedFirst also has a dedicated Credentials Coordinator as part of our staffing team. You will hear from our Credentials Coordinator when one or more of your credentials are expiring, usually 60 days from the expiration date. We want to give you plenty of time to update your credential(s). Our goal is for you to maintain your work schedule uninterrupted by expired credentials.
Our staffing team will assist you in determining the appropriate credentials for each assignment.
