What Our Nurses Love About Preferred Care
Having worked in the hospital for some years, I found myself becoming burntout. Culture and staff appreciation are a big thing for me, which I was not getting. A friend recommended preferred care, not having done agency before I wasn’t sure what to expect & I have to say it was the best move for me. I don’t think I have ever felt so supported in any of my previous jobs as I have for this agency ! Preferred Care truly appreciates their staff, you’re not a payroll number, you’re a person! A valued team member, the positive work culture filters down from the top. It’s an awesome organisation to work for.

I have worked with Preferred Care for the last 8 months and they have been great. I have never worked for a more supportive company, who really cares about my well being and me as a person. I would recommend Preferred Care to anyone wanting to work with people who make you feel validated and cared for
