Advanced Practice Solutions (APS) is a healthcare employment agency founded in early 1998 by nurse practitioners who experienced difficulty finding flexible work environments in which to practice their new skills. Frustrated by lack of options, they formed their own group and worked to obtain contracts first throughout the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas (Twin Cities) of Minnesota (MN). Today, Advanced Practice Solutions is a nationwide healthcare employment agency offering medical recruitment services and medical jobs for nurse practitioners, advanced practice nurses, and physician assistants in all 50 states.
As medical practices continue to discover how midlevel providers can see approximately 80% of the patients typically treated by physicians, our company continues to grow and expand our database of both healthcare job seekers and employers. Research has clearly demonstrated there is no difference in health outcomes for patients seen by advanced practice clinicians, and their salaries are traditionally 1/3 to 1/2 of the physician rate.
One of the nation’s first healthcare employment agencies to focus on nurse practitioners and physician assistants, we have developed a one of the largest, state-of-the-art databases in the industry. Our extensive network of contacts makes finding the right fit easy for both employers and health care job seekers.
A midsize healthcare staffing agency, APS places approximately 75 candidates a year of all medical specialties in permanent positions. We are a client driven company and have high standards for providing exceptional customer service with a “small town” feel.
APS offers both contingency and retained searches. The majority of our searches are contingency based (meaning there is no fee to our clients unless the perfect candidate is found). Retained searches are offered for high demand medical specialties.
APS provides locum tenens (temporary) nurse practitioners and other advanced practice nurses as well as physician assistants for assignments of at least 4 weeks in duration. We also place nurses and nurse practitioners for health care assessments.
