Axis Medical Staffing

Agency Description:

From our office in lower Queen Anne we have a 180-degree view of Elliot Bay and an unbeatable office culture. It’s from this rad view that we specialize in per diem staffing, contract assignments/travel nursing, contract-to-hire and direct hire placements to nursing and allied healthcare professionals.

Ryan Skjonsberg and Adam McKinnon started Axis Medical Staffing back in 2004 in an executive suite that measured just 10×10. The two entrepreneurs saw the opportunity to run a company differently than other agencies at the time. When needs came in, Adam and Ryan would run to the fax (yes, the facsimile) and send nurses’ availability to the hospitals. We were putting in the legwork other agencies weren’t. They visited facilities to ensure they always had what they needed (including the occasional snack).

The first shift booked and worked was on Christmas day, 2004. Today, we’re one of the fastest growing companies in Washington and we’ll put in that same legwork — and more — no matter what day it is.


I am enjoying the support and the wide variety of contracts which I am getting in this agency. There are times when I was having major issues in the contracts but there was proper support from staff. I would like to continue for other few years in this agency.

I have loved working with this company. The coordinator who is managing my pay and scheduling is very nice. They are always prompt in the deliveries and reviews. If you are looking for the contract job, are not looking for the benefits, and are looking for travel then this is the best company to work.

I have recently completed my three assignments with Axis medical staffing and it is quite easy to work with them. They have recruiters at the local place where they send us for contracts and so it makes it easy to communicate and get support. The paychecks are always on time and accurate but they do not reimburse for nursing licensure.
