Our Vision

To offer our greater community a range of quality healthcare services that are committed to the need of those we serve.

Our Mission

It is our priority to provide the highest quality of nursing services while being responsive to the changing markets in healthcare. Ensuring exceptional customer service by means of open and effective communication with our staff and clients is what allows us to excel in the delivery of our care. Through trainings that surpass the minimum state health care requirements, we invest in our employees so that they contribute to the success of our clients.

What We Believe:
A Tradition of Caring

We believe in the value of continuing education through hands on training and support to our field staff to ensure we are providing skilled nurses to help maintain safe staffing levels at our partnering client facilities.

To this day, our commitment to residents and patients is reflected in the quality of services we provide.

Through the years, our good reputation has enabled us to grow and expand in scope. The Nurse Connection Staffing offers staffing services throughout the Capital Region, Central NY and Western NY with continued plans to grow.

Meeting the needs of the elderly, ill and children with special needs requires patience, kindness and above all the willingness to care. These are the qualities you will find in everyone at The Nurse Connection Staffing. The goals of our company continue to be the same as when the company was originally founded – to meet the supplemental staffing needs of our clients and to provide a work relationship that respects the needs and concerns of all professional health care providers. We offer the personal touch often missing from national companies.
