Another myth is that staffing doesn't have competitive pay. Deirdre Is this true? I know Sinead touched on it, and he did touch on it. No, that is not true. So Sinead mentioned that it's based on the midline of prevailing wage. So that is absolutely not true. But you know, it does depend on where you are located. Right. So the cost of living in California, for example, is going to be different the cost of living in Alabama, so your pay rates will probably be aligned with where you are going to be located. But that is absolutely not true. When you are working with AMN healthcare International, particularly. O'Grady Peyton International, not only are you in receipt of highly competitive pay, but also best in class benefits. Think 401k. Think of vision Dental, which is probably foreign language right now, I know that when I came to the United States, I didn't understand that.
But that's where the support comes in as well is that we have, we have teams that are very, very experienced in helping you navigate through that. And when you work with us again, going back to that career matchmaker when you work with your recruiter, we always want to make sure that you've got all of the information upfront so that you can make the best decision for you and your family, we want you to make a decision that is going to work for you long term, right? And when you think about what that looks like Sinead mentioned the top three things that are important to you, so maybe you have family in a location, maybe continuing education is important to you, you want to you want to select a facility that's going to offer you those opportunities, or is it Location, location, location, you know, my own experience, when I first came to the US, I've lived in, I think, for different states.
I've lived in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, California, and now I'm located in Georgia. And so every single state has redeeming qualities. And I would encourage you to, again, to echo what you need said, do your due diligence and make the choice that is going to be a long term successful opportunity for you. And you know, what, if it's not, two years is a short time, you can do whatever you want to and we've had, many of our nurses continue to stay in the location that they are in, but many others choose to continue their career elsewhere. And that's perfectly okay. Whatever is whatever is the best decision for you and your family.
Right, thank you Deirdre, and lots and lots of options as depositions lived in many different states.
