Erin A -2017 Recruiter of the Year
Sr. Career Consultant- Team Lead
“If Plan A didn't work, the alphabet has 25 more letters! Stay cool.”
A LITTLE ABOUT MEI am a strong believer that life is meant to be lived! The world is a big place and it is meant to be explored. I consider myself adventurous and never turn down a challenge. I love meeting new people and discovering new places. I am a tom boy that loves to both watch and play sports but at the same time have a girlie girl side.
I am born and raised in Southern California and currently live in San Diego. I did get away for 2 years and moved to Denver Colorado. I loved being close to the Rockies but missed the ocean and had to move back. I am now engaged and getting married in August 2018. I have two adorable French bulldogs named Lola and Buddy, they are my fur babies. I never thought I was a dog person until I got Lola and now I find myself treating them both like babies... it’s true I am that person.
Much like the nurses I work with, I have a passion for travel. I have explored so many wonderful places including; Italy, Ireland, England, Costa Rico, Mexico, Virgin Islands, and various locations throughout the US. I think it’s extremely important to get out there and live life. It’s exciting to see how others live and discovery new cultures. I am always looking for suggestions so send them my way.
I love what I do and am fortunate to work for such an amazing company. I have the opportunity to meet new friends every single day and call it work. I am excited to learn more about you!!
"Erin has been awesome. I was traveling with another company and she always kept in touch. She never called while I was sleeping, and she was respectful to give me space until I was ready to travel again. Since I started traveling she has checked on me and made sure it's been very easy to get my time card in without a hassle. She has been there every step of the way. She is the reason I chose medical solutions as the company to travel with."- Current Traveler
“Erin Altman is my most wonderful recruiter! Totally love her!! Thanks Erin!- Rachel- Previous Traveler
My name is Tahny and I currently work as a travel nurse for Medical Solutions. I would like to take a few minutes and bore you with a little background story and hope that you will stick around to hear the life-changing ending.
I will begin by saying that being a nurse is one of the most difficult occupations I have ever taken on and I have taken on plenty of jobs throughout my 16 years in the workforce. So difficult are the inner workings of nursing that after just two and a half years in the field I was ready to hangup the proverbial cap and call it quits. Fortunately, I found travel nursing which offered the reprieval that I needed - the love of traveling combined with a pretty nice pay raise. However, my initial traveling experience left a lot to be desired.
I have worked with two different travel agencies and dealt with even more and every single one seem to possess the same shortcoming; poor service. The travel nursing conglomerate I once worked with used to give me the run-around whenever I had an issue with payroll, or even a simple question about a potential contract. I was left pressing ‘4’ and ‘0’ on my keypad for several hours and should I be lucky to get a human voice, no one seems to know what is going on. Needless to say, I was looking to find a more suitable business arrangement. That was around the time I received a referral from a fellow travel nurse about Erin Altman.
At first I was really skeptical about the referral and thought to myself, “What can they possibly do different that can make me change my mind about travel nursing agencies”? Erin Altman made me change my mind about travel nursing agency. Since the very first time I spoke to Erin she made me feel confident that the partnership we are embarking on is not one that I am left to do alone. Every question was always answered promptly, every promise of action was made, and the most valued action of all - a follow-up call was made every week reminding me, “Hey, here I am. You’re not alone”. I’m sure I missed many more wonderful things that Erin does but the aforementioned are the ones that stand out the most.
I am almost positive that Erin has many more travelers that she works with and I am not the only account she has but she has definitely made me feel like I am the only one. Erin is a hard worker - she has worked hard for me and for that I am extremely grateful and loyal to. Erin has made my traveling experience, thus far, a headache-free and an enjoyable one. I hope to have many more through this partnership.
Thank you for your time.
I wanted to personally email you and let you know how amazing Erin Altman has been to me. And personally thank your company for the way you have shown you care about your nurses! I don't want to get into the ugly details but I was with one company for the last 2.5 years and I was treated so horribly.
Long story short, Erin has been calling me every few months for the last two years. There were either no assignments I could do or I was in a contract already. She was persistent and told me if we could ever work together, it would be worth it! Haha! She was correct! Finally, it worked out and I'm on my first assignment with medical solutions. I can't tell you how wonderful she's been calling to check on me or work on issues. She is a great recruiter!
Also thank you medical solutions for all you've done! I was never recognized for anything with my previous company including my birthday or nurses day! But I've been with your company for 6 weeks and I've already received a messenger bag with cards and a thank you note and a foot massager!
To me, it a a big deal that your company pushes making sure we are happy and taken care of. Especially after the previous company treated me so bad. I only stayed because they had assignments.
Thank you Medical Solutions and Erin Altman!

I just wanted you to know that last year when I first started traveling I was very discouraged due to the company I was working with. When I was referred to you from Denny Ferris I was hesitant as I was already let down by the other agency. Right away you were very personable listened to my needs and wants and found the job I was looking for. Not only have you met but you have exceeded my expectations from that point forward. If it wasn't for you I would have given up on traveling altogether. You are an amazing recruiter, an awesome person and someone that I am glad to call a friend. I appreciate and look forward to the weekly calls. Every time I meet a new traveler I tell them about you and how amazing you are and they should switch... I can't make them call but I can remind them they are missing out. I really want to say thank you for everything you have done and continue to do I couldn't ask for a better person then you to work with!!!!! I wish there was a way to nominate you to be recognized by all travel companies as to how an individual should interact with nurses along with representing their company!!!
You are such a delight to work with. I look forward to many more assignments with you leading the way. You help me with my struggles, you keep my head on straight, and you are a rock star. Anytime I have any questions or have a problem at my assignment you have always had the right answers and the best solutions. I wished everyone would know how wonderful you are!
Thank you so much Erin!
Erin is the most amazing recruiter ever!! She has found me the most amazing positions and makes sure that I am paid and treated fairly. She is always there for me and answers her calls, texts and emails almost instantly. Even when she is dealing with the horrible weather in California or personal illness, she is always bright and cheerful and willing to go the extra mile for her nurses. She is a joy to work with- Jackie- Current Traveler
I’m a new traveler on my first assignment and Erin has been so helpful! Always cheerful, always encouraging, promptly returns phone calls and after our conversation I’ve always felt like my questions were answered. She has continued to contact me every week so I never feel alone. I’m so thankful for what she does.- Teresa- Current Traveler
Erin Altman has been my amazing recruiter almost 2 years. She immediately returns my phone calls and keeps me updated on everything that I need to do and every place that I need to be!
Because Erin has two Fench Bulldogs, she helps takecare of my two Shi Tzus and sends sweet presents to them!!
Erin Altman is the best recruiter who I have ever had!!!!
Honestly the best recruiter I’ve had hands down! She goes above and beyond to make sure your taken care of and to answer any questions you have about anything . She’s quick to respond even if she’s on vacation! I’ve worked with her for over a year now and she’s pretty amazing at what she does !- Heather- Current Traveler
Erin defied the odds and believed in me when I was going to give up travel and accept a permanent position. With no travel experience and only a couple years RN she submitted me everywhere and I was offered a job at the best option possible for my current circumstances. They called the day I was going to accept a permanent position and Erin talked me through it. I am SO happy that she did. Best decision I could have made thanks to her!- Chelsea- Current Traveler
Erin restored my faith in recruiters. I was being used and abused by lazy agents and bad companies, until Erin was recommended by a friend. Best decision I could have made for my travel nurse career.- Jennifer- Current Traveler
I was a newbie. Uncertain and afraid. Erin explained the basics of travel 101 and made me feel as if it was making the right choice. I work hard and it paid off. Thank you for your support. Erin is very responsive to all requests, even from home! She is very knowledgeable and if she did not know she got me to someone who did. Communication is her strong suit and I appreciate it so much. I wish I could clone more people like her. Thank you for all you do!- Dina- Previous Traveler
I strongly believe that Erin is an over achiever and goes above and beyond. Erin is always there when you need her no matter what. If Erin is away she makes sure there is someone there to cover her and notify you of who is there to answer any questions you may have and to support you in anyway possible.- Margarita- Current Traveler
Erin is an amazing recruiter! I did three assignments, with extensions, with MS. She is very personable and genuinely cares about you and has Your interest at heart. She is prompt at responding to any issues, which I didn’t have much of, and always on top of things. She takes her time when on the phone with me and I have never felt rushed. I am currently not working with Erin, but I am ready to get back to Med Solutions as soon as possible! Go Erin!!- Llan- Previous Traveler
I cannot say enough about Erin. She has been phenomenal and continues to go above and beyond through every phase of my journey with Medical Solutions. I could not have chosen a better company or recruiter than who I have been blessed to work with. Erin is #1. Love her.- Lisa- Current Traveler
