About Ryan
Ryan's Bio

Hey, my name is Ryan, but my friends, co-workers, and nurses know me as RBK (It's a nickname I've had since I was a kid).

I believe that every interaction in life is an opportunity to provide value and positively impact the people you meet. Whether it's your first time seeking a travel assignment, or you are a seasoned veteran of the travel nurse industry my goal is to help you find the right destination, hospital, and experience you are looking for so you, the hero of the patient care story, can positively impact the hospitals and patients in need.

Travel nursing allows flexible scheduling, high wages, and the ability to choose your journey as a nurse. Whether you are looking for big city teaching hospitals and level I trauma centers or small towns and rural communities, it is a great way to broaden your experience and bolster your resume.

I'm originally from Portland, OR but currently live in Ann Arbor, MI where my wife (Ruth) is finishing her residency program as an Anesthesiologist at Michigan Medicine. We will be moving back to the Westcoast in the summer of 2022. Where she will be completing her fellowship at UCLA Medical Center. We are excited to be heading back west to warmer sunnier weather!

As your Travel Partner I am here to support you and guide you along your journey. I'm looking to build meaningful relationships with my clinicians by helping you grow and succeed in your medical career.
I look forward to meeting you, and hope that I can provide an exceptional experience in helping you find your next travel destination.

Thank you for everything you do and for keeping all our loved ones safe and healthy!

Why I love to recruit
I love the fact that I can provide a service to our heroes on the frontline who, in return, are able to care for and positively impact those in need.

When I'm not working I like to
Go Golfing, Skiing, Hiking, Biking, Walk our fur babies Niko & Nala, Float the river, or enjoy socializing with friends while sipping a crisp Midwest IPA brewed with Northwest hops.

About Ryan Bickett-Hickok:

Ryan is exceptional! I’m a seasoned traveler and rarely need much hand holding. However, I found myself in uncharted territory and Ryan walked me through it step by step. I appreciated his continuous dialogue and open communication. He was knowledgeable and went above & beyond. I’m truly grateful for his effort and would highly recommend him.
