About  Nurses PRN

Nurses PRN is an experienced healthcare staffing agency that offers a variety of work options locally and nationally, including contracts, per diem and permanent placement.

Our story starts with a 21 year old CNA named Pete Hietpas. Pete was diligently working in the Fox Valley Wisconsin area with a variety of staffing agencies, but something was missing. He loved caring for his patients, but felt that the staffing agencies were exchanging compassion for competitiveness. Why can’t there be a balanced approach built on strong relationships with the nurses and clients? He was determined to change that. As a result, he started Nurses PRN in 1995 to be a model for the healthcare staffing business – being competitive in the marketplace, yet still maintaining a compassionate heart.

Today that model is thriving. Pete, as president, guides Nurses PRN in building authentic relationships with both our nurses and clients – driven by the simple idea that better nursing care leads to better patient care – all supported by a dedicated internal staff.

Our company culture is strongly supported by Christian values and activities to remind us that our success provides us the opportunity to serve and give back to our communities. This is the spirit of caregiving. This is Nurses PRN.
