About our Association

What is NATHO?

The National Association of Travel Healthcare Organizations (NATHO) is a non-profit association of travel healthcare organizations, founded in 2008 to promote ethical business practices in the travel healthcare industry, setting the gold standard for conduct that is aligned among member agencies on behalf of travel healthcare candidates and clients.

"The collective goal of our membership is to create a clear understanding of Travel Healthcare throughout the healthcare industry and to develop a program that ensures a quality service experience for all those involved including Travel Healthcare professionals, healthcare organizations, and patients."
Don DeCamp
Chief Operating Officer at CHG Healthcare and joint founding member of NATHO

For the first time in history, business leaders in the Travel Healthcare industry have come together to form the National Association of Travel Healthcare Organizations (NATHO).  As a professional association, NATHO was created to provide healthcare organizations with high standards of service and to represent the industry as a whole.


  • To educate the healthcare industry on the benefits of Travel Healthcare staffing.
  • To establish a set of service standards among Travel Healthcare companies.
  • To share resources among member organizations.
  • Offer a formal dispute resolution process through an arbitration committee.
  • Aid all members in cultivating market growth.

NATHO members are held to a strict code of ethics that was developed specifically for the Travel Healthcare industry. It is important for Travel Healthcare professionals and healthcare facilities to keep this in mind when selecting a company to provide services.

NATHO Mission: The National Association of Travel Healthcare Organizations is dedicated to promoting ethical guidelines in the industry by providing a forum and resources to travel healthcare organizations through common standards of practice, committee and partnership involvement, government and regulatory advocacy and compliance, and educational programming.

NATHO Partnerships

 The DAISY Foundation expresses gratitude to nurses with programs that recognize them for the extraordinary skillful, compassionate care they provide patients and families.

The DAISY Foundation, created to express gratitude by a family that experienced extraordinary nursing, is the leader in meaningful recognition of nurses. Everyone who is involved with DAISY, whether they are presenting the Awards, choosing Honorees, or coordinating the program, is an extension of this family and their expression of this gratitude.

The DAISY Foundation's expression of gratitude will help nurses always remember the unforgettable impact their care has on patients and families, inspiring nurses to provide extraordinary care not only with their brains but also with their hearts.
