We provide referral bonuses for up to 3 assignments for the clinician that you send to us.

        We value hard work and commitment, and our Loyalty program showcases just that. Earn exclusive rewards and perks as you clock hours toward your loyalty milestones.

We like to offer achievable milestones that can happen BEFORE your assignment ends, not just after. We know you have your choice in selecting an agency, so at Cynet, it pays to be loyal.
        Accumulated hours expire after one year of separation/inactivity from your last assignment and reset to zero.
