Welcome to Primum Healthcare Solutions
Your trusted healthcare staffing agency in the Inland Northwest.
Primum Healthcare Solutions was founded from a belief that travel nursing is an exciting, challenging, and needed profession within the healthcare industry. This company was created because two traveling nurses, a husband and wife team, wanted to create an environment where the agency was the advocate for the nurses and the liaison between them and the facilities they are placed.
We work closely with both our nursing professionals and our facilities to fulfill staffing needs with experienced nursing professionals throughout the Northwest.

Brandon Wilcox, a registered nurse who has been in the travel nursing field since 2008, seeing firsthand the shortcomings of the travel nursing industry. He realizes and appreciates both the opportunities and difficulties associated with travel nursing. Brandon studied at the College of Southern Idaho, his nursing career began as a CNA/NAC in the year 2006. Developing his healthcare career and his love for nursing. He obtained his LPN certificate in the year 2013 and quickly returned and graduated with his Registered Nursing degree in 2015, before embarking on a quest to create a unique and thriving nurse staffing agency.
While holding positions as a traveling nurse, Brandon identified a critical area in the current industry that is lacking. A disconnect between employer and valued employee. Through his experience, he realized it wasn’t necessarily the fault of himself or the facilities. It came down to a lack of involvement from the nurse staffing agencies he worked for. They didn’t always onboard properly or help to make the proper introductions when a placement began, which sometimes made him feel like a number rather than a valuable member of a team. Brandon believes there is a better way. Striving for a balance between home life and work fulfillment, we place value on the individual and work hard to develop personal relationships with our nursing staff and facilities.
“It’s about maintaining relationships and being invested in the success of our nurses and clients.”
–Brandon Troy Wilcox
