Ready Now Staffing

About Us

Initially, Ready Now provided a broad spectrum of healthcare professionals, primarily in the hospital setting.  Ready Now Staffing was established in 2004 with a robust focus on complementary hospital staffing. Gradually, the focus shifted to home infusion therapy and our nurses became well known for their skill and caring in the field of infusion services.  Ready Now Staffing is now fully dedicated to providing highly qualified nurses for the infusion of specialty medications, including IVIG and many other products.

Admin Team

Nathaniel Joy RN

President/CEO

Nate is a transplant from the East Coast, and more specifically from the beautiful, but sparsely populated state of Maine. Not one to stand still for long, Nate ended up in Northern California for high school, then Tennessee for University, where he earned his BSN degree. After gaining a bit of nursing experience in Tennessee, Nate took on several travel nursing assignments which led him to the Southern Coast of California where he has established ties (and a Staffing Company). When not infusing, or doing paperwork, Nate loves anything beach related including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming.

In 2005 Nate had the opportunity to administer his first non-hospital based IVIG infusion and knew immediately it was a match. In addition to the challenge of finding those “difficult” veins he absolutely loves the opportunity to provide attentive nursing care over an extended period of time, often months to years. Many patients report dramatic stabilization/improvement with treatment and that brings a lot of joy to the team. Nate realizes his limits and holds an intense gratitude for all the incredible staff and nurses who have chosen to align with Ready NOW Staffing to provide impeccable nursing care. Some nurses have remained faithful employees for over 10 years now!
