About Our Medical Staffing Agency


We are Pulse Medical Staffing. Our staff and supplemental staffing solutions are just a heartbeat away. At Pulse Medical Staffing we are a premier medical staffing agency that provides much-needed temporary supplemental staff to all area healthcare services to include the following: hospitals, clinics, physician offices, surgery centers, radiology centers, and rehabilitation centers.

 Headquartered in Columbia, Missouri, Pulse Medical Staffing serves the Midwest's premier healthcare facilities both big and small. Our company was founded in 2010 by Dan Latham who was previously a traveling agency nurse. Dan recognized the need for a medical staffing agency that is truly for its clients and its employees. Seeing the industry from the inside out, he molded his company on that vision, improving upon the business models he previously encountered as an agency nurse. Very few medical staffing companies are managed by a medical professional. Dan is the exception to the rule, both a nurse himself and an entrepreneur.

Meet our CEO, Dan Latham


Dan Latham was raised in Bloomfield, Missouri. After high school, he considered an education and career in commercial art, but his family's decision to move out of state convinced him to rethink his career options. After stints in the operating room and as an EMT, he chose nursing as a profession. Once Dan began working in the field, he found that he had a talent for complex care management. He never failed to make his patients the focus of that care. One of his most challenging positions was as a coordinator for a tissue recovery service; with his exceptional multitasking skills, he could balance patient cases, donor and recipient locations, and multiple transplant teams simultaneously. He served a wide spectrum of clients in his post, ranging from small rural hospitals to Level I trauma centers.


"Dear Dan,

I just wanted to contact you and let you know what an outstanding professional Libby is. Libby was the LPN taking care of my mother at a local Hospital on Sunday April 26th. Libby truly cares about her patients and her professionalism is top notch. She works to take care of patients and families not just to earn a paycheck. She shares her experience and knowledge to put the patient and family at ease. I wish we had a Libby every day to help us while mom recovers. Thanks so much Libby."
