To Our Fellow Shareholders:
We are pleased to invite you to attend our 2018 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”) of AMN Healthcare Services, Inc. at our corporate office located at 8840 Cypress Waters Boulevard, Suite 300, Dallas, Texas 75019 on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, at 8:30 a.m. Central Time. The accompanying formal notice of the Annual Meeting and proxy statement set forth the details regarding admission to the Annual Meeting and the business to be conducted.
Our annual meetings provide us with yet another opportunity to meet with our shareholders and discuss our strategy, corporate governance, and other related matters. We place high importance on maintaining an ongoing dialogue with our shareholders, and do not limit our conversations to the Annual Meeting. In addition to the Annual Meeting and our discussions at investor conferences, we also engage our shareholders through a formal outreach program in which we invite our shareholders to discuss our culture, corporate governance, executive compensation, corporate social responsibility program, and any other matters that may be of interest to them. We found these interactions to be very beneficial and discuss this in more detail in our proxy statement. We truly value communicating with and receiving feedback from our shareholders and look forward to continuing these conversations in 2018.
In connection with the Annual Meeting, we encourage you to review our Annual Report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. The formal notice of the Annual Meeting has been sent to you, along with the proxy statement and proxy card, unless you have elected to receive materials electronically. It is important that your shares be represented and voted, regardless of the size of your holdings. Accordingly, whether or not you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we encourage you to access the proxy materials and vote online in accordance with the “Notice and Access” letter you will receive so that your shares will be represented at the Annual Meeting. In the alternative, you may also complete, sign, date, and return the proxy card if you wish to receive a full set of proxy materials by mail. Finally, please keep in mind, the proxy is revocable at any time before it is voted and will not affect your right to vote in person if you decide to attend the Annual Meeting.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Company, we want to thank you for your ongoing support of and continued interest in AMN Healthcare, and we hope to see you at the Annual Meeting.

The Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”) of AMN Healthcare Services, Inc. will be held at our office located at 8840 Cypress Waters Boulevard, Suite 300, Dallas, Texas 75019 on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, at 8:30 a.m. Central Time, or at any subsequent time that may be necessary by any adjournment or postponement of the Annual Meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to:
- elect eight directors nominated by our Board of Directors to hold office until our next annual meeting or until their successors are duly elected and qualified,
- approve, by non-binding advisory vote, the compensation of our named executive officers,
- ratify the appointment of KPMG LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018, and
- transact such other business, including consideration of a shareholder proposal if properly presented, as may properly come before the Annual Meeting or any adjournment or postponement of the Annual Meeting.
The Board of Directors has fixed the close of business on February 21, 2018 as the record date for determining the shareholders of the Company entitled to notice of and to vote at the Annual Meeting or any adjournment thereof. Representation of at least a majority of the voting power represented by all outstanding shares is required to constitute a quorum at the Annual Meeting. Accordingly, it is important that your shares be represented at the Annual Meeting.
We will be using the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Notice and Access model (“Notice and Access”), which allows us to make proxy materials available electronically, as the primary means of furnishing proxy materials. We believe Notice and Access provides shareholders with a convenient method to access our proxy materials and vote. It also allows us to conserve natural resources in alignment with our Corporate Social Responsibility Program and reduces the costs associated with printing and distributing our proxy materials. On or about March 8, 2018, we will commence mailing by sending a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials to our shareholders containing instructions on how to access our proxy statement and 2017 Annual Report online and how to cast your vote. The Notice also contains instructions on how to receive a paper copy of the proxy statement and 2017 Annual Report.
March 8, 2018:
By Order of the Board of Directors,
