Exhibit 1.1

Cross Country Reports 2nd Quarter Results;
Revenues up 31%; Reaffirms 2002 EPS guidance


BOCA RATON, Fla., August 6, 2002 /PRNewswire/ -- Cross Country, Inc. (Nasdaq:
CCRN - news) today reported revenue of $156.0 million for the three month period
ended June 30, 2002, an increase of 31% over revenue of $118.8 million for the
same period in the prior year. Net income for the second quarter of 2002 was
$8.0 million or $0.24 per diluted share. Net income before discontinued
operations for the second quarter of 2002 was $8.5 million or $0.25 per diluted
share. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and
non-recurring secondary offering costs (EBITDA), a key measure used by
management to evaluate the company's operations, for the three month period
ended June 30, 2002 was $16.3 million, an increase of 23% over the same period
in the prior year. The quarter was favorably impacted primarily by the strong
results generated by the Company's travel nurse staffing businesses and all of
the businesses comprising its Other Human Capital Management Services segment,
coupled with lower corporate expenses, specifically interest and amortization
expenses. 

"We are very pleased with the continued strength of our businesses as
demonstrated by our second quarter 2002 results," said Joseph A. Boshart,
President and Chief Executive Officer. "Demand for our core travel nursing
business continues to benefit from a desire on the part of our hospital clients
to outsource a portion of their labor needs to better meet fluctuating patient
census and the national nursing shortage. We also had strong performances from
each of our Other Human Capital Management Services businesses." 

For the six month period ended June 30, 2002, Cross Country reported revenue of
$310.8 million, an increase of 40% over the same period in the prior year. Net
income and its associated diluted EPS for the six month period ended June 30,
2002 were $15.0 million and $0.44 compared to $2.7 million and $0.12,
respectively, for the six month period June 30, 2001. EBITDA for the six month
period ended June 30, 2002 was $31.9 million compared to $23.7 million for the
same period in the prior year, an increase of 35%. 

Healthcare Staffing 
Cross Country's Healthcare Staffing segment, which comprises travel staffing,
clinical research trials staffing and per diem staffing, generated revenue for
the three month period ended June 30, 2002 of $142.8 million, an increase of 30%
over the same period in the prior year. This growth was driven primarily by
increased average hourly bill rates in all businesses, increased numbers of
field employees in both the travel nursing and allied health staffing as well as
incremental revenue generated by the January 2002 acquisition of NovaPro.
Contribution income, defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation,
amortization and corporate expenses not specifically identified to a reporting
segment, for the three month period ended June 30, 2002 was $19.6 million, an
increase of 21% over the same period in the prior year. This growth was
primarily due to the same factors that drove revenue growth, but partially
offset by an increase in field staff compensation and selling expenses as well
as the increased expenses associated with recruiting nurses overseas.

For the six month period ended June 30, 2002 revenue was $286.4 million, an
increase of 39% over the same period in the prior year and contribution income
was $39.5 million compared to $30.1 million for the six month period ended June
30, 2001. 

Other Human Capital Management Services 
Cross Country's Other Human Capital Management Services segment, which comprises
the education and training, healthcare consulting services, physician search and
resource management services, generated revenue of $13.2 million for the three
month period ended June 30, 2002, an increase of 41% over the same period in the
prior year. This increase was driven primarily by the strong double-digit
results in all businesses within the segment, which includes consulting business
generated by the Jennings Ryan & Kolb, Inc. acquisition in March 2002.
Contribution income for the three month period ended June 30, 2002 was $2.1
million, a 54% increase versus the year ago period. 

For the six month period ended June 30, 2002, revenue was $24.4 million, an
increase of 44% over the same period in the prior year and contribution income
was $3.7 million compared to $2.8 million for the six month period ended June
30, 2001.

(a) Defined as earnings before interest, taxes,  depreciation,  amortization and
corporate expenses not specifically identified to a reporting segment.

(b) Defined as income before interest, income taxes, depreciation,  amortization
and non-recurring  secondary  offering costs.  EBITDA should not be considered a
measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles.
Items  excluded  from EBITDA are  significant  components in  understanding  and
assessing financial  performance.  EBITDA is a key measure used by management to
evaluate our  operations and provide  useful  information  to investors.  EBITDA
should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative  to net income,  cash
flows  generated by  operations,  investing or  financing  activities,  or other
financial statement data presented in the consolidated  financial  statements as
indicators  of  financial  performance  or  liquidity.  Because  EBITDA is not a
measurement   determined  in  accordance  with  generally  accepted   accounting
principles and is thus susceptible to varying calculations,  EBITDA as presented
may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

(c) FTE's  represent  the average  number of contract  staffing  personnel  on a
full-time equivalent basis.
(d) Weeks worked is calculated by  multiplying  the FTE's by the number of weeks
during the respective period.
(e)  Average  healthcare  staffing  revenue  per FTE per week is  calculated  by
dividing the  healthcare  staffing  revenue by the number of weeks worked in the
respective periods.  Healthcare staffing revenue includes revenue from permanent
placement nurses.
