Where do you have contracts?
We staff nationwide! From Alaska to Maine in hospitals, home health, outpatient clinics, skilled nursing facilities, and long-term care hospitals.
How long are contracts?
Most contracts are 3 months in lengths; 13 weeks tends to be the standard but there is potential for shorter or longer contracts depending on the client’s need.
What if I only have one license but want to go out of state?
You will need to apply by endorsement for any state’s license that you do not have. Most facilities will require that state’s license to be active prior to the submittal. Your recruiter will be able to help you with this process should you have any questions.
Can I bring my pet?
Absolutely! You may have to pay an extra fee depending on your housing but that’s a small price to pay to have your fur-child with you on assignment.
What do I do if the facility sends me home early?
If the facility is sending you home early please make sure to specify on your timesheet and try to make up the time if the hospital has the need. Please communicate with your recruiter too!
What if I need to call in?
Contact the hospital first as soon as possible and then let your recruiter know. If you are able to make up the time that week or at some point during the contract, that would be ideal.
How do I elect benefits?
The first week of your contract you will receive a benefits packet with enrollment instructions from our benefits department. For any questions, our benefits team can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What type of travel nurse gets paid the most?
The pay for travel nurses varies depending on a variety of factors: location, healthcare setting, specialty, etc. Nurses specializing in the critical care sector, like PICU, CVOR and CVICU, may see higher rates due to the nature and condition of their patients.
What are some of the most important qualities for a travel nurse?
The skills needed to be a successful first-time travel nurse aren’t all that different from staff nursing. You need to be responsible, trustworthy, good with people, persistent and resilient. In addition to those qualities, most travel nurses have excellent clinical and soft skills. Those combined with a desire to travel, an adaptable nature, and penchant for trying new things is the perfect recipe!
