Working with a Travel Nurse Agency

To get started with your travel nurse career, you may opt to work with a reputable travel nurse agency. Here are the important factors you need to consider when selecting one.

More Regularity Finding Jobs

As we have mentioned before, many hospitals and companies have long-standing deals with travel nursing agencies, which means that they’ll offer the best jobs in exchange for the best people. The more deals of this type that an agency has, the better your chances of getting excellent job opportunities as a travel nurse.

Always inquire with other nurses about the type of assignments that an agency has to offer. Make sure you ask about the duration of the assignment, the variety of specialties, and the quality of the hospitals they work with.

Higher Pay And Housing Options

A travel nursing agency will negotiate with the hospitals for you before you take a job, so it’s in their best interest that you get as much money as possible. This may vary depending on which agency you’re working with, but it’s a general rule that they will want to make a more significant profit, so you should also make as big a profit as possible.

When it comes to housing, it’s essential to pay attention to what you’re being offered in both physical locations and the compensation package or stipend that comes with it. It’s always good to err on the side of caution and check with other travel nurses. Still, in general, agencies want to offer you above-average housing arrangements so that you’ll find it more attractive to keep working with them in the future.

Transparency And Accountability During Assignments

Honesty is vital when it comes to working with an agency as a travel nurse. If you don’t trust your agency, then what is the point of working with them? A trustworthy agency with friendly staff that really cares about solving your problems is the only agency you should work with, so never settle for less! However, when you do find an agency that fits this description, it’s hard to let them go because of the sheer number of benefits they bring.

More And Better Job Opportunities

Working with an agency or a recruiter means having a higher pool of assignments to choose from. This benefit is coupled with the fact that many hospitals and healthcare companies have deals with agencies to get the first pick of the best nurses available and get some referral. Call up some friends and refer them so they can also become a travel nurse.
