Hesitant to travel a long distance from their home city or state? We advise nurses to be flexible, especially for their first assignments. A lot of hospitals require previous travel nursing experience, so getting your foot in the door on that first assignment is key, and it’s important to be open to this part of the process if you want travel nursing to become a career.
2. 13 week contracts, when you are a traveling:
So maybe something isn’t perfect about the hospital where you’re working or the city where you’re living. While this can take some of the fun out of a travel assignment, look on the bright side! You’ll be out of there in a matter of weeks and you don’t have to go back. That’s a great benefit of travel nursing – you’re a temporary employee, so if there’s something you don’t like, it’s only for a short time!
3. Facility hires more than one traveler:
But you can relax knowing you won’t be the only traveler at your facility or in your area. There will be plenty of other travelers in the same situation who have the same excitement and fears about their assignment, and are anxious to make new friends. Not sure where to start? Apply today!
