There is much more to choosing a travel nursing company than just locations and pay. Here are some things you should consider when choosing a travel nursing company!
Direct Recruiter Relationships
As a travel nurse, it’s important to make sure you are working with a recruiter who puts you first. It’s also important that you are working with a travel nursing company who is not going to shuffle you around. Working with one recruiter from start-to-finish is the best practice. If your company does not offer direct recruiter support, in might be time to make a switch.
Experienced and Reliable Staff
It’s imperative for travel nursing success to work with a company with recruiters and client account managers who have the experience to advocate you. Relationships are built on trust. How can you trust a company has your best interest unless its staff has the experience necessary for your success? It’s important to ask as many questions as possible to prove the staff knows their stuff.
Let’s face it…recruiters aren’t usually nurses, nor do they have the clinical knowledge necessary to help you when things happen on the floor. Make sure you are working with a company that offers clinical support with an in-house nurse or experienced clinical professional.
Reputable Track Record
Reputation matters when it comes to picking a travel nursing company you can trust. Make sure you ask questions about how many travel nurses the potential company retains per year. After all, if nurses are choosing to travel with a company, again and again, it’s probably a pretty good sign.
