Ask Lots of Questions

Make sure it is an assignment you totally want before submitting. Ask your recruiter all the questions that you need answered so both you and the recruiter are on the same page when the offer comes in. Some things you may want to ask about include pay, patient ratio and where the facility is located.

Housing

Check out housing options in the area you want to travel to before accepting a contract. Make sure there are plenty of options that have what you are looking for. You don’t want to sign a contract and be scrambling with nowhere to stay! For more information about housing, check out Aequor’s housing resources articles.

Flexibility

Try to keep your options open. The more places you’re open to submitting your resumé, the better chance you have of receiving multiple offers to choose from. Your recruiter will be able to help you find numerous positions that may be a good fit for you! Flexibility with travel nursing is an asset.

Talk with Other Travel Nurses

If your recruiter isn’t able to provide insight into the facility you are going to, or doesn’t have any active nurses there currently, do some of your own research. You want to make sure it’s a facility where you see yourself being happy while working. Talk with other travel nurses online to find out their experience at the facility. Facebook has many travel nursing pages where you can connect with fellow travel RNs.

 

Recruiter Relationship

Stay in touch with your recruiter! Your recruiter should be available to answer any questions that may arise during your assignment. Make sure they are somebody you can go to and that they have your back. You’ll want to work with a great recruiter that gets to know you, so that time and time again you can trust them to find your next travel assignment.
