Don’t Be at a Disadvantage—Why You Need to Work With a Specialty Recruiter to Find a Nursing Job

Hunting for a new job can be stressful. You need to search through online sites for openings, prepare your resume and cover letter, then apply. Then there’s follow up if you don’t get called right away for an interview. And when you’re a travel nurse, there are other factors into the mix, such as maintaining your licensure, securing housing and continuously finding new placements. This is a lot for a nurse to think about when looking for travel nursing jobs. But don’t worry—a specialty travel nurse recruiter is on your side, and can make the task of finding travel RN jobs much easier.

Four advantages of working with a travel nurse recruiter

If you’ve ever wondered why to work with a recruiter, consider the following advantages this relationship brings to your travel RN career:

  1. Get the assistance and support you need. From beginning to end, your travel nurse recruiter is your partner. They’ll help you find placements that match your career goals and help you with the application process. Plus, your nurse recruiter will work with you to relocate and find housing for each assignment, and is just a phone call away if you have any questions or concerns during your placements.
  2. Find the travel nurse job you want. Why search on your own for a travel nurse job, when a recruiter can make the process much easier? Nursing employment agencies understand the industry, and travel RN recruiters have connections throughout. This means you’ll have an easier time finding travel assignments you love.
  3. Get insider information. Do you have questions about taxes? What about state-to-state licensure requirements? Maybe you want to travel to a particular state, but you’re not sure which city is best, or maybe you want to know more about a facility before you accept an assignment there. Whatever your questions, your travel nurse recruiter can help you find answers.
  4. Line up future assignments. Since travel nurse placements last around 13 weeks, you may find yourself searching for your next placement while working your current one. But with the support and guidance of a travel nurse recruiter, you can avoid downtime in between jobs. They can search for your next placement so you don’t have to.
