If you are RN with a yen for traveling and are thinking about becoming a travel RN, your best course of action is to contact a travel healthcare staffing agency like MedPro Healthcare Staffing. They have the resources and the knowledge to get your career off to a great start.
Here are some of the things they can do for you:
Help with procuring credentials and licenses.
It can be a hassle to get your credentials at a new location. A recruiting firm can help guide you through the process and even reimburse you for the cost.
Ensure you are successful in the assignment.
The recruiter will follow up with you after you’ve started your assignment to see how things are going. They will check to see if you are satisfied with your housing arrangement, if you have all the information you need about the job, and whether you have any other questions or concerns.
Find what you want where you want.
Recruiting firms have the resources and network to find the kind of position you want in the location you want.
They know what the labor market is like in different geographical regions, where there may be shortages or surpluses in certain specialties, for example. Recruiting firms also work with large networks of healthcare employers, so they know where there are job openings.
Moreover, they also know about the management and culture of these various employers, so they can find a place that would be good fit for you in terms of your preferred working environment and personality.
Also, because their client networks built up over many years, recruiting firms may know about openings that have not yet been advertised.
Recruiting firms can help you through the application process.
The recruiter will work to find the right job for you, whether you work in the intensive care unit or emergency room. The recruiter works with the staff at the agency to set up housing, credentialing, and travel arrangements, so you only have to deal with one person and don’t have to stress over all of the details of an assignment. Agencies are there to help you through the entire process, from the initial interview through salary negotiations.
Sell you to an employer.
Recruiters know what employers are looking for. The recruiter is also experienced in presenting job candidates to employers. They know how to draw out your skills and abilities and present them to a healthcare organization.
A range of benefits.
A recruiting firm can offer flexible scheduling around your needs, private housing or housing allowance, group health insurance benefits, life and disability insurance, full travel reimbursement, and a retirement plan.
At MedPro Healthcare Staffing, we take the time to learn about your skills, experience and career goals, and then use our network of hundreds of healthcare facilities to find the right travel nursing jobs for you. To find out more, contact your recruiter today by calling 1-800-866-8108.
