If you think travel nursing is the right career path for you, how do you even begin? The first step is to partner with a staffing agency to help you find the right contract and get everything set up for your travel, housing, and more. But what are the tangible rewards of working with a staffing agency for your travel nursing assignments? Here are 6 concrete benefits.
Access to the Best Jobs
The single best way to find new travel nursing jobs is by working with a recruiter. Why? Because they work with hundreds, if not more, facilities around the country and work hard to match talent with the openings available. Without access to theses jobs through an agency, you may miss out altogether.
24/7 Concierge Service
Your staffing partner understands that working a travel nursing job is as much a sacrifice as it is an opportunity. They know you need support in all things to make this transition go smoothly. That’s why they’ll offer a 24/7 concierge service to take care of any and all of your needs while you’re on assignment.
Single Point of Contact
While you’re on your assignment, you will also be communicating with just one single point of contact. Agencies know that you need some consistency to have a comfort level with the entire experience. Your single point of contact will handle all of your HR functions, payroll, housing and transportation. You will be confident that they’ll be attentive to what you need.
While there are a lot of benefits when it comes to working a travel nursing job, you probably decided to take this leap because of the money. Travel nurses can make a lot more than their stationary counterparts, and with a travel nursing agency you will be paid weekly. You can count on that money every week to pay all your expenses.
Insurance is also a big deal for many working professionals. And not only will you have access to insurance while working temporary travel nursing jobs, which can be rare for contingent positions, you’ll have it starting on day one. There will be no gap in your coverage, which can give you a lot of peace of mind.
Your compensation will also depend on a number of factors including your skills and experience, the requirements of the job, and the additional expenses you will need to consider while traveling. Each employee is different so you’ll never have to worry about getting a boilerplate solution. You’re unique and you’ll be treated as such throughout your assignments.
