Traveling Social Worker Qualifications

Social workers must have a bachelor's degree. Many employers also prefer these team members to have a master's in social work, but some may hire without requiring it. Additionally, some states require licenses to work as a social worker, so if you plan to travel to a specific state, ensure you check to see if it requires one.

When planning to work in medical facilities, it's best to have at least two years of experience working in a medical setting, such as a hospital case manager or similar position. Your field experience prepares you for the duties you'll perform during your travel social worker jobs. Also, having a certificate in case management could improve your chances of getting more high-paying assignments.

Social Worker Duties and Responsibilities

When you work in healthcare as a social worker, you focus on providing patients with information and helping them access essential healthcare services. Your duties and responsibilities while doing travel social worker jobs depend on the policies and regulations at your current workplace, but you generally:

  • Advocate for the patient's rights

  • Provide counseling and emotional support

  • Create and implement a patient's care plan

  • Work with insurance and agencies to figure out payment for treatments and medications

  • Make referrals for other services if needed

  • Provide case and care management

  • Arrange outpatient treatment

Your patients are your priority. Working as a travel social worker gives you more opportunities to help patients get the healthcare they deserve and need.
