LPN jobs are one of the most in-demand job types due to historic increases in the healthcare industry over the last few years. Becoming a traveler means great pay with flexible schedules and competitive benefits. Check out the differences between taking a staff LPN job and a travel LPN job to see which one might best suit your long-term goals.
Each hospital has their own requirements for certifications, so it is best to have all appropriate certifications within your specialty. A few of the more common certifications examples include: PALS for Pediatrics, ACLS for Med Surg and Tele, PALS and TNCC for ER, and AWHONN Advanced Fetal Heart Certification for L&D.
For LPN jobs, this might include IV Therapy, Long-Term Care, or Pharmacology skill certifications. Having more certifications ensures that the widest possible range of LPN jobs will be open to you.
Travel nurses enjoy many of the same great benefits staff nurses receive, such as medical, dental, and vision insurance, but they are provided through their agency rather than through the hospital. Some healthcare agencies also offer retirement contribution matching, subsidized housing, licensure reimbursement, and assignment-completion bonuses. Be sure to evaluate all your benefits options when considering which travel nursing agency to work with.Get Started Today
