Medical staffing agencies are on the rise as the need for traveling nurses increases. There are close to 30,000 travel nurses in the United States and close to 300 medical staffing agencies to help place them. However, less than 10% of these agencies account for more than 60% of industry placements, which means most medical staffing agencies work with less than 100 travel nurses each year and only a limited number of facilities. Fill out the form below to see what travel nursing opportunities are waiting for you.
Staff nurses often collect paid time off, especially when they have been at the same hospital for several years. It's a nice perk and can come in handy when you are saving up for a big vacation or need to take a few sick days.
Although each hospital will have their own requirements for certifications, it is best to have all appropriate certifications within your speciality as a travel nurse. Doing so increases the opportunities available to you. A few common certifications that are almost always required are PALS for PACU, ACLS for MedSurg and TELE, PALS and TNCC for ER, and AWHONN Advanced Fetal Heart Certification for L&D.Get Started Today
