With the ongoing shortage of qualified healthcare professionals, nurse agency jobs are a great solution to nationwide staffing shortages. Nurses have the flexibility to take great paying jobs in areas they are interested in; patients continue to get the care they need. Nursing agency jobs mean that the nurse is employed by the agency, rather than directly by the facility. When you take a nursing agency job, your contract outlines the details of your employment including your salary, scheduling, and the length you are to work at that specific facility. The majority of nursing agency jobs ask for a 13-week commitment, during which time you'll work at the hospital. trustaff is one of the nation leading nursing agencies, placing nurses in great jobs all across the United States.

The travel nurse agency helps the nurse find the perfect job for them. Travel nursing jobs are often called 'assignments.' Travel nurse assignments typically last 13 weeks, but can be shorter or longer depending on what the hospital needs. Once you've completed your assignment, you can always opt to extend! When a traveler and a hospital are both happy with the arrangement, they can accept another 13 week job at the same location and continue working uninterrupted.
Although there is no universal education criteria for travel nurses, you must be a Registered Nurse with an active license in your home state. To become a Registered Nurse, you must earn your Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) and pass the NCLEX exam. Though the ADN route is the most common way to become a Registered Nurse, many also go on to achieve their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). Once you've met the educational requirements for travel nursing, you'll also want to gain a few years of experience in your area of practice. 1 year is the minimum amount required, but 2 years is preferred and some positions may require 3-5 years or more.Get Started Today
