With nurses in higher demand than ever before, travel nursing companies like trustaff help ensure patients will get the great care they need, even when staffing problems arise. There are close to 30,000 travel nurses in the United States and close to 300 travel nursing companies to help place them. However, less than 10% of these companies account for more than 60% of industry placements, which means most travel nurse companies work with less than 100 travel nurses each year and only a limited number of facilities. trustaff is proud to be one of the leading travel nursing companies in the country both in placements and in industry awards.

Travel nurses take vacation the same way most professionals do, with the added advantage of being able to 'vacation' while they're working. The easiest way for a travel nurse to schedule a vacation is to plan to enjoy some time off between assignments. With most assignments lasting only 13 weeks, you could be treating yourself to two weeks of vacation every few months. Vacation for travel nurses is not generally recommended during the assignment unless you've scheduled the time very far in advance. Travelers are hired because the hospital urgently needs extra staff, so calling off for a day during the week is generally not encouraged. Some travel nursing companies, like trustaff, offer paid time off programs.
As a travel nurse, you will be expected to arrive at your travel nursing hospital orientation ready to go. Orientation varies by facility; at some hospitals you may have a week (or more!) of classroom training. At others, you may only have a few hours of shadowing on the floor. Being flexible and positive are the keys to success when transitioning to a new hospital. Ask questions and make note of where important resources are, like the supply closet!Get Started Today
