August 6, 2010, Newsletter Issue #59: Tips for Choosing the Right Travel Nurse Assignment

Tip of the Week

Whether you’re just entering the travel nursing field or have been taking on assignments for years, understanding how to choose the right assignment is important. Read on to learn tips for choosing the right travel nursing assignment.

Evaluate the specialty. As a travel nurse, you will have access to a wide variety of positions. If you think you’re interested in a specific specialty, like oncology or emergency room care, apply to those assignments.

Determine the length of contract. Travel nursing jobs can last anywhere from a few months to a year. When accepting your first assignment, consider choosing a shorter assignment. This will allow you to determine if you enjoy travel nursing.

Narrow down locations. Thinking about the places you’re willing to live, before accepting an assignment, can increase your satisfaction with travel nursing. Dust off a map and determine which areas are desirable. Then discuss your needs with an agency like Clinical One.
