From catching waves in California to climbing cliffs in Colorado, from sipping espresso in Seattle to indulging in that famous New York City nightlife, travel nursing can take you there — and deliver great pay and benefits, to boot.
What Is Travel Nursing?
Travel nursing is just what it sounds like: The opportunity to work temporary nursing assignments across the country. Typically, these assignments are 13 weeks long and we provide all the amenities of a permanent position! Free housing, 401(k) plans and health insurance are only a few of the perks you will enjoy on your travel nursing assignment.
What’s It Take to Be a Travel Nurse?
Step 1: Complete our Online Application. First, we need an online travel nursing application to present your profile to clients. This takes about five to 10 minutes to complete.
Step 2: Talk to a Nurse Recruiter. Next, you'll speak to one of our friendly, experienced travel nurse recruiters. You'll discuss your personal goals, location preferences, background, skill set, availability, and anything else you feel like telling us.
Step 3: Interview. This is your chance to ask questions about the hospital, your duties, and whether the assignment will be a good fit for you.
Step 4: Acceptance & Documentation. Once we find your perfect job match, your recruiter will start the transition process, working to:
- Help you gather all necessary documents
- Make housing arrangements
- Coordinate pre-employment compliance forms
- Provide day-one instructions for your new travel nursing job
Step 5: Let’s Roll! And you’re ready to begin — it's that simple! Remember, your Onward recruiter is with you every step of the way to answer any questions you have while on assignment — or to help you choose your next destination!
