A travel nurse assignment is an exciting and lucrative way to get the most out your registered nursing career. Typical travel nurse jobs are 13 weeks long and take place in the location and setting of your choosing. To be eligible for a travel nursing job, you must have one year of hospital-based experience in your specialty area. What's more, starting your travel nursing career is relatively simple. Just follow the steps below:
Our online travel nursing application consists of 4 easy steps and will take you about 10 minutes to complete. This information is needed by our recruiters to present your profile to possible hospital clients and necessary for you to start your travel nursing career.
After you complete your application, one of our traveling nurse recruiters will contact you to determine your travel nurse career goals, location preferences, specialties, previous travel nursing job experience and availability. Following your initial conversation, your Onward Recruiter will review your application, skills checklist, and check your references so that they may start recommending you as a traveling nurse to the appropriate facilities based on your requirements. As a leading travel nurse company, Onward will provide you with dedicated one-on-one service throughout the hiring process.
When your Onward Recruiter has located a position that matches travel nursing career goals and preferences, he or she will set up an interview with you and a representative from the facility, usually a nurse manager. This is normally conducted by phone and is your chance to find out about the hospital, your duties, and the unit you'll be working on to determine if you think it will be a good fit for you. Your recruiter will help answer any questions you have prior to the interview so that you are fully prepared going in to the call. (By taking part in the phone interview, you are in no way obligated to accept the travel nursing assignment. You may choose to take part in as many interviews as you wish to determine which travel nursing job is right for you.)
Once the interview is complete, your recruiter will contact you to let you know if you have been offered the travel nurse job. They will then discuss your pay and benefits and determine if you would like to accept. Assuming you do, your recruiter will begin managing your transition, including gathering documentation and assisting you in housing arrangements, coordination of pre-employment compliance forms and day one instructions for your new travel nursing career.
Once all of the required paperwork is complete, you are ready to embark on your exciting new travel nursing career. As part of Onward's industry leading benefits, you will receive travel reimbursement and free private housing on your new travel nursing assignment. In addition, your Onward Recruiter and service support team will be available to you throughout the duration of your assignment for any questions or concerns you many have.
During the course of your travel nursing assignment, your recruiter will remain in contact with you and also work with you to decide what you would like to do at the end of your 13-weeks. Your options may include extending your assignment at your current location, choosing an alternative facility in the same area, relocating to somewhere new or taking some time off from your travel nursing career. In any case, your recruiter will support you in the process to ensure you have the best experience in the industry when you travel with Onward Healthcare!
