Hospitals are usually looking for travelers to have 2 or more years of recent acute care experience, and depending on the hospital, travel experience as well. Never traveled before? Not to worry! Our recruiters will match your experience with the right facility where you will get that first travel assignment underneath your belt!
The standard travel assignment today is 13 weeks, but you will find travel assignments as few as 6 weeks to as long as 26 weeks.
We take great pride in taking care of our travel nurses. We know how tough your job can be, and we want to make your transitions from assignment to assignment as seamless as possible. That’s why we start planning for your next travel assignment 3 weeks into your current contract. We handle extensions and redirects.
Your check will be deposited every Friday at 12:01 AM. Expect a follow up call with your recruiter confirming your paycheck.
We offer unlimited referral bonuses. For every nurse that signs a full 13-week contract with us, you will receive a $500 check for every assignment they work. If you and your referral both work with us, we will bump that up to $750. Click here to refer a nurse.
