ūüďĚKnow your priorities¬†

Before you start searching for your next travel nursing assignment, take a moment to reflect on your priorities. Are you looking for a specific location, a top-notch hospital, or a high-paying contract? Knowing what matters most to you will help you make informed decisions and avoid any potential disappointments down the road.

ūüĒéDo your research¬†

Browse through travel nurse websites, social media groups and blogs to learn about other nurses’ experiences and gather insider knowledge. Don’t forget to check out reviews and ratings on websites like Google and Facebook, as these can give you a sense of what to expect during your assignment.

ūüŹÜWork with a top-ranked agency¬†

Your travel nursing agency plays a crucial role in helping you secure the best assignments. Look for a top-ranked agency like Axis that has a solid reputation in the industry and a wide range of available contracts. Sites like BluePipes and VeryWell Health can be helpful resources in identifying top agencies. Don’t be afraid to ask your recruiter about their relationship with specific hospitals or facilities, as this can influence your chances of landing your dream assignment.
