Get the nurse job that you want
By Kay Slane
Healthcare Professionals are always looking for the ultimate travel job. And whether it’s mountains, beaches, cold weather, or hot weather, every traveler has their own idea of a great location.
A big problem in 2022 is that jobs are moving at lightning speed. A job can be posted at 9 am, and by 1:00 p.m., the vendor or hospital gets over 100 profiles for nurses who are interested in that position.
With the market being flooded with nurses, it’s tough to find that perfect assignment, especially if you are just getting into travel healthcare with only a few years of experience as a healthcare professional.
Now more than ever, it’s important to do your research in an agency that understands the market volatility and how difficult it is to find travel healthcare jobs. They need to be dedicated to making this process as seamless as possible by giving healthcare travelers the tools to be ready to go at a moment’s notice.
However, some of the best jobs are now being discovered by technology platforms for healthcare professionals that let you find, book, and manage your next job from one place, without a recruiter. With these options you can:
- Search the highest-paying nursing and allied health jobs nationwide.
- Get full pay details with complete transparency.
- Personalize your pay package and benefits.
- Apply, accept offers, sign & upload documents, and get updates in real-time.
- Manage compliance and timesheets, request extensions, and more. All with no recruiter costs, so you take home the most money.
This new technology gives you all the tools you need to have a successful travel career. With the jobs being updated in real-time and alerts sent to your email box, you get the upper hand over other travelers who don’t take advantage of a rapid fulfillment system.
In essence, you’re finally in total control of your destiny. You choose where you want to go. There are no recruiters to try to get you into the assignment that’s most profitable for the agency. You decide what is most beneficial and best fits your criteria.
You also never have to worry about being submitted to a hospital that doesn’t fit your nursing style. YOU control where and when you submit for a contract, ensuring that you take control of your future, and that your profile finds the manager’s desk first.
That sounds like the ultimate travel job to me.
