What leadership skills will a travel nurse or travel therapist need to succeed?

Every industry requires a leader and while a travel nurse or travel therapist may only be on a temporary assignment, she can leave a professional impression. Industry leaders exemplify the key qualities of the career and present coworkers and superiors with competency.

A travel nurse or travel therapist may need to use practical skills to successfully provide dynamic leadership at work. Quality leaders are passionate and dedicated to the tasks as hand. People who constantly express negative opinions can decrease employee moral. A nurse or therapist should lead by example and exemplify quality patient care, professionalism and an upbeat attitude.

Communication is another key leadership strength a travel nurse or travel therapist may wish to develop. Focusing on clear and concise word choice, proper body language and tone can increase a medical professional's ability to deliver news with authority regardless of the situation. 

According to the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, leadership competence influences patient outcomes, continuous learning, relationships with customers, effective uses of resources, successful strategic planning and procedure compliance.
