Changing jobs can be extremely stressful and healthcare travelers do it all the time. Some suggest that it takes up to three months to acclimate to a new job. In many cases, this will be about the time that a traveler will be starting a new assignment and the process starts all over again.
That’s why it is important to track your stressors at a new job and develop healthy responses to the added stress. Coping with the stress of changing jobs is important because it will benefit your health and those who work with you.
The excitement about a new travel job can quickly transform into panic. To combat the anxiety associated with a new travel job, try to exercise regularly, avoid drama in the workplace, and communicate how you feel. Stay positive, set realistic expectations, and manage your time effectively at work. And above all else, get enough sleep.
