Frequently asked questions for students.

Assisting nursing and therapy students with the school to career transition.

To assist you in your employment search, the Student Outreach team at Aureus Medical Group® has put together a list of questions frequently asked by students and new graduates who are embarking on healthcare careers in nursing or therapy.

  • Should I travel or start with a full-time job?

    Healthcare careers, whether travel nursing, travel therapy, or full-time positions, require research and planning on your part. There are benefits to each option. Speak to a student outreach coordinator who will help you weigh your options.

  • Can I travel as a new graduate?

    Students and new grads seeking travel therapy jobs are able to be placed in assignments immediately following graduation whereas travel nursing jobs require at least two years of hospital based experience. Our role is to make sure that you are placed in an environment conducive to new and recent graduates. A student outreach coordinator will be assigned to you to help make the transition from school to work. Travel healthcare careers can provide great experience for new and recent grads.

  • How do I get started as a travel therapist or travel nurse?

    Begin by speaking with a student outreach coordinator who will talk with you about where you want to work geographically and what your interests are, then will engage our team members to help identify opportunities that match your preferences. Your coordinator will guide you on what steps need to be taken to begin your travel career. All potential travelers and full-time candidates for Aureus Medical will need to build an online profile and have a current CPR certification. Don’t worry, we will guide you every step of the way!

  • What are the benefits of working in travel assignments with Aureus?

    Seeing the country, working in multiple settings, making great money, and meeting fantastic people are just a few of the benefits of healthcare careers in travel therapy and travel nursing.

  • What are the benefits of utilizing Aureus Medical’s services to secure full-time employment?
