Travel Nursing Myths Debunked
Are you considering a travel nursing career and have some burning questions? Healthcare staffing leader Aureus Medical is here to debunk myths about this exciting career option.
The full-time staff will not like me.
In any new job, we all want to feel welcomed, right? Hospitals who utilize travel nurses do so because they are in need, whether it’s due to a shortage or filling an extended absence. Your fellow nurses are generally appreciative of you joining their team. It gives them relief from long and extra shifts.
I have to move every 13 weeks.
While 13-week assignments are typical in travel nursing, many hospitals offer extensions that can last months and even years. Once you contract ends, accepting an extension is up to you.
Going from assignment to assignment will hurt my resume.
Actually, it’s just the opposite. The variety of assignments on your resume is very appealing to hospital hiring managers as it shows you are flexible, adaptable, and a skilled, confident nurse.
I have to leave my hometown.
Assignments are available coast to coast, and quite possibly in your immediate area or within a short drive from your home base. You don’t have to travel across the country to be a travel nurse.
