Are you all done with travel nursing? Perhaps your family is growing, or you’ve found your ideal destination thanks to a 13-week travel assignment. Whatever the reason, transitioning from travel nursing to a more permanent position doesn’t have to be demanding. By working with a staffing agency to create your next career move, you can relieve some of the stress and receive the same support you’d have as a travel nurse.Benefits of Traveling First
There are numerous benefits to becoming a travel nurse earlier in your nursing career and then transitioning to a permanent job. To start, you will have experience at multiple facilities. Your encounters with diverse patient populations, different EMR, and medical technology, as well as your experience working with a wide range of supervisors and colleagues, makes you an ideal candidate.
A background of travel nursing jobs will not only translate to a well-rounded resume, but it will also help you determine what you are looking for in a permanent position. You can now weed out some of the traits you didn’t like about your travel assignments, and prioritize what you want the most from your career. You will look into the position’s benefits and responsibilities before being swayed by a warm weather location. In terms of real estate, you’re an educated buyer.
What Does an Agency Offer?
Though you may not be interested in being a travel nurse anymore, a healthcare staffing agency can still provide much-needed resources to help you land the perfect job. As with travel nursing companies, a staffing agency that specializes in permanent placement can offer administrative assistance for licensing and credentialing, along with quality positions at reputable facilities.
Some medical staffing companies specialize in both permanent placement and travel nurse recruiting, making the transition from temporary assignments to a long-term career straightforward. You can be assured that your contracts are negotiated on your behalf so you receive the best salary and benefits package. You may still receive relocation assistance or other bonuses not accessible by other means.
Go for It
If you’re working with a multi-specialty staffing agency like CoreMedical Group, moving from the travel life to growing some roots is as easy as picking up the phone. With all your work history on file, your move from the travel division to the permanent placement division will be easy. You can even ask to speak with a permanent recruiter to hear more of the benefits of a longer-term position before fully transitioning.
If you are currently with a travel-only agency, we recommend finding an agency which focuses on both travel nursing and permanent placements. This will ensure that your experience as a travel nurse is understood and that the benefits of your time traveling the U.S. are conveyed to potential permanent employers.
