Ask a Travel Nurse Question:
Hi David, I’m thinking taking an assignment in the Sunshine State. What are some Travel Nurse friendly facilities in Florida?
Ask a Travel Nurse Answer:
Hey there, it’s really hard to answer your question in that:
- Florida is a really large state (there could be hundreds of facilities that welcome Travelers)
- I have not had a Travel Nursing assignment in Florida in about a decade
- One Traveler might not have the same experience as another.
Now, if you are simply looking for a facility that uses a lot of Travel Nurses and has little issue with canceled contracts, then that would be a question best answered by a recruiter. If you would like the contact info for one of the recruiters that I use and trust with my travels (and works for a company located in Florida), please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Another good location to find “Traveler-friendly” hospitals in a given area would be in the Travel Nursing forums. Who better to lead you to a Traveler-friendly hospital than another Traveler who has worked there?
Some good forums can be found at ultimatenurse.com, allnurses.com, and the Delphi forum for traveling professionals (go to delphiforums.com, look for the box on the right that says “Explore existing forums”, type in “travel nursing” and the top result is a group called Travel Nurses and Therapists).
Pan Travelers is also another good site with a forum as well as Healthcare Travelbook (healthcaretravelbook.com), which is a sort of Facebook style place for Travelers, which also has a forum.
Sorry I could not be of more specific help, but if you check the aforementioned sources as well as asking any of your Travel Nursing recruiters, they could probably steer you to a great hospital for an assignment.
Hope this helps.
