Cancelled Travel Nurse Contract? Don’t Panic!

cancelled travel nurse contractWhether it was a complaint from a patient or coworker, the hospital thought you were a bad fit or perhaps you just got sick – cancelled contracts do happen.  It’s normal to think your travel nurse career is over, but fear not, even veteran travelers have a contract cancelled occasionally.

Two very important key factors in maintaining a successful and stable travel nurse career: Have a good relationship with your company/recruiter and have great prior references and work reviews to back-up your reputation and paint you as a good nurse.

 
 
 
 

When a cancelled contract occurs, you should immediately contact your recruiter. This is the person, (rather lifeboat) that will hear out your side of the story and do everything in their power to keep your reputation intact.  Chances are they’ve worked with a traveler who has had a cancelled contract, so they understand the dynamic of such an event. Most companies know that contract terminations can occur for a variety of different reasons. Some of which, have NOTHING to do with the quality and professionalism of the nurse.

Having one cancellation occurrence should not be a problem for the recruiter to get you into your next assignment as soon as possible. However, if it becomes a regular occurrence, it might reveal to them that you are not an ideal candidate for travel nursing. Remember, your reputation can also affect theirs.
