Move to the front of the line

You have seen the stories and probably even experienced it yourself as a travel nurse. Travel nursing jobs are not as plentiful right now, but what steps can you take to make sure you stand out among the stacks of profiles on nurse managers desks? One simple way is to make sure you have completed profiles with all the travel nursing companies you travel with. That way when the right travel nursing job comes up your recruiter can submit you to the hospital right away.

You may even want to consider letting travel nursing recruiters and companies you trust and have a good relationship with submit you to open positions as they come up and before they talk to you. Right now travel nursing jobs are being filled that fast. If you do this make sure you discuss a few basics with your travel nursing recruiter first. Make sure you are on the same page when it comes to travel nursing pay, the shifts you want to work, and any other non-negotiables you have.

These simple tips should help you get through this unique time for travel nursing. Oh and here are some other tips for getting a travel nursing job from my last post on the state of the travel nursing industry in 2009. Do you have any other suggestions?
