New year + New recruiter = New Travel Nursing Career


calendarHealthcare Traveler magazine recently released its December edition which annually has its list of Recruiters of the Year ( and Travelers of the Year). And with January approaching and the typical New Year’s resolutions articles beginning to make an appearance I started thinking that for some travel nurses one good resolution could be to find a new recruiter.

The impact that a good recruiter can have on your career as a travel nurse is very real and finding one that you can trust to st and up for you and get the job done is not something you should take lightly. A good recruiter with a good caring travel nursing company behind them should be someone that is not only professional, but someone you can trust and someone you should be able to have a relationship with.

It is often said that a recruiter is a travel nurse’s lifeline while they are out on the road so never just assume that the recruiter you started your travel nursing career  with is the one you have to stick with.

Here are some previous articles we have written on the healthcare staffing recruiter and the travel nurse:

So if you tried travel nursing, but did not have a good experience or are just tolerating your recruiter, maybe it is time to explore your options.

And the Healthcare Traveler article could be a good place to start. The recruiters listed are voted on by their travelers so it is a great recommendation of them by fellow nurses like you.

Here is the article: 2010 Recruiters of the Year
