By now you are probably familiar with our How NOT To Travel Nursing Videos. But if not, they’re a funny bunch of ultra-short videos from the Medical Solutions team that show how Travel Nurses should NOT approach certain elements of the Travel Nursing experience.
We want you to have a laugh, but most importantly to have great success in your career as a Travel Nurse! So, paired with each video showing how NOT to manage parts of your career, such as traveling to an assignment or building a great recruiter relationship, is a handy little article explaining tips for how you actually should act and react in order to prosper as a Traveler.
This month we’re featuring “How NOT to Make the Most of Orientation.”
Travel Nurses arrive at an assignment with the expectation they will be able to hit the ground running in an unfamiliar unit and are often given only a very brief orientation, sometimes as little as 1-2 days. These Travelers are certainly skilled and experienced at their work, but having a whole new landscape to navigate — new colleagues, management, systems, ways of doing things, etc. — can still present an initial learning curve. That’s why it’s so important to make the most of your scant Travel Nurse orientation!
I hope these videos make you giggle and help you navigate your Travel Nursing career! Please feel free to comment sharing any ideas for future How NOT To Travel Nursing video topics.
