Medical Solutions Traveler Tips for Travel Nurses

Click here for Traveler Tips for Travel Nurses!

No matter where you’re at in your professional Travel Nursing journey, the sage advice of industry experts can be a huge help as your career moves forward.

And who better to offer Travel Nursing advice than the true experts — fellow Travelers who are out there in the field!

That’s why we put together Travel Tips for Travel Nurses — an awesome assemblage of advice from Travelers that lets you learn from their mistakes and successes.

These are priceless tips for Travel Nurses by Travel Nurses.

The advice includes 11 tips from Medical Solutions Clinical Nurse Manager, Joe B., RN, Alumnus CCRN and former Traveler, as well as many more from actual Medical Solutions Travelers who’ve received perfect hospital evaluations and won the Traveler of the Month or Rising Star awards.

Here are few quick examples of the road-tested wisdom of Medical Solutions’ top Travelers:

Adapt to new coworkers and facilities. 

“The job not only requires knowledge in nursing, but an ability to assimilate with other people and organizational structures. My career as a traveling nurse has given me a whole new life that I highly recommend for others.”

—    Traveler Nina C., Traveler of the Month March 2014

Ask for help.

“Don’t be afraid to ask for help — all those stories of hospital staff disliking Travelers are not true 99% of the time; they like the extra help. Be adventurous and enjoy your temporary new home.”

—    Traveler Danielle A., Traveler of the Month July 2014

Make time for adventure.

“You’re a Travel Nurse, so travel! Check out as many sights as you can! I know you are tired after 3-plus 12-hour shifts, but there is life to live. So whether that means relaxing in a coffee shop, taking a hike on the ocean hillsides, or exploring a new neighborhood in town, get going! Adventure is out there!”

—    Traveler Dan A., Traveler of the Month August 2014
