Travel Nurse Contract Extensions — In a Jimute

Got a minute? Good! It’s time for the latest installment of Medical Solutions’ In a Jimute video series. This series helps current and aspiring Travelers alike learn more about Travel Nursing — in a Jimute.

Jim’s latest video offers information on Travel Nurse contract extensions — in a Jimute!

Give us the 411, Jim!

When an assignment goes well — meaning both the Traveler and hospital are satisfied with the fit — and the hospital’s staffing need continues beyond the contract end date, a contract extension may be possible. If you’re really enjoying your current assignment and location, contract extension may be a great option for you!

As Jim said, it’s a good idea to think and plan ahead if you are interested in extending your current contract. Communicating openly with your recruiter and the facility about your interest in extending will go a long way towards getting the outcome you desire. You should tell your recruiter you’d like to extend about 6 weeks ahead of your contract end date so that he or she can pursue the possibility. Of course, not every contract is available for extension, but it is a common practice, so speak up early if you’re interested!

Travel Nursing Job Search — In a Jimute

By now you probably know about our In a Jimute video series, which helps busy Travelers and aspiring Travelers learn more about Travel Nursing — in a Jimute.

The latest installment offers tips on how to do your own Travel Nursing Job Search — in a Jimute! Here’s Jim with some quick, helpful information on that.

Great points, Jim!

Even when you’re working with a great recruiter it can be nice to be able to search jobs on your own as well, just to explore and get an idea of what’s out there. The Medical Solutions’ job search truly is an excellent tool for Travelers looking for their next gig, as well as those just looking into traveling for the first time. You can customize your search by title, specialty, and/or location — which really helps you drill down and be able to see only the jobs that might be a good fit for you!

However, as Jim also advised, if you see a job you are interested in or would like to know more about, you should contact your recruiter right away; because in Travel Nursing, posted jobs can be filled very quickly and become unavailable to you. Another benefit to working closely with your recruiter is that they can often let you know about jobs that match your criteria right away so you can pounce on the best assignments for you!

On a related point, this is why it’s so important for you to be in close communication with your recruiter and to make sure that he or she has a really clear idea of what you’re looking for in an assignment and location. The more specific info you provide them, the better they can perform when it comes to recommending jobs and helping you strike while the iron’s hot!

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!

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!

Check out the video below and then click here to read the article on How to Make the Most of Orientation.

You can find all of the How NOT To Travel Nursing Videos here in our Travel Nursing Resources section.
