How to Land Your Travel Nurse Dream Job

Are you ooking for your ultimate Travel Nursing job?

Here are four tips to help you get noticed and get the Travel Nurse job you've always dreamed of: 

  1. Keep Learning - It’s never too late to learn something new and with
    free continuing education courses for Registered Nurses, it’s pretty easy to keep yourself up-to-date on the latest in technology, patient care and so much more.                                                                             

    You want to give yourself every advantage possible when applying for your dream job. Certifications may demonstrate expertise, but it won’t do much help if those skills are no longer necessary.

  2. Network - People use social media to network for everything from keeping in touch to organizing political uprisings. If you’re a nurse who’s looking for the perfect job, ask your network of friends and peers to help you.
                                                                                                                            As a Travel Nurse, you can use LinkedIn to post your resume and to network. With Facebook, you can find out about job opportunities and also use it to stay in touch with people while they’re on the road. Be careful about what you post. It's a good idea to keep your personal and professional pages seperate!

  3. Target Your Resume - When applying for jobs, it is important to read job descriptions as they may give subtle clues about the type of hospital work environment you might find and the type of traits they are looking for in a potential candidate.
                                                                                                                        Your first impression relies on your application package, which includes a skills checklists, application forms and your resume. Make sure you meet the requirements for the position and play up your experience and certifications.

  4. Interview Preparation - You’ve submitted your application for review and now you just need to wait for that green light. While you’re waiting, you should use the time to practice just how the interview will go. Remember to let your communication and interpersonal skills shine during the interview! 
                                                                                                                        Topics and questions you can expect during the interview:
    Past Nursing experience. • Specific cases or people that have challenged you. How you dealt with difficult people? • How would you deal with tough situations? • Examples of accomplishments.

Overall, when it comes to interviewing for a Travel Nurse job, the key is to prepare for the interview so you can be confident of your skills and stay calm.

“My friend and I decided to live outside of our comfort zone for 13 weeks. So, we made the most of our first travel assignment by taking road trips. On our days off, we would drive to San Jose, San Francisco, and Carmel, California. We will always cherish that trip.”
