Traveler Tips
Love is in the air as Valentine’s Day approaches.
If you’re falling out of love with the idea of steady work in the same workplace day in and day out, you’re in luck - there is a high demand to fill travel allied healthcare jobs. Are you ready to explore your other healthcare job options? Here are four things you’ll love about going on your first travel assignment.

Visiting a Different Location

Steady work is often at odds with people's desires to explore new places. As you take on your first travel assignment, you're beginning your journey of having the best of both worlds, personally and professionally. You get to work and live in a new location, so when you're done with your shifts, you can treat yourself to some sightseeing, as if you were on vacation (while getting paid!)

Experiencing a New Facility

One of the advantages of working in healthcare is the variety of environments in which you can work, from large magnet hospitals to home care. As you embark on your first travel assignment, you're also getting the opportunity to try out different facility types. You could find out you have a deep love for a work environment or specialty you wouldn't have thought before trying or become more certain of your previously held preferences. Either way, travel assignments can give you a more well-rounded background.

Receiving Generous Compensation

As a travel healthcare professional, you are providing a much needed service. In exchange for the stability these roles lack due to being short-term and not ongoing employment, the compensation is usually higher. In addition to a higher salary and comprehensive benefits, you also get free housing during your assignment.

Making a Difference

Short-term assignments are crucial in ensuring that a shortage on a healthcare staff doesn't negatively impact patient care. By stepping in and providing necessary coverage at a facility, you are truly making a difference in the lives of the staff, who could otherwise be struggling with a high workload, and the patients, who can receive more timely care since there will be more adequate staffing.

"Absolutely amazing to work with! Ashley Steen and Amanda Valenziano are perfection. I couldn't be happier to be working with cross country. Despite multiple recruiters calling daily it isn't always about the money but the way you are treated. Thank you for the opportunity." - Amy D RN RRT-NPS
