Ask A Travel Nurse: Choosing the ‘Right’ Travel Nurse Agency

Ask A Travel Nurse choose the right travel nurse agencyGypsy,

Do you have any suggestions on how to choose the right travel nurse agency? I am just starting to look, but I’m overwhelmed with my options. I have it down to a few, but I’m still feeling overwhelmed, like I don’t want to settle on the wrong one (even though I know I can switch later).

Thank you, Anonymous RN 


[quote author=" - Gypsy Nurse, RN"]Thank you for reading The Gypsy Nurse. You have taken the first step on your journey to become A Gypsy Nurse.

Trying to choose the ‘right’ travel nurse agency is an important step in the travel nurse process.   I would not recommend settling with only one. Most travel nurses work with 3 or more agencies in order to have the best job selections and a little negotiating room. If you haven’t read it yet, I would recommend that you read Step #7: Research Travel Nurse agencies in the Treatment Plan for Hypertravelosis.  It lines out how to research Travel Nurse agencies.  In addition, you might want to refer to the Staffing Agency Directory and contact one of those companies.

Finding a good fit with a Travel Nurse agency can be very daunting.  Take your time and remember that it’s only 13 weeks.  If you have tips or tricks to researching agencies, I would love to have them shared in the comments below.  You can also connect with me via Facebook or Twitter.
