The Travel Nurse Secret to Success


So what’s the secret to being a travel nurse?

Being organised! That’s right, you heard it here first, folks!

Agency contracts can fill FAST. To give you an idea: a job can be available and then be filled within 30 minutes. No joke!

So what is the best way to ensure you can land contracts when they fill so quickly? First and foremost, you must have all your paperwork completed in order to be submitted promptly. We can’t get you a job without it!

In fact, we recommend being fully credentialed a minimum of 6 weeks out from your start date. That way, when a suitable vacancy comes in we can submit you right away (and as soon as you say to!). You’ll leave those other potential candidates trailing in your dust.

As a travel nurse, prioritising the following key documents is a great way to get the ball rolling:
